ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (August 30, 2018) – October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Tropicana Atlantic City is joining the cause by going pink and hosting special events and promotions to increase awareness and benefit the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.
Tony Rodio, President and CEO, Tropicana Entertainment, is leading the cause through his participation in the Society’s Real Men Wear Pink campaign. As a Real Men Wear Pink candidate, Rodio is committed to raising awareness and funds for breast cancer.
“According to the American Institute for Cancer Research, one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime,” Rodio said. “Our observance is one small gesture to honor those affected by breast cancer and to help the Society save lives through early detection and prevention, innovative breast cancer research, and patient support.”
Throughout the month, look for pink lights on Tropicana’s exterior, including the cupola atop the Havana Tower and every Tropicana fountain in support of the thousands of brave women in the region who have battled breast cancer. Tropicana will donate all coins tossed in the fountain during October to the American Cancer Society. Guests, visitors and employees will also see breast cancer awareness messages displayed on Tropicana’s iconic Multimedia Light and Sound Show located on the Atlantic City Boardwalk.
