How It Began

Sheldon M. Lincenberg, MD, founded the event in 1995 to promote breast cancer awareness and to raise funds for local breast cancer organizations. Pink Ribbons is for women who are fighting breast cancer and for those who may encounter it in the future, either themselves or through loved ones.

Parisian signed on during the developmental phase of this event because of their strong commitment to community service. Pink Ribbons has continued to grow through the years, raising over $1.5 million dollars since its inception. In 2007, with the purchase of Parisian, Belk became the new presenting sponsor of Pink Ribbons.
