When I worked as a flight attendant, October was a pivotal month. Since I’ve stopped flying, I’ve been searching for ways to get involved in my local community. Raising money for various Breast Cancer Awareness charities has been something something I’ve always enjoyed dedicating my efforts toward. This year, I was invited to help assist in promoting the Fifth Annual Pink Bash hosted by the Orlando Sentinel, and if the previous events are any indication of all the excitement to be had, a large group of Central Floridians are getting together for an absolutely fabulous time. I am looking forward dressing up and heading downtown with my friends

Pink Bash is produced by Orlando Sentinel Media Group. A portion of the event proceeds benefits Libby’s Legacy Breast Cancer Foundation, a local breast cancer foundation formed in Central Florida to provide support directly to Central Floridians. Libby’s Legacy Breast Cancer Foundation was formed in 2007 just a year after Robin and Marty lost their mom, Libby Maynard, to Stage IV Breast Cancer. Libby was full of fun, faith and courage. The organization hopes to embody her spirit through the foundation by being secure enough to be vulnerable, strong enough to be gentle, wise enough to be humble and powerful enough to serve others. The mission of Libby’s Legacy is to provide comprehensive breast health care to the underserved Central Florida community through education, mammograms, follow up diagnostics and Hope Coaches on the journey from diagnosis to treatment and beyond.
