Junior Aquanuts to host breast cancer benefit show

The Junior Aquanut Team has announced that they will host a benefit show to support breast cancer. The event is being held on Wednesday July 24th at 6:00 pm at Lance Park Beach off of E Main St. in Twin Lakes.

The team will be working with the Susan G. Komen foundation to raise money for breast cancer research. The benefit is supported by the team, members’ families, and local businesses. There will be raffles for donated baskets, gift cards, and other prizes. Local businesses and volunteers will also provide fun products and services such as hair braiding, selling food and baked goods, selling beads, pins, and stickers during the show. There will also be plenty of pink Kool-aid to quench your thirst. The team asks all audience members to wear pink in support of the breast cancer cause.

​The Junior Aquanuts hope to build on the success of the first Passionately Pink show, which raised $2700 and attracted 150 audience members. All of the proceeds from last year’s show were donated to the Susan G. Komen foundation, and this year’s show will also help support the same charity. The team is still looking for volunteers and local businesses that are willing to donate to make the show a bigger success than the first.

​Junior Show Director Kristine Hedrick, a breast cancer survivor herself, stated, “I thought these young skiers should experience the joy of fundraising to help their community. I chose Susan G. Komen Passionately Pink for the Cure because, like so many of our grandmothers, mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts, nieces, and girlfriends, I have battled breast cancer.”

​Passionately Pink for the Cure is an awareness and fundraising program benefitting the Susan G. Komen organization to raise awareness for breast cancer and to end it forever. The organization was founded in the early 1980s after Nancy G. Brinker lost her sister, Suzy, to breast cancer.

​The Aquanut Watershows Organization is committed to providing direction to youth and encouraging family participation through a positive learning environment of water-skiing. The team provides entertainment to the community of Twin Lakes and to the entire Southeastern Wisconsin Region and Northern Illinois communities with water and stage shows. The Aquanut Watershows Organization is a not for profit organization that relies solely on the generosity of support and donations from the community. The team is celebrating its 41st anniversary.
