When Sabine Parish has a need, her good citizens are faithful to help. The Zwolle Tamale Fiesta Board demonstrated that spirit of generosity recently when they designated one of its official event t-shirts as a fundraising effort to benefit Pink Sisters of Sabine. Pink Sisters serves local breast cancer patients by offering a tote bag of practical items for use during treatment, support and encouragement through social media, and pairing new patients with breast cancer survivor mentors.

On November 8 at their Volunteer Appreciation Dinner, the Zwolle Tamale Fiesta Board led by Pres. Chris Loupe donated a portion of the sales from their “Never Give Up” festival t-shirt to Pink Sisters of Sabine.

The special shirt was created to honor all cancer patients and survivors. Designs featured a deep gray shirt with bubbles of various color representing each kind of cancer and also a similar blue shirt with a white imprint. Sales were brisk, but a few shirts remain if interested persons wish to get one of these 2019 first-ever commemorative shirts.
