Pink is the thing

Peoria Fire Fighter Charities held its Pink Pancake Breakfast Aug. 30 in the Pine Room at City Hall. Pink filled the room, and even blinged boxing gloves gave the event an extra punch. A variety of items were on the sale table, and the word was out about the fight against breast cancer.

The FFC will hold its wrap-up luncheon 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Sept. 27 in the Pine Room. In the meantime, volunteers are selling popcorn, and they will do it again 2 to 3 p.m.  Sept. 19. Sept. 10 is the bake sale, which is held 9 to 10 a.m. in the Pine Room. All of the events are designed to bring awareness and donations in the fight to battle breast cancer.

This year’s campaign donation will be going to tnbcfoundation.org (Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation). Campaign organizer Lisa Neely said the city recently lost one of its employees, Jennifer Miller. Miller’s mother also works for the city and the foundation was one of the charities she listed to receive donations in her daughter’s honor.
