On Sunday, May 12th, Joseph P. Riley, Jr. Park became a vision in pink to help Save the Milkshakes. To celebrate Mother’s Day, and to raise awareness for Breast Cancer, the Charleston RiverDogs teamed up with a locally founded Breast Cancer Awareness nonprofit, Save the Milkshakes for the inaugural Pink in the Park event at The Joe.
“Since Breast Cancer Awareness Month does not fall within our season, it was important for us to show our support somehow.” says Director of Community Relations, Lauren Allio. “We feel that the inaugural Pink in the Park event went very well! And we look forward to continuing it in the future.”
As a special promotion for Pink in the Park, $1 from every Beer Shake sold on Sunday May 12th was donated to Save the Milkshakes. These proceeds, along with the funds collected from selling “Save the Milkshake” t-shirts, which you can purchase for the rest of the RiverDogs season at the Pie House, located within Joseph P. Riley, Jr. Park, will go towards breast cancer research.
Save the Milkshakes is a locally founded Breast Cancer Awareness Organization with the goal to help local women diagnosed with breast cancer while pregnant. Save the Milkshakes hopes to provide funding to breast cancer research while bringing together mothers that have just been diagnosed with breast cancer with those that are able to donate breast milk to newborn babies.
