Remarkable Las Vegas teen plans breast cancer awareness fundraiser for her 13th birthday party
Las Vegas teen Kimberlee Wiggins’ 13th Birthday Party & Breast Cancer Awareness Event. On a day when most young girls are thinking about celebrating their first day as a teenager with friends and gifts, Kimberlee is foregoing the presents and asking guests to make a donation for breast cancer awareness. Since she first decided to make her birthday party a fundraiser, Kimberlee’s party has grown from a small group of friends and family to more than 100 guests. Kimberlee’s goal is to raise $500, but hopes that donations will far exceed that amount. All donations will be given to the Las Vegas American Cancer Society. Local businesses also are joining in on Kimberlee’s generosity with pledges and donations of cup cake displays, DJ equipment and photography. Media is invited to attend Kimberlee’s party and interview Kimberlee and her guests.
Remembrance Tree: Party goers can hang cards on the Remembrance Tree to remember those who have been affected by cancer.
Balloon Launch: balloons will be released in honor of those who have lost their battle with cancer.

Many of Kimberlee’s family members and friends have been affected by cancer. Most recently a very close relative was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, and her 93-year-old Grandma is currently undergoing chemo and radiation treatment for her cancer. Kimberlee’s step-grandmother also recently lost her long battle with cancer.
SUPPORTING BUSINESSES :
Nicole Robotham: 150 cupcake display
Storybook Studios: Photography and DJ equipment
S. Rowe has also pledged $1 per tag added to the remembrance tree
Kimberlee is asking for donations of any kind to help with her goal. Anyone who participates will be recognized for their generosity with a sign or an ad in a pamphlet that will be handed out to all guests. Kimberlee suggests: a cash pledge for each remembrance card placed on the tree or balloon released, or a matching donation for the amount raised from Kimberlee’s event.
