Breast Cancer “Pinktober” Presentation

October at the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office was designated “Pinktober” in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In an effort to support the fight for the cure there was a month long fundraising event that included a Boston Butt sale, a Pink T-shirt sale with scheduled “Pink Out Days”, pick ribbons and other items were sold, and a Silent Auction for gift basket. St. Joseph’s/ Candler Hospital also provided free mammogram screenings with their Mobile Mammography Unit.

Through the efforts of those involved with this campaign a $4,300 check was presented to Joseph Walraven of the American Cancer Society last Wednesday in the media room of the Sheriff’s Office.
