This year Brandon Irizarry of Bumble B Marketing and Bzarry Events wanted to make the event spectacular, pairing great comedians and music for a can’t-miss festival that will bring both awareness and funding to two great organizations helping in the fight against breast cancer. About 1 in 8 U.S. women (about 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of their lifetime and in 2016, an estimated 246,660 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 61,000 new cases of non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer. About 2,600 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in men in 2016, and a man’s lifetime risk of breast cancer is about 1 in 1,000. Statistics like these are the reason First Company Pink and The Breast Cancer Research Foundation are stepping in to help fight back.
With Town Supervisor Rich Schaffer recently making October 6th the official day of breast cancer awareness, First Company Pink’s Third Annual Breast Cancer Fundraiser is committed to help raise research funds with your help!
Come and join in at this great event for an even greater cause Thursday, October 6th starting at 2:00PM at Babylon Town Hall Park- 200 Sunrise Highway, Lindenhurst, NY!
on the lawn of the County Executive Office at 1550 Franklin Ave, Mineola, NY 11501!

More About First Company Pink
First Company Pink is an independent 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization founded in April 2010 by Donna Cioffi, as a selfless act of courage, following her own personal battle with breast cancer. Donna along with others close to her, have experienced firsthand what it’s like to be on the frontline of the battlefield. In the very first moment of diagnosis we are transformed into soldiers, warriors, fighters … forced to “choose to live”. Blessed with the gift of a second chance we stand strong as an example of hope and possibilities. First Company Pink will remain vigilant in its continued effort to eradicate breast cancer in this lifetime.
