In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Pearl River Resort associates showed their support by donating $12,125 to the American Cancer Society. Each year, the Resort gives its associates an opportunity to get involved with the activities:  “Paint the Promenade Pink” and “Buttons for the Cause.” During “Paint the Promenade Pink,” hundreds of associates wrote their name, a loved one’s name or a positive message on pink ribbon decals.

These beautiful symbols were displayed on the windows of the Silver Star Promenade. Associates also provided generous donations and received a button and shirt during “Buttons for the Cause.” All proceeds will benefit the American Cancer Society.

“Our Pearl River Resort family comes together each year to raise awareness and support breast cancer research,” stated Sonny Johnson, Interim President & CEO for Pearl River Resort. “This is our fifth year having these activities, and I greatly admire the outpouring of love from our associates to those who have been affected as well as their continued support in finding a cure.”
