Throughout October, 400 pink flags will fly on Good Samaritan’s front lawn. Local residents and businesses may purchase a ribbon on a flag to personalize their support of the WIBCC or remember a family member or friend whose life was impacted by breast cancer. All proceeds will be used to support the coalition’s Lend A Helping Hand program.
The kick-off event for the Pink Flags of October will be Sunday, October 2, 4 p.m. on Good Samaritan’s front lawn on Montauk Hwy.
