For the fourth consecutive year, the Oxnard Police Department joined other law enforcement agencies across the country in October’s “Pink Patch” campaign to raise funds and spread awareness for the battle against breast cancer. This year, Oxnard P.D. partnered with the newly-formed Oxnard Police Community Foundation and teamed with several local sponsors to raise funds through online auctions, a GoFundMe campaign, and several community “pop-up” fundraisers hosted at Oxnard Starbucks locations and Farmer’s Markets. These efforts raised a total of $15,000.00 for the Ribbons of Life Breast Cancer Foundation, a local 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity that provides support to breast cancer patients and survivors across Ventura County.
Oxnard Police Senior Officer Maria Peña spearheaded the campaign, and noted, “We picked Ribbons of Life as this year’s recipients, because I like how their services stay local and specifically benefit breast cancer patients and survivors who are right here, in our county.”
Upon receiving the donation at a recent presentation, Ribbons of Life President Sylvia Rosolek stated, “We would like to express our sincere gratitude for your Pink Patch campaign to benefit Ribbons of Life Breast Cancer Foundation. Senior Officer Maria Peña did an outstanding job in organizing and executing the month-long event. It was heartwarming to see the Oxnard Police Department, Starbucks, and the community come together to support our cause. Thank you to everyone involved. Your generous donation will allow us to continue our mission to educate, advocate and meet the social and emotional needs of Ventura County women and their families facing breast cancer.”
The Oxnard Police Department and Oxnard Police Community Foundation would like to thank campaign sponsors: The Oxnard Peace Officers’ Association, Starbucks, Stacy Miller Public Affairs Inc., Payden & Rygel Investment Management, Absolute Plumbing & Rooting Inc., Nacho’s Towing, Oxnard Farmers Markets, Napalm Screen Printing, AAA Pool & Spa, Auto Body International, and Vogue Sign Company for their partnership in making this campaign possible.
