Valley Goes Pink

The Valley Goes Pink is a grassroots, community-wide effort throughout the Lower Naugatuck Valley 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!

Throughout the year, but mostly the month of October, Valley towns are invited to attend a variety of unique fundraising events and marketing programs to support the campaign. Please plan on attending one or more of these events and marketing programs to support the campaign. Contact Jodi Dawley (203-521-2233) or Sue Petrizzo (203-400-1068) for more information.
