You've heard of Black Friday but what about Pink Friday?
Link to Participating Businesses
What is Pink Friday?
Pink Friday is a unique way for people to kick off their holiday shopping and give back to their local community.
Rather than waiting for the traditional kickoff of the holiday shopping season on Black Friday, this is an opportunity to get your holiday shopping started a week earlier while supporting local businesses and Sophie and Madigan's Playground. On Pink Friday, participating businesses will donate a portion of their sales to Sophie and Madigan's Playground.
When is it?
Friday November 18, 2016.
What businesses are participating this year?
Over 20 stores in downtown Frederick, Maryland and approximately 50 online retailers will be participating in Pink Friday!

About last year's event
Last year Pink Friday drew the support of over 50 businesses that donated proceeds of their Pink Friday sales to Sophie and Madigan's Playground. We were joined by brick and mortar stores in downtown Frederick and throughout Frederick County, and online retailers!
And the 2013 Pink Friday also saw the reveal of Sophie and Maggie Moo hot chocolate at Dublin Roasters Coffee and great coverage by local news media:
