Seminole Casino Coconut Creek Launches 'Pink It Up' Campaign to Support Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is national breast cancer awareness month.

The full month of October, Seminole Casino Coconut Creek will support breast cancer awareness through its “Pink It Up” initiative.

Guests can purchase a “Pink It Up” t-shirt for $10 or a wristband for $2 at the Player’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 Gilda’s Club South Florida (GCSF).

“We are proud to offer 'Pink It Up' as an opportunity for our guests to get involved and support such a worthy cause this October,” Steve Bonner, president of Seminole Casino Coconut Creek, said in a press release. “Although 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.”

GCSF is a free cancer support community for women, men, children and teens with all types of cancer. The club offers more than 60 networking groups, lectures, workshops, specialized children’s and teen programs, and social events monthly in a nonresidential, non-medical, home-like setting.

In 1997, GCSF moved into its first “home” in office space donated by Memorial Healthcare Services. In 1999, GCSF moved to its current home—a warm, welcoming, historic house in downtown Fort Lauderdale on the Tarpon River. GCSF membership is currently more than 3,000 adults and 500 children.
