The Pink Rainbow Luncheon will benefit the Comprehensive Cancer Center at Rhode Island Hospital, The Adele R. Decof Comprehensive Cancer Center at The Miriam Hospital, and the Comprehensive Cancer Center at Newport Hospital.

The project’s mission is to bring comfort and hope to women newly diagnosed with cancer by funding projects such as the Comfort Gift Bags, support groups, and educational resources. The Pink Rainbow Comfort Gift Bag is filled with approximately twenty items ranging from inspirational books to music to a satin pillowcase.

It is designed to bring a newly diagnosed woman comfort, peace, and hope as she begins her healing journey. We anticipate that 400 comfort bags will be distributed annually as a result of The Pink Rainbow Luncheon.

J.McLaughlin in Newport, RI will be donating 15% of all sales Wednesday, October 6 – Sunday, October 10.
