SPRINGFIELD ZTA ALUMNAE CHAPTER HOSTS FIRST PINK RECOGNITION GALA

Honoring local breast cancer survivors & warriors while raising money for the Zeta Tau Alpha Foundation to benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation

On October 19th, the Springfield ZTA Alumnae Chapter will be hosting a Pink Recognition Gala at the Hoogland Center for the Arts from 6:30-9:30 pm, to raise money for the Zeta Tau Alpha Foundation to benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The Pink Recognition Gala, premiering in Springfield, will also honor local men and women fighting breast cancer. Tickets are available now on the Hoogland Center for the Arts website: www.hcfta.org/.

Local photographers will showcase their work by portraying a Breast Cancer Warrior. “These strong women, in various stages of the survival process, are the reason we support Susan G. Komen,” said Jenn Fortin, President of the Springfield ZTA Alumnae Chapter. “We are so grateful to all of the businesses that are helping ensure our first ever Pink Recognition Gala is successful by sponsoring the event or purchasing an advertisement in our program.”
