Coushatta Casino Resort Associates Observe Breast Cancer Awareness Month During October with Day of Remembrance and Pink Ribbon Fundraiser Benefiting Susan G. Komen Foundation
November 1, 2017
On Friday, October 20, in recognition of October being National Breast Cancer Awareness month, Coushatta Family Medical Center hosted events and activities for casino associates honoring the lives of loved ones lost to cancer, supporting those currently battling, and celebrating with those who have survived this dread disease.
Casino associates had the opportunity to donate $5 for a pink ribbon to wear during the entire month of October. On the Day of Remembrance, associates wore pink or commemorative shirts and/or pink ribbons (from the pink ribbon fundraiser). A Pink Pancake Breakfast was served in the associate dining room. A small ceremony with a balloon release was held at Red Shoes RV Park Lodge to honor those affected by breast cancer with sharing of stories, victories, and blessings, followed by a Walk for Awareness around the lake. Proceeds from the pink ribbon fundraiser benefited the Susan G. Komen Foundation to fund research for a cure for breast cancer.
