Dupont, Lutheran Hospitals to Think 'Pink'

(Tuesday, May 8, 2012)
Fort Wayne, Indiana Volunteers from the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer will visit the campuses of Dupont and Lutheran hospitals Wednesday, May 9, to place 150 pink ribbons at each location in advance of the official 2012 "Turn the Town Pink" campaign kickoff Friday.

The annual event is an effort to raise awareness and funds to help combat breast cancer through research. Lutheran Health Network has participated as the primary Turn the Town Pink campaign sponsor each year since 2008, a commitment it made after nearly a decade of sponsoring the Vera Bradley Classic, according to a press release.

The official kickoff for this year’s campaign will take place at noon Friday at One Summit Square in downtown Fort Wayne. Breast cancer survivors, Dupont Hospital CEO Chad Towner, Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer volunteers and other special guests will be on hand to receive an official proclamation from Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry.

In addition to placing pink ribbons adorned with the names of honorees all around town, numerous activities will take place throughout the month leading up to the 19th annual Vera Bradley Classic Women’s Golf and Tennis Tournament that takes place Friday, June 1, through Monday, June 4.
