Minnesota Ovarian Cancer Alliance Will Light Duluth Teal
It starts with Duluth's icons being lit teal and leads up to the Elizabeth Busche Golf Scramble on Sunday.
If you are wondering why the Aerial Lift Bridge and Enger Tower are colored teal this month, September 8th and 9th, it's for the Minnesota Ovarian Cancer Alliance, a Foundation for Ovarian Cancer. As usual it will make the Bridge and Tower take on a different feel.
As beautiful as it will be it is mostly meant to call attention to Ovarian Cancer, a Cancer that many people still don't understand. Nowadays, everyone knows someone or has a relative or loved one who has been taken by cancer. There is still a need for awareness so to do that there will be a teal color added to the Duluth Icons.
The main points of the weekend are this:
- Educate women and the community about symptoms of ovarian cancer
- Raise money for ovarian cancer research
- Provide support and hope for patients and families
You are invited to both of the events.
On Saturday, Sept. 8, it's the annual Light Duluth Teal Gala at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center (DECC). From 6 pm to 10 pm you’ll enjoy a three-course meal, entertainment, an entertaining live auction and more while the teal glow of the Aerial Lift Bridge lights the night. Register below!
