The members of the committee that planned and organized the "Tie the Town Pink" event in celebration of the 25th anniversary of Susan G. Komen for the Cure would like to thank the many communities and businesses that were kind enough to display our pink ribbons. The requests for ribbons in support of our efforts were overwhelming. In addition, many of you requested that they stay up longer than Promise Week of January 22-26, so we will extend the ribbon campaign an extra week.
Thank you to the businesses that displayed our message on their electronic signs. We would like to thank the local radio stations for reporting the new name and logo for Susan G. Komen for the Cure. It is with much gratitude that we thank the Dispatch for their generous coverage of both the local and national media and advertising. It generated additional interest in our event that helped make it the success it was.
My personal gratitude goes to Joanne Forrest, Emily Lanin, Tammie Benson, Kim Watson, Kim Reese, and Colleen Moser for their hard work and efforts on the transition team. In addition, to the volunteers that assisted us in placing the ribbons around our service communities; your time is deeply appreciated. Breast cancer touches all of us in one way or another and the Brainerd lakes area has once again demonstrated their support of our efforts to fulfill a "promise" of a world without breast cancer.
