Seminole Casino Coconut Creek is proud to announce â€œPink It Up,â€ an initiative to support Breast Cancer Awareness throughout October. All month long, guests can purchase a â€œPink It Upâ€ t-shirt for $10 or a wristband for $2 at the Playerâ€™s Club Xperience, as well as elect to add $1 to their bill at any casino restaurant. All proceeds will benefit Memorial Health Services and Gildaâ€™s Club of South Florida.
â€œWe are proud to offer â€œPink It Upâ€ as an opportunity for our guests to get involved and support such a worthy cause this October,â€ said Steve Bonner, president of Seminole Casino Coconut Creek. â€œAlthough many great strides have been made in breast cancer awareness and treatment, there remains much to be accomplished and we are dedicated to doing all that we can to make a difference.â€
Gildaâ€™s Club South Florida (GCSF) is a free cancer support community for women, men, children, and teens with all types of cancer.
