In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month during October, CHANGE, Inc. is hosting a valley-wide event this year entitled “Paint the Valley Pink”. Throughout October, business owners across the Ohio Valley are encouraged to help promote breast cancer awareness by decorating their businesses in pink and encouraging their employees and customers to have yearly mammograms for early detection.
Judy Raveaux, CEO at CHANGE, Inc, stated, “Businesses throughout Brooke and Hancock Counties in WV, and Jefferson County, OH are encouraged to participate in the awareness campaign and officially join the “Paint the Valley Pink” contest.”
All contest entries will be given a pink ribbon and event poster to display in their window, and be asked to have their place of business decorated in pink throughout the month of October. The displays will be judged between October 21-23 by their local mayor or selected candidate, and the winner will be presented with a special trophy for best decorated in their town.
- Ribbon and poster provided MUST be placed up front and visible on building door or windows to be judged.
- Businesses must have their decorations up no later than Thursday, October 16th.
- Decorations must stay up until end of the day, Friday, October 24th.
