Pink Warrior Angels seeks businesses to “Pink out the town”
By LYNETTE SOWELL
Covite and breast cancer survivor Julie Moser is delighted that her newly formed nonprofit, Pink Warrior Angels, received notification last week of its approval as a 501(c)3 nonprofit.
With the month of October being breast cancer awareness month, Moser wants to kick things up a notch through her initiative, “Paint the Town Pink.”
She is now seeking business owners to compete by decking out their store fronts in pink that will be displayed starting October 1. A panel of judges will visit each business to see who “pinks out” the best.
The winning business will be announced at the October 16 Copperas Cove Bulldawgs home game, which will be the site of “pinking out” Bulldawg Stadium, just like last year.
The entry fee is $10 for businesses, with proceeds going to Pink Warrior Angels and the support the group provides.
Moser formed Pink Warrior Angels this summer to support breast cancer patients in particular, because of the long road they face. Pink Warrior Angels pairs cancer patients with volunteers, many of whom are cancer survivors themselves, as a support connection during a patient's treatment.
Also, Moser is raising funds to prepare “chemo bags” which family and friends of cancer patients can order to be shipped anywhere to a cancer patient.
