Lane & Associates had the pleasure of attending the 10th Annual Pink Tie Affair in Downtown Raleigh at the Marriott City Center in honor of the amazing 1ofUs Foundation. This year’s Pink Tie Affair was Carnival-themed and the entire fundraising event was decked out from head to toe with a Live Auction, performances, and entertainment!
The 1ofUs Foundation was started in 2010 and has since assisted more than 4,000 cancer patients in direct, non-medical related expenses that occur during cancer treatment. This financial assistance ranges from grocery assistance, gasoline and transportation, to rent, utilities, and even childcare. This direct financial assistance during cancer treatment is so important and has touched so many lives.
As a proud Presenting Sponsor for the event and long-time supporter, Lane & Associates was able to donate over $50,000 to support the cause! Thank you to all other supporters who have donated to this amazing foundation and supporting our North Carolina friends and families going through tough times during cancer treatment.

Our Spring cleaning turned into Summer cleaning but we raised some funds along the way!
Since the original Yard Sale date was rained out TWICE, we were so happy to finally hold our Warehouse yard sale benefitting the Kay Yow Cancer Fund. Staff at each of our dental offices donated items ranging from clothes to toys to large kitchen gadgets to help us raise money for the Kay Yow Cancer Fund on Saturday, June 22nd. We are so thankful for the entire Fuquay-Varina community for showing up to our Warehouse Yard Sale and graciously donating to a cause dear to our hearts!
Our dental staff put out yummy snacks and drinks for sale while participants came to shop. They also helped many folks carry large items to their vehicles. Not to mention the hours of labor leading up to the event – through arranging transport from far away offices like Winston-Salem or tagging each toy with price tags. We are so grateful for our team!
Take a look at the photos from the event below! We also want you to keep a look out for our upcoming raffle in July! It’s benefitting Kay Yow Cancer Fund once again to help us complete our goal of raising $50,000! Here’s a hint…we do it every year and always sport some fabulous Summer suns on our shirts! 🌴Can you guess what it is?
Our Roseboro office asked the community to be on the lookout for 16 hand-painted Breast Cancer Awareness rocks that they hid throughout the town. Each rock is painted with an encouraging note attached to the rock telling those lucky few to “Throw Rocks at Cancer!” and spread awareness!
Each person who found a rock was asked to post a photo of themselves with the rock, tagging the Roseboro office, and using our hashtags to share on social media! After they completed their task they were asked to hide the rock again for someone else to find and help continue to spread awareness. Check out some of the photos of rock finders below or visit their facebook page to see all the photos!
From the Roseboro office: “Cancer has affected each of us in some way and we couldn’t think of a better way to spread awareness other than involving our entire community! #LoveRoseboro”
