NEWS RELEASE

Lauderhill Commissioner M. Margaret Bates Leads the Charge in Breast Cancer Awareness Efforts

 

Commissioner Bates has been the champion of Lauderhill’s Breast Cancer efforts for many years now. This year she is taking it up a notch. 

First, starting October 1st for the entire month of October, residents can expect to see City Hall lit up in the color of HOT PINK! With that, there will be giant PINK RIBBON hanging from the 4th floor to the 3rd floor to remind us all to get tested for breast cancer.  The sight is really spectacular!

Second, Commissioner Bates has initiated the sale of the City of Lauderhill Breast Cancer Awareness Shirts. The light weight beautiful polos are adorned with the City’s logo wrapped up in a Bright Pink Breast Cancer Ribbon. The Polos are available in 4 colors and are available on our City website for purchase!  A portion of the proceeds will go to Florida Breast Cancer Foundation. You can log on to http://lauderhill-fl.gov/news-events/breast-cancer-awareness-month to see more information on the shirts and make your purchase.  A link is also provided from the front page of the City’s webpage.

Finally, an Official City Proclamation will be given to the Florida Breast Cancer Foundation in the month of October, and donation buckets are located at City Hall for those who would like to leave a donation.

“Early detection, education, and research are all important elements to Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  I felt the City Staff had always supported my efforts to raise awareness about this cause. This year I wanted to go City-wide with my efforts for Breast Cancer Awareness. Would you please help us in the good fight and help us knock out Breast Cancer for good?  Please consider donating at City Hall or purchasing one of our beautiful City of Lauderhill Cancer Awareness Shirts,” explains Commissioner Margaret Bates.

If you have any questions, please call us at 954-730-3000.
