GREENWICH, Conn. Men and women decked out in pink danced the night away recently in support of Greenwich Breast Cancer Alliance. The occasion was the alliance's first annual Pink Party, held at the Loading Dock in Stamford.
The festive evening of drinks, dinner and dancing to the Motown sounds of Liquid Pleasure wrapped up Men in Pink Day in Greenwich. Proceeds from the event help the alliances mission to find a cure for breast cancer.
The Men in Pink committee [which planned the event] hopes to raise year-round awareness about the need for the women in our lives to stay healthy, said Campbell Gerrish, one of the committees co-chairs. The others are Andrew Mitchell-Namdar and William Sinclair.
Andrew, William, and I feel honored to be associated with the Breast Cancer Alliance and we believe it is vital to have men involved in the breast cancer cause because breast cancer affects more than just women, said Gerrish.
The Men in Pink committee is made up of over 125 men in the greater Greenwich area who are committed to taking an active role in advancing breast cancer prevention and treatment.
The Breast Cancer Alliance is the fourth-largest private, non-corporate organization providing funds for breast cancer research in the United States. Money raised by the alliance helps fund research, education, outreach and breast surgery fellowship programs. The alliance concentrates on helping early detection and treatment programs for Fairfield County women who are uninsured or cannot afford medical care.
The fundraiser took place on June 16, which was declared Men in Pink Day in Greenwich by First Selectman Peter Tesei.
