FRIDAY FEST POSTPONED UNTIL 10/14/16
Join Main Street Fort Pierce, FPUA and the Riverdawgs for a special October Friday Fest. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we hope everyone will join us and wear PINK at Friday Fest while stopping by the FPUA booths and trucks to learn about energy conservation for Public Utility Week.
Friday Fest is Friday October 14, 2016 5:30 to 9:00 pm at Fort Pierce City Marina Square
Real Men Wear Pink is a distinguished group of community leaders raising awareness and funds for this year’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event. Together they are making a difference to create a world free of the pain and suffering of cancer. The mission behind Real Men Wear Pink is two-fold. The first is to raise awareness of a man’s role in breast cancer. Men can be diagnosed with breast cancer. In fact, over 2.600 men will be diagnosed this year. However, men are affected by breast cancer when their wives, mothers, sisters, daughters, or any other woman in their life is affected by breast cancer. The second mission behind Real Men Wear Pink is to put action behind the awareness. Each man participating in this year’s campaign is asked to raise at least $2,500. All the money raised will help fund breast cancer research as well as programs and services here in St. Lucie County to help breast cancer patients.
Get your Pink cups at Friday Fest – Sponsored by Harbor Community Bank pink cups will be available for a 1.00 donation for your beverage of choice. All donations collected from the cups will be donated to Real Men Wear Pink and the American Cancer Association.
