On Friday, September 13th from 5:30-8:30pm at the Backyard Ale House (Scranton, PA)
friends of the American Cancer Society will host Drink to Pink.
In 2012, approximately 586 cases of breast cancer were diagnosed in Northeast Pennsylvania
alone. Northeastern Pennsylvania is fighting back against this disease by participating in the
American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer® event. Together with millions of
Making Strides supporters over the past two decades, the American Cancer Society is saving lives
and creating a world with less breast cancer and more birthdays by helping people stay well,
helping people get well, by finding cures, and by fighting back.
Members of our community, including Backyard Ale House, American Cancer Society, Zeta Tau
Alpha, and musician Jackson Vee, will unite on Friday, September 13th for an inspirational kickoff
Happy Hour Fundraiser. “Drink To Pink will feature drinks specials, live music and raffle baskets”,
said Making Strides Chair Erin McFadden, “To join in the fun and support Making Strides, a
suggested $10 donation gives you access to this fantastic event!”.
Through the generosity of the community, the American Cancer Society offers free wigs to women
who have suffered hair loss due to treatment, provides patients rides to treatment, and shares
hope, inspiration, and practical information for breast cancer patients. The American Cancer
Society funds lifesaving research and on a daily basis, provides the counseling and day-to-day, 24-
hour support to help patients navigate through some of the hardest days of their lives.
Donations for our raffles are still being accepted. For more information please email
