Clarkdale Goes Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness
To honor the many family and friends who are survivors of the fight against breast cancer for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the ‘C’ in Clarkdale is going pink.
Clarkdale Metals is collaborating with local businesses and residents to fund the painting of the Clarkdale ‘C’ on the mountain in Clarkdale, a common marker for aircraft flying over. The current "C" has become quite weathered and white washed. Property owners, Clarkdale Metals suggested the idea of supporting Breast Cancer Awareness and repainting the "C" pink. They graciously donated all the time and labor while a long-time, caring Clarkdalian anonymously fronted the money for the 15 gallons of hot pink paint. The colorful, educational campaign and transformation of the ‘C’ has been completed just in time for Clarktoberfest this weekend.
As the news traveled about this important cause, other community members and businesses have signed on to contribute to the paint budget including:
• Mountain Gate LLC
• Alcora Marble
• The Filardo Group
• Clarkdale Kayak Company
• The 10-12 Lounge
• Nick of Time Productions
• Group 2 Storage.
In the spirit of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Town of Clarkdale encourages all to donate to your favorite cancer charity.
