Think Pink - All Year Long!

Think Pink - All Year Long!



“Natchez ranks among the most charitable cities in America. So it should come as no surprise that we have been a leader in raising funds to fight breast cancer for some time. 


In 2018, I was honored to be the man in pink for the “Real Men Wear Pink” fundraiser, a national competition that supports the American Cancer Society. Our ‘Team Natchez’ raised $38,000 that year, placing in the top 20 of over 2500 teams nationwide. Subsequent fundraisers have raised even more! 


This month, we are celebrating our 6th ‘Paint Natchez Pink’ awareness campaign, encouraging women who may have delayed getting mammograms to schedule their screenings now. We all know someone who has fought cancer. But together we are winning the battle. May we continue to give generously to help find a cure!”
