Fairway Market Paints the Town Pink w/ Shopping Fundraiser

22 Oct


October is breast cancer awareness month and Fairway Market in Stamford is doing their part to help end this awful disease.  On Thursday, 10/24, they’ll be helping Stamford Hospital to “Paint the Town Pink,” a month long campaign that helps to make more people aware of how to protect themselves from breast cancer.

All you have to do is go shopping at Fairway on 10/24 from 5-7 and register your name for the fundraiser.  Once you’ve done that, 25% of what you spend will go to the “Paint the Town Pink Campaign.”  Stamford Hospital will also have their Mobile Wellness Center parked outside and will provide mammograms.  Appointments are suggested (but you could also “walk-in,” so call (203) 276-2602 or (203) 223-4181.
