Paint The Town Pink
About Paint the Town Pink
For the past eight years, Pain the Town Pink has encouraged every woman, 40 and older, to have her annual mammogram. In 2013, Paint the Town Pink was in 23 towns in Monmouth and Ocean counties, with more business and community support than ever before. You can join the mission. Help us encourage women in your community to get their annual mammogram.
How We Do It
Paint the Town Pink merges a breast cancer prevention, detection and treatment campaign with a fundraising component that raises funds to provide screening mammography to underserved women in our community.
As a member of the community, we have the unique opportunity to integrate an important message into a woman’s daily routine – whether it is in the places she shops and dines; works and lives; or through her community’s schools and community organizations.
Every year in May, as women visit our Pink Partners – local businesses who support the mission of Paint the Town Pink – they are able to pledge to have their annual mammogram, learn about the importance of early detection and annual mammography, and if they choose support another woman’s mammography through the Pink Fund.
