Crew Charlotte Kicks Off 2013 Queen City In Pink Initiatives
Charlotte, NC (July 30, 2013)
CREW Charlotte is proud to announce the kick off of its 5th Annual Queen City in Pink (QCIP) campaign partnering with Susan G. Komen® Charlotte. QCIP works to turn the Queen City pink September 28 – October 6 in conjunction with National Breast Cancer Foundation’s® Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.
CREW Charlotte’s QCIP initiative asks the owners and tenants of Charlotte properties to illuminate their buildings with pink lighting, temporarily turn fountains pink with dye or lighting and other displays of pink including ribbons, 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.
“We were thrilled to have had nearly 120 participants last year show their support in QCIP. Our city really came together and made a huge impact. We have set our goal high for this year at 150 participants which is a 25% increase from last year. Just like breast cancer screening and detection, we feel it’s never too early to start. We have an amazing committee who has been working to secure participants since April of this year,” said Nicole Green, CREW Charlotte’s Queen City in Pink Committee Co-Chair.
