Block Party 2022

Our annual community event to celebrate our supporters and raise awareness of pancreatic cancer was an amazing day! A massive thank you to all of you who contributed in any way, you have all made a big difference in the Purple Pansies fight to conquer pancreatic cancer.


It was fun and feasting for all the family at the 2022 Block Party! We completely took over the parking lot in front of Casa Nuova and turned it into a sea of purple tents! An enormous feast was prepared, complimentary to all that attended. As well as a long buffet spread, there was a huge paella, treats from the smoker and even a whole pig being roasted! Everyone was treated to live music with an up tempo latin beat, as they enjoyed the food. Games were set up for all and there was even a face painting station for the brave. Most of all, we all had a chance to meet with friends and neighbors, both old and new to share stories, food and fun times! We are so thankful to all of those who attended and those who chose to donate to the cause, all helping create much needed awareness for pancreatic cancer.
