More Delray Beach Businesses Join Downtowns Go Pink for Breast Cancer!
West Palm Beach, Fla.– On October 26, 2017, Delray Beach will be one of three South Florida cities to host the first ever “Downtowns Go Pink” in support of Susan G. Komen South Florida® and National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Pink lights, compliments of the Delray Beach Downtown Development Authority, will adorn trees and lightpoles on Atlantic Avenue and in Pineapple Grove, and businesses throughout Downtown including The Colony Hotel, Caspian, Old School Square and the Hyatt Place will be accented with pink lighting.
Restaurants and stores are offering special discounts and items, gifts with purchase, and a portion of sales support Komen’s local life-saving breast cancer programs and research to find a cure. A sidewalk sale on the same day gives shoppers all the more reason to visit Downtown Delray Beach.

- Avalon Gallery—10% of each sale donated to Komen
