ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (September 26, 2014) — October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Tropicana Casino & Resort is joining the cause by hosting several special events, programs and promotions to increase awareness and benefit local cancer support charities.
“According to the American Institute for Cancer Research, one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime,” Tropicana’s General Manager Steve Callender said. “This is our chance to help raise awareness about the importance of early detection through fun and memorable experiences throughout our resort.”
Lights for the Cure
This October, Tropicana will join the Philadelphia Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and its media sponsor, CBS 3, in turning the Atlantic City skyline pink in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This “Lights for the Cure” campaign is a salute to the thousands of brave women in the region who have battled breast cancer. Look for pink lights on the Tropicana cupola atop the Havana tower and every Tropicana fountain.
Little Pink Dress Party
This year, SoJO 104.9 will host its Third Annual Little Pink Dress Party at Boogie Nights. The event takes place on Saturday, October 4, 2014 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Attendees are invited to think pink and wear a little pink dress (or something pink) and dance the night away. Party goers will enjoy a live performance from Jonathan Jackson, known to countless fans as Avery Barkley, the bad-boy rocker on the hit ABC musical drama “Nashville.”
General admission tickets are $14 per person. SoJO VIP tickets, which include a meet and greet with Jonathan Jackson, are $25. All tickets include entry to the Boogie Nights nightclub experience following the SoJo 104.9 party. A portion of all ticket proceeds will benefit Gilda’s Club of South Jersey, a broad, community-based program of social, emotional, and educational support for cancer survivors and their loved ones.
P.F. Chang’s China Bistro
To raise awareness of the ongoing battle against breast cancer, P.F. Chang’s will decorate the majestic eleven foot tall horses that guard the restaurant entrance with pink garlands, ribbons and streamers. The Chinese bistro will also offer pink sushi as a special menu item for the month of October.
