Okaloosa 2016 ‘Wear Pink Day’ is October 1


The Okaloosa County Commission has proclaimed Saturday, October 1 as “’Wear Pink Day” in Okaloosa County for the third consecutive year. Fort Walton Beach Medical Center and Twin Cities Hospital encourage residents to kick off Breast Cancer Awareness month by wearing pink and posting their photos to social media using the tags #WearPinkDay and #StandingUpToBreastCancer.

As part of Fort Walton Beach Medical Center and Twin Cities Hospital’s Breast Cancer Awareness month activities, they’re following up Wear Pink Day with a free community dinner – Standing Up To Breast Cancer – on October 6 at the Niceville Community Center from 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm.

As you visit the hospital facilities throughout October, you’ll notice hundreds of pink flamingos available for adoption! Donate $15 at either hospital and take your flamingo home to display your support for Breast Cancer Awareness. Flamingos will also be available for adoption at the Standing Up To Breast Cancer dinner. 100% of the proceeds from this fundraiser benefit the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer and Relay For Life.

Seating is limited; registration is required! For more information, or to secure your reservation, call 855-614-7274!
