Photos of the decorated carts will be shared on Pink Aroostook’s Facebook page ( on the day of the event, and the cart that receives the most photo likes will be crowned the decorating contest winner.  

Businesses and individuals may financially support the Pink Aroostook Scramble by sponsoring a hole sponsor as a memorial tribute to a loved one, or in honor of someone who is currently living with cancer.  A $100 donation will sponsor a hole, and the sponsor will receive a sponsorship sign at the event.
