‘Paint the Town Pink’ fundraiser for breast cancer survivors and local patients is held Saturday night in the Bricktown neighborhood of Oklahoma City

OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – An outdoor celebration will take place tonight, Saturday, October 9, in the Bricktown area of ​​Oklahoma City to raise funds for local breast cancer patients.

Project31, an Oklahoma City-based nonprofit, will host Paint the Town Pink, a family celebration, in the Joe Carter parking lot, adjacent to the Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark, 400 E. Reno.

Doors open at 6.30 p.m. The event will start at 7 p.m. All ages are welcome.

“The event will provide a fun and socially distant evening for the family while raising funds for breast cancer patients across Oklahoma,” a press release from Project31 reads.

Food trucks will be on site, along with games and face painting for kids, a live DJ and dance floor, cash bar and other features.

A fireworks display will close the evening at 9 p.m.

Paint The Town Pink, now in its seventh year, is traditionally a formal indoor activity during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Organizers have moved him outside in 2020 due to COVID-19, and are pursuing him outside this year to ensure public health and safety.

“Nonprofits have been hit very hard over the past year and a half,” said Project31 founder Sarah McLean, “and we thought this would be a great opportunity to give families a way to go out and socialize a bit, while raising a lot – the necessary funds, all in a safe environment.

The event is formatted in a drive-in style. Event-goers can stay in their cars and listen to the festivities via AM radio or go out and enjoy the food and evening entertainment.

Proceeds from the event will be donated to breast cancer survivors in the region, who will be honored throughout the evening. Admission is a tax-deductible donation of $ 150, which covers an entire car.
