Campus Denim & Pink Day set to raise awareness of breast cancer

LAWRENCE — The Emily Taylor Center for Women and Gender Equity will host Denim & Pink Day on Oct. 18 in an effort to raise breast cancer awareness.

Departments may participate with a suggested donation of $5 per person to allow faculty and staff to wear pink and denim that day. Proceeds will be given to a needy student affected by breast cancer in the form of an award to be used at the university bookstore.

To participate, please send your department name, building, and room number as well as a contact person with their name and phone number to Jenn Streeter, 864-3600. Checks should be made out to the Emily Taylor Center for Women and Gender Equity, and cash is also accepted. Packets will be dropped off by participating offices Oct. 15 and collected Oct. 22.
