The Pink Santa Hat Movement provides educators, public safety, and medical professionals who are fighting or have bravely fought breast cancer with an opportunity to lift their spirits through hope, support, and fellowship!


The initiative began after Elise Dunnigan Bethel, the daughter/twin sister of The Wright Stuff Chics’ mother daughter duo was diagnosed with stage IV metastatic breast cancer in 2015, as a way to raise awareness of this dreadful disease. 

On July 31, 2018, Elise lost her battle, making this cause even nearer and dearer to our hearts. 

Our precious Elise Dunnigan Bethel fought for three and one-half years, inspiring many people to keep fighting!

The Pink Santa Hat Movement will continue forward in Elise’s honor to celebrate her life and our love for her, in an effort to promote the legacy of such a remarkable woman with the hopes of honoring and celebrating other phenomenal women in education fighting breast cancer.

"I will never ever forget this weekend and the way that you all embraced us and showered us with goodness from the very start to the very end."
