GO FOR PINK is a series of events Breast Cancer Alliance (BCA) dedicates to October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
On October 6th, GO FOR PINK will bring the local community together for a special day of shopping and events in the Town of Greenwich to raise awareness and critical funds of eradicating breast cancer and to further support BCA’s mission: the funding of innovative research, education, support and affordable screening for all women.
Many merchants will be generously donating a portion of their sales to BCA on October 6th and some will be extending their donation throughout October with both in-store and online sales.
Educational and inspiring talks will be offered to the community during the day with Dr. Barbara Ward, Medical Director of the Breast Center at Greenwich Hospital at a breakfast at Richards; and with Geralyn Lucas, author and breast cancer survivor who will have a talk and book signing for “Then Came Life” at a cocktail party at Terra Ristorante. Terra has also planned a special prix-fixe dinner/wine pairing to celebrate their 25th anniversary that day which will benefit BCA.
The BCA flag raising ceremony will begin the day on October 6th led by First Selectman, Peter Tesei at Greenwich Town Hall.
It is a great day to spend with friends and family to shop, sip and support with our local merchants partnering with BCA and rallying around improving breast cancer survivor rates, prevention and quality of life while working towards the goal of a cure.
Online shopping with some merchants will be offered throughout the month of October at HTTP://BCAGOFORPINK.ORG (with code: BCA16)
