Pink Tulip Project Planting

Robin Whitten, founder of the Pink Tulip Project, and Myron Graessle, a volunteer from Friends of the Eastern Promenade, plant bulbs at Cousins Memorial  on the Eastern Promenade on Oct. 23. The tulips will bloom in May along with thousands of others across Maine in remembrance of patients and survivors of cancer and to raise awareness of the disease. Begun in 2006 by Whitten, a breast cancer survivor, the Pink Tulip Project has raised more than $120,000 to date to benefit the Women's Cancer Fund at the Maine Cancer Foundation.The Cousins Memorial garden is sponsored by Friends of the Eastern Promenade. You can donate to the garden at pinktulipproject.org (click on Give to a Garden - Friends of Eastern Promenade).
