The 10th annual K2 Women’s Weekend to benefit the Anita Salas Foundation will go on despite the lack of snow. In place of events on the 9th and 10th of February, a dance party will be held at Bath Tub Row on February 10th starting at 5:30 pm. The event will include tasty brews from Bathtub Row Brewing and great food from Los Alamos’ own Secret City. It will also feature a DJ mixing dance tunes and an auction and raffles for cool prizes and merchandise. The lack of snow is not an indication of the need for funds for this worthy cause so we really need everyone to come out and support our friends and neighbors in Northern New Mexico who are battling breast and cervical cancer!
In the past 9 years this event has over $83,000 to provide financial assistance to New Mexican women and men diagnosed with breast or cervical cancer. Our goal this year is to reach $100,000 which will only be possible with the support of our community, as a whole. If you won’t be available on the 10th, not to worry as we have added a GoFundMe site (https://www.gofundme.com/k2-womens-weekend) this year to make donating possible from anywhere.
In addition, Chef Laura Hamilton will be offering a special wine and dinner pairing at Pig + Fig Cafe along with a silent auction. Separate registration required (link below). All proceeds benefit the Anita Salas Memorial Fund.
The Woman's Weekend at Pajarito Mountain supports The Anita Salas Memorial Fund. This fund provides financial assistance for breast and cervical cancer services incurred by New Mexican women and men screened by the Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program.
A 2-day event is a big commitment. I'd like to emphasize that one does not have to be available for the whole weekend. I encourage you to attend what you can or what you'd like to and make it your own. Don't let what you can't do keep you from doing what you can! Sign up now!!
