BOCA RATON, FLORIDA – Throughout the month of October, (Breast Cancer Awareness Month), Boca Raton will paint the town pink as part of “Go Pink! Boca,” an initiative to show support for the many affected by breast cancer. “Breast cancer is a disease that touches so many individuals, families and communities,” said Susan Haynie, Mayor of Boca Raton. “‘Go Pink! Boca’ is our way to bring residents and businesses together to raise awareness for this important cause.” From October 1 – 31, the Mizner Park Amphitheater will color the fountain and landmark clock tower with pink lights, and a pink hue will shine on the internationally acclaimed work of art IMAG_NE at Sanborn Square. Both the Mizner Park Amphitheater and Downtown Boca websites and social media channels will also “Go Pink!” And, for the third consecutive year, the City of Boca Raton Fire Department will wear special t-shirts in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Many Downtown Boca merchants and businesses will also support the cause by offering their own “Go Pink!” promotions and branding. On Saturday, October 25, thousands will join in the American Cancer Society’s 12th Annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk that begins at the Mizner Park Amphitheater and routes walkers through Downtown Boca along Palmetto Park Road to AIA and back. IMAG NE will be on display in Downtown Boca’s Sanborn Square October 1-November 30. For additional information please visit www.mizneramphitheater.com or www.downtownboca.org.
