Long time Commissioner M. Margaret Bates has been the champion of Lauderhill’s Breast Cancer Awareness efforts. In October, this ambitious Commissioner is unveiling an entirely revamped Awareness Campaign for the residents of Lauderhill.
First, her newly designed City of Lauderhill Breast Cancer POLO SHIRTS are currently on sale on the City’s website: https://www.lauderhillshop.com/store/p1/2018_Breast_Cancer_Awareness_Shirt.html.
The Polo Shirt Collection includes a new Lauderhill Breast Cancer Logo on a brand-new style Polo-shirt. In addition, there are an array of new colors to choose from! Residents are urged to get the Lauderhill Breast Cancer Awareness Swag now so on October 1st, they can roll out their new look! Shirts are only $30, and a portion of the proceeds will go to the Florida Breast Cancer Foundation.
Huge pink ribbon
Second, as night falls on October 1, residents are also urged to drive by City Hall located at 5581 W. Oakland Park Boulevard to see the new two-story tall PINK TWINKLING LIGHT RIBBON that will hang from the roof top. This ribbon was designed and made just for the City of Lauderhill. The ribbon will light up Oakland Park Boulevard like never before!
“The components of Lauderhill’s Breast Cancer Campaign appear light hearted with a bit of glamor and fashion. I do this to gently remind us all to get tested for breast cancer. Most people, including myself, have felt the horrible effects of what cancer can do to a family. So please see the shirts, the ribbon and all of the many reminders during the month of October and get checked. Take a loved one to get checked,” exclaims Commissioner Bates.
Finally, an Official City Proclamation will be given to the Florida Breast Cancer Foundation on October 29. Residents are also being urged to come out that night to the Commission Meeting and drop off a donation in one of the many pink buckets around City Hall.
“I would like to thank all the residents who get involved in this effort. I also commend the City Staff who hold bake sales and fundraisers all month long to raise funds for this cause. It is quite beautiful to see everyone come together for Breast Cancer,” concludes Commissioner Bates.
