WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The New Hanover Regional Medical Center Foundation's Pink Ribbon events scheduled for next month have been postponed due to the recent impacts of Hurricane Florence.

The Pink Ribbon Project luncheon scheduled for Oct. 4 and the Pink Ribbon Project cocktail party scheduled for Nov. 9 have been rescheduled for March.

Below are the new dates, locations and times.

Pink Ribbon Project Luncheon When: March 14, 2019 Where: Wilmington Convention Center Time: 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.

Pink Ribbon Project Cocktail Party & Celebration When: March 22, 2019 Where: Cape Fear Country Club Time: 7:00 p.m. until 11:00 p.m.

The foundation's executive director says the postponement of the events does not interfere with the Pink Ribbon Project's ongoing efforts to support women and their fight against breast cancer.

"The Pink Ribbon Project offers year-round support, providing women who need access to compassionate care," said NHRMC Foundation Executive Director and Vice President of Development Schorr Davis." The annual luncheon and cocktail party are community celebrations and fundraising opportunities for these efforts. This postponement will in no way deter us from continuing to deliver care to those in need."

The Pink Ribbon Project provides patients in southeastern North Carolina access to 3D mammography screenings, comfort to those undergoing cancer treatment and community awareness of breast cancer and the benefits of early diagnosis and screenings. The Pink Ribbon Project funds more than 1,000 screening and diagnostic breast procedures each year for eligible patients.
