Paint the Valley Pink 2017 Winners

Since 2014, CHANGE, Inc. has hosted the Paint the Valley Pink event that encourages businesses throughout Hancock and Brooke Counties in West Virginia and Jefferson and part of Columbiana Counties in Ohio to decorate their businesses in pink to raise breast cancer awareness throughout the Ohio Valley during the month of October.

“By hosting our Paint the Valley Pink contest, it encourages local businesses to not only have some fun decorating, but to get involved and help educate our community about breast cancer and the importance of getting your mammograms regularly for early detection.” said Judy Raveaux, CEO of CHANGE, Inc. Throughout eleven communities, 86 local businesses took on the Paint the Valley Pink challenge of raising breast cancer awareness.

CHANGE, Inc.’s Board of Directors, management and staff would like to thank the mayors and their candidates for not only making the tough decision of selecting a winner, but agreeing to participate in their respective community. The winners were presented with a pink, handcrafted trophy made by CHANGE, Inc.’s Weirton clinical manager, Peggy DeStefano, and her daughter, Kristy Milstead.

Again, CHANGE, Inc. would like to thank everyone who participated in this year’s campaign and for bringing breast cancer awareness to the Ohio Valley.
