The month of October calls for gals and guys alike to show their support for Breast Cancer Awareness month — just by dressing in pink.

The evening’s emcee will be Lyndsie “J” Lou, the host of The Valley Catch, which is a videography company equipped with a Spokesmodel to help and promote local businesses. Lou is also the host of “Destination TV,” an upcoming ABC show. But, attendees may best recognize her from “The Bachelor: Season 16,” as one of the bachelorettes vying for Ben Flajnik’s heart.

Entertainment includes beats by DJ Knick Knack. Specialties pink cocktails will be served, including the Blueberry Margarita, the Elevated Awareness (Hypnotic Harmonie, Chopin Vodka, freshly squeezed lemon juice, topped with champagne and a slice of strawberry served in a flute) and the BCA Sangria (a medley of dry white wine, strawberries, raspberries, lemon, lime and orange infused with Chopin and Hypnotic Harmonie, topped with a splash of ginger ale).

But what makes this cocktails even sweeter is that for every drink sold, $1 will be donated to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. It doesn’t stop there, though. Every pink drink sold throughout October will net an additional $1 toward the foundation.

“From now through October 31, Arizona and beyond has the opportunity to express its love, appreciation and gratitude for those impacted by breast cancer by sponsoring pink light bulbs, which will be placed on the Marshall Way Bridge in coming days,” said Christine Fenwick, a breast cancer survivor and executive director of AIBH.

Arizona Institute For Breast Health Announces Return of Pink Light District Fundraiser

As part of the annual Pink Light District to benefit the Arizona Institute for Breast Health (AIBH), members of the Arizona community and beyond are invited to sponsor a pink light in honor or in memory of a loved one touched by cancer. The Scottsdale-headquartered, nonprofit organization stands behind its mission to provide women diagnosed with breast cancer in Arizona a second opinion on treatment options completely free of charge.

“The lights, available for sponsorship now through October 31, will glow over the Marshall Way Bridge in downtown Scottsdale starting October 4 and throughout the rest of Breast Cancer Awareness month,” says Christine Fenwick, executive director of AIBH and 17-year breast cancer survivor.

In addition to the light, each honoree who is gifted a light will receive a Pink Light Tribute Card, and his or her name will be placed in the 2012 Pink Light Honor Album on the AIBH website. “This year, we are extremely honored to have Dr. William Leighton as our 2012 Pink Light District Premier Sponsor,” Fenwick says.

In addition to Dr. Leighton, other valuable corporate sponsors include Yeager North, Iron Medical Systems, Olive & Ivy, Anasazi Internal Medicine, HMA Public Relations, Sapporo Scottsdale, Leighton & Abdo Attorneys at Law, Fiesta Furnishings and Arizona Breast Cancer Specialists, which is led by AIBH co-founder, Dr. Coral Quiet, who also serves as the organization’s volunteer medical director.

Fenwick adds that other interested potential partners are welcome to visit AIBH’s website  and contact her team to arrange a fundraising event.

“Since our inception in 1998, we’ve sought to provide education, resources and support to newly diagnosed patients with the help of our volunteer team of physicians and medical professionals whose specialties include breast radiology, breast surgery, medical oncology, radiation oncology, reconstructive surgery and breast pathology,” says Dr. Quiet, whose team was recently named a 2012 Healthcare Leadership Award honoree and a 2012 Phoenix Business Journal Health Care Hero finalist for the critical service they provide to the community.
