Posted By: Ace Burpee · 11/3/2010 2:41:00 PM

The colour purple is awesome. Looks good. Makes you feel good. We’re down with purple.

Just a heads up though… purple is also the colour of pancreatic cancer awareness month.

So what month is that? Well, we’re in it. November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month.

This silent killer claims the life of one North American every 17 minutes. Pancreatic cancer is the 4th leading cause of cancer deaths in Canada and the USA and there currently is no cure.

On Saturday, November 20th join Ace Burpee at the 1st Annual Purple Party in Support of Pancreatic Cancer Research and Awareness.

This formal “purple carpet” event happens at Earls on Pembina from 9:00 pm – 1:00 am. Guests will be treated to fabulous music, complimentary appetizers and glass of champagne, the opportunity to bid on wonderful silent auction items, free giveaways and an inspirational evening dedicated to pancreatic research and awareness.

Tickets are $25 and can be purchased online at or by calling .

Proceeds to Pancreatic Cancer Canada.
