After raising more than $142,000 for breast cancer services in 2012, Puttin’ on the Pink also has received a national cancer awareness award. The Corvallis Clinic Foundation’s gala fundraiser celebrating cancer survivorship earned the Judge’s Choice award from the national Cancer Awareness Advertising Awards program.
Puttin’ on the Pink was honored as the top entry for informing and educating the community about cancer risk factors, early detection, as well as diagnosis and treatment services available.
“It is so rewarding to know that a heartfelt event, such as Puttin’ on the Pink, can be further recognized for the visibility we bring to the community about our cancer survivors,” said Judy Corwin, Foundation and Marketing Director at The Corvallis Clinic. “This recognition was a team effort _ one that is shared by those who made the event so successful with all of those who supported it!”
The pink carpet event at the CH2M-Hill Alumni Center in October 2012 raised money for Project H.E.R. (the initials stand for Help, Enlightenment and Resources), which provides awareness, education and support for women in Benton, Linn and Lincoln counties facing breast cancer.
Entries in the Cancer Awareness Advertising Awards are judged by a panel of healthcare marketing experts representing all aspects of medical advertising throughout the industry. Puttin’ on the Pink competed against entries from across the country, as well as from Canada and South America.
