Opening National Breast Cancer Awareness Month with Pink Tree for Hope Lighting

Leg Anker joins Heritage Trust and North Shore Youth Council to light the tree of Heritage Park pink

MOUNT SINAI, NY – On Thursday, September 30th, Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker joined Heritage Trust President Victoria Hazan, Vice President Rose Scotto and Treasurer Lori Baldassare, North Shore Youth Council’s Executive Robert Woods, Executive Board President Larry Kogel and Executive Board Vice President Jaime Johnson for the ceremonial lighting of the Pink Tree for Hope at North Shore Heritage Park. For the entire month of October, the tree at Heritage Park will be illuminated with pink lights in recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

I, like so many others, have lost a loved one to breast cancer, said Legislator Anker. As National Breast Cancer Awareness month begins, the lighting of the Pink Tree for Hope is an important tradition in our community that brings awareness to the pervasive reality of breast cancer. I am grateful to North Shore Neighbors Helping Hands Coalition for all that they do to help breast cancer patients, survivors and their families in our local community. Thank you to the Heritage Trust, North Shore Youth Council and Koch Tree Service for their support in making this tradition possible.

I am honored once again to participate in the lighting of the North Shore Heritage Park Pink Tree for Hope, said President of North Shore Neighbors Helping Hands Coalition Patti Kozlowski. For me, the tree represents Sarah’s commitment to the community to raise awareness and to support our local families fighting breast cancer. For local families, it’s a symbol of hope that through awareness, education, early detection and research, we can see an end to this deadly disease. North Shore Neighbors sends thank yous to Sarah’s office, Bob Koch, Koch Tree Service and the Heritage Trust for making this happen.

The North Shore Neighbors Helping Hands Coalition is a not-for-profit organization that works to raise funds to provide various support services for Town of Brookhaven community members in treatment for cancer, including household bills, utilities, medical or non-medical expenses, wigs, surgical supplies, house cleaning, meals, childcare, and grocery or gas gift cards. For more information, please call the North Shore Neighbors Helping Hands Coalition at 631-830-5274 or Legislator Anker’s office at 631-854-1600.
