Mott Community College’s chapter of the American Association for Women in Community Colleges (AAWCC) is hosting a Pink Thursday Holiday Bazaar Thursday, Dec. 14 from 4-8 p.m. in the Ballenger Field House on the main campus in Flint, to benefit the American Cancer Society and Breast Cancer research.
Just in time for Holiday shopping, the Bazaar will feature more than 19 crafters and vendors offering handmade jewelry, upcycled artwork, home décor items, Lularoe clothing, pottery, woodwork, paper crafts, cosmetics and more.
"Pink Thursday is a spin on Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Small Business Saturday, Giving Tuesday,” said Dr. Madonna Jackson, former MCC AAWCC president. “The AAWCC mission is to change women's lives through education, service and leadership development. Our chapter decided to make our annual holiday gathering an opportunity to give back to the community by supporting women business endeavors and continuing our support for breast cancer research,” she added.
There is a $2 suggested donation at the door. If shoppers would like to make a donation to the American Cancer Society at the Bazaar, that can be done via cash or check made payable to AAWCC.
The MCC AAWCC is part of the College’s annual support of “Think Pink” month in October in support of Breast Cancer awareness and research. The MCC AAWCC chapter and its events are open to anyone who supports that mission.
The MCC chapter of the AAWCC was established in 2015. The mission of the organization is to "change women’s lives through education, service and leadership development." This year the organization held its first-ever scholarship brunch and was able to award three students with book scholarships to assist with their educational costs. Future goals include a campaign to help write Genesee county women back into history.
