Chastain’s Studio Lofts in Lancaster, SC, is proud to present “Silhouette of a Woman Showcase of the Arts” in September and are looking for participants to display their talents.
This show is to benefit the American Cancer Society Making strides Against Breast Cancer and presented by Primax Pink Warriors and hosted by Pfeiffer University at the Park Road campus in Charlotte, NC.
Last year’s Art exposition held at Chastain’s Studio Lofts in Lancaster raised $2,600 to go toward the $47,000 that the team raised for the Making Strides.
We have set our goals higher and this year’s event is expected to draw 300 plus supporters.
We expect to reach out to previous donors, fundraising team members and their contacts Pfeiffer University Alumni and friends, professional organizations as well as many more.

“This is our eighth year participating with Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. Our team started off with 12 walkers and our team now has over 200 walkers each year. Can we beat that this year? I hope so! We started off as a small group of co-workers walking in honor of my Mom who lost her third battle with breast cancer. Now we are a team committed to raising awareness for early detection, raising funds to support the programs offered by the American Cancer Society, and most importantly funding research to help find a cure for breast cancer. Over the past seven years over 800 Primax Pink Warrior tee shirts have been worn and we have raised over $150,000. We would love to have your help to celebrate more birthdays!” Laura Renegar- Team Leader.
