Charlotte Turned Pink For Crew Charlotte’s Queen City In Pink

During the first week of October, 166 Charlotte businesses turned their commercial real estate properties pink for CREW Charlotte’s Fifth Annual breast cancer awareness campaign, Queen City in Pink (QCIP).

The QCIP initiative asked owners and tenants of Charlotte properties to illuminate their buildings with pink lighting, temporary pink fountain dye or other displays of pink including window ribbon decals, banners and flags. These efforts show support for the community’s survivors of breast cancer and honor those who have been affected by or lost their lives to the disease.

 
“The amount of QCIP participants has doubled in two years! We went from 80 participants in 2011 to 166 in 2013. There are no words to describe the overwhelming feeling of support we have received from Charlotte businesses to make this happen. Almost everywhere you turn, there is pink, reminding breast cancer survivors and those who have lost a loved one, to stay vigilant in the fight for a breast cancer cure,” said CREW Charlotte’s Queen City in Pink co-chair Nicole Green, Jones Lang LaSalle.
