Last year’s success of the first Pink Sunday called for a second edition. So the YWCA fundraising event is back, but with improvements.

“We’re trying to make it a little more family oriented,” event chair Heather Singleton said of this year’s Pink Sunday, which raises funds for the nonprofit’s programs to end violence against women and children.

She said the event will bring more activities for the children, so parents can shop, browse and have fun while the children are kept occupied.

The food part will be better too.

“I’m planning on having more food trucks this year, so definitely plan on coming hungry,” Singleton said.

There will be a lot of new vendors joining those from last year who already signed up, she said. Last year, there were about 80 vendors attending the event.

The fashion show, the highlight of last Pink Sunday, will be back, as well as belly dancers. And there will be some new live entertainment too.

“It should be a great day,” Singleton said.

Pink Sunday will be held at the Kaua‘i Veterans Center in Lihu‘e Nov. 23, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
