Tamale Fiesta donates portion of T-shirt sales to Pink Sisters

For the first time ever, the Tamale Fiesta Board is designating one of its official event T-shirts as a fundraising effort to benefit a local organization. A portion of sales from their “Never Give Up” T-shirt in honor of cancer patients and survivors will go to Pink Sisters, a new Sabine Parish non-profit that provides support, encouragement and help items to local breast cancer patients undergoing treatment.

“It’s something that’s been on my mind a long time,” Board Committee Member Cindy Ezernack shared. “For the last few years, it’s been a dream to raise funds for a great local cause with sales from one of our Fiesta T-shirts,” she said. The Tamale Board voted to donate a portion of this years Cancer Ribbon shirt to the Pink Sisters of Sabine.

The Zwolle Tamale Fiesta has invited cancer patients and survivors to be their Parade Grand Marshals this year, so reaching out to Pink Sisters of Sabine was a natural tie-in to this year’s event.

“We are thrilled to be the recipients of whatever amount is raised from the sale of these beautiful T-shirts,” Laurie Gentry, one of the Pink Sisters founders, announced. “I hope every cancer patient, survivor and supporter of those who have faced cancer will get a shirt to celebrate the brave journey of every patient,” she said.
