It took a large effort from Marketplace Foods, many members of the community, and a LOT of cakes, but that hard work finally paid off.
MarketPlace Foods presented a check today to Trinity Health - donating over 8-thousand dollars to the hospital.
Project Pink is a program to raise awareness and money for cancer.
In October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the pink program had a community wide cake decorating contest.
Those cakes were then auctioned off.
Money raised from the cake auction in Minot last month was donated to Trinity's Cancer Exercise Program today.
The exercise program, based at the YMCA in Minot, is designed to help cancer survivors build back strength.
For the Creator of Project Pink, the exercise program hit close to home.
(Nyla Stromberd, Creator, Project Pink) "My husband went through the program here at the Y and he is in remission. And so it's very heartfelt that we wanted to choose something like this. It was wonderful for him and I just wanted to be able to give it to people of all ages and that they could come and enjoy."
Nyla said this year's auction exceeded expectations and will continue Project Pink in the future.
