Mark your calendars, because throughout the month of October, Valley towns and organizations are invited to host a variety of unique fundraising events and marketing programs to raise awareness and support for the cause.
What is The Valley Goes Pink?
The Valley Goes Pink is an annual, grassroots, community-wide effort of fundraising events and programs that take place throughout the month of October to:
- create awareness about breast cancer and the importance of early detection
- support the Hewitt Center for Breast Wellness at Griffin Hospital, and
- showcase partnering organizations
- all at the same time!
Help make this year’s Valley Goes PINK the best yet! From hosting Pink Parties in homes, to “pinkifying” businesses with ribbons or lights, or hosting dress down days and auctions – the possibilities are endless – and you can help by planning or attending one or more of these fun happenings!

Also, when you purchase items through Amazon, be sure to go through smile.amazon.com. When you do, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible Amazon Smile purchases to Valley Goes Pink with choosing Griffin Hospital as your charity of choice.
