Bristol is Thinking Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

From White to Pink Bulbs for October

As you all know or should know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Ladies make sure you get those ta-tas checked.  Bristol decided to be AWESOME this year and change the Historical Bristol Sign's light bulbs from white to Pink.  You may find out more by visiting the www.realwomenpickpink.com website.

I am fortunate to be able to say that my MOM is a two time breast cancer survivor and one of my best childhood friends Kristy is a survivor as well.  Pictured above is my friend Kim, a survivor, who attended the ceremony with her mother, also a survivor.  We all know someone affected by this disease.  So of course I sponsored two of the pink bulbs in honor of my loved ones, those funds will go to more research.  After finding my honoree's names on the big banners, a touching ceremony was held inside the historic train station, while people lined both sides of State Street and Martin Luther King Blvd. there was a count down to the big reveal...A PINK BRISTOL SIGN!!!  Camera flashes went off everywhere!!  It was truly a historic moment that I will never forget.   Great job Bristol for Thinking PINK this month.
