Think Pink!

Posted on October 3rd, 2015 by Audrey Korotkin

The day is here! On Sunday, The Bubbies of Temple Beth Israel have the honor of leading off the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk at PNG Field! Thanks to all of our supporters, we have raised over $2,800 even before race day – which is remarkable for a small but strong group. Please remember to WEAR PINK and walk with us in spirit if you can’t be there in person. We are so grateful to all of you.
