For October’s Breast Cancer Awareness month, the Kimberley Chance Atkins Foundation is "pinking" out Olde Town with pink banners and ribbons on lampposts and signs. Local hair salons are getting in on the action displaying "pigs with a purpose" decorated piggy banks. The salon whose pig raises the most funds will be treated to lunch and T-shirts. During the Olde Town Fall Festival on Oct. 23, foundation members will be working out of a pink-festooned ambulance giving away balloons and information and selling T-shirts. Foundation co-chair, Susan Paul Smith, said in addition to fundraising efforts for a mobile mammography unit, a new focus of the foundation will be to provide information and resources to breast cancer patients. - Staff Reports
