Thank You to Our Real Men Wear Pink Sponsors

September 28, 2022

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and there are plenty of great ways to support the cause.

This year, we’re doing our part at Paraco through the American Cancer Society’s Real Men Wear Pink initiative. This organization provides an opportunity for men to take an active role in the fight against breast cancer through fundraising efforts that will go toward research and support those affected by breast cancer.

This year, our CEO Joe Armentano nominated General Manager Jeff Palen to become Paraco’s Real Men Wear Pink ambassador.

Here’s what Jeff has to say about participating in the fundraiser:

Breast cancer affects everyone – it doesn’t matter if you’re a man or a woman. That’s why I’m stepping up to fight breast cancer with all I have. Since I’m in a position to make a difference within my community, I believe I have an obligation to do so. By raising money and awareness through Real Men Wear Pink, I’m helping to save more lives from breast cancer.

Every day, the American Cancer Society is saving more lives from breast cancer than ever before. They’re helping people take steps to reduce their risk of breast cancer or find it early when it’s easier to treat. They provide free information and services when and where people need them. They fund groundbreaking breast cancer research, and they’re working to ensure access to mammograms for women who need them.

To thank everyone for their support, Paraco is holding a wine and cocktail event on Thursday, September 29th, called Sip and Support.

We’re so thankful to our campaign donors, who stand with us in our effort to raise awareness and support:
