PINEHURST – If you’re interested in a different, and tasty, way of increasing breast cancer awareness, join in as the community prepares to “Stand Together and Drink Pink.”
During October, FirstHealth of the Carolinas will help boost breast cancer awareness by setting up pink lemonade stands throughout its hospitals and selling the beverage at 50 cents per cup. All proceeds will be donated to the Cancer CARE Fund of The Foundation of FirstHealth in support of local cancer patients.
Moore County businesses and community members are also invited to take part by setting up a stand in front of their store front, restaurant, school or home, and donating the proceeds to the Cancer CARE Fund or to the breast cancer charity of their choice.
On Oct. 30, participants will be invited to a pink lemonade function at the Clara McLean House from 11:30 p.m. to 12:30 p.m. to turn in their donations and “stand together” to raise breast cancer awareness.
“We thought it would be a great idea to involve the community in our annual breast cancer awareness campaign,” says Laura Kuzma of the Cancer CARE Fund. “A pink lemonade stand allows community members of all ages to participate and raise awareness for a great cause.”
If you would like to participate by having your own stand, “Drink Pink” promotional materials and participation and donation instructions can be downloaded here.
Those participating are also invited to take pictures of their stand, pink drinks and customers and post them on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, tagging FirstHealth and using the hashtags #StandTogether and #DrinkPink. (www.facebook.com/firsthealthofthecarolinas and www.twitter.com/firsthealth).
If you have questions or would like more information on how to participate, email firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information on the Cancer CARE Fund of The Foundation of FirstHealth, visit www.NCCancerCare.org.
