The Oakland Business Improvement District and the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership with sponsorship from Dollar Bank, have joined forces to raise funds for Susan G. Komen Pittsburgh by simultaneously hosting Drink for Pink events on Thursday, February 25, 2015 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. Each location is free and open to the public and will include Pittsburgh celebrity bartenders, a unique twist on the Drink for Pink theme. All proceeds benefit Susan G. Komen Pittsburgh.
Last year, Dollar Bank hosted our Drink for Pink Afterparty to celebrate the success of the Drink for Pink event held on February 25, 2015, and to finalize the total amount we raised for Susan G. Komen Pittsburgh. Georgia Petropoulos of OBID, Jim McQuade of Dollar Bank, Candice Gonzalez of the South Side Chamber of Commerce, and Jeremy Waldrup of The Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership were happy to present a check for $7,105 to Kathy Purcell, CEO of Susan G. Komen Pittsburgh. The money was raised in donations and drink sales from Oakland, Downtown and Southside bars for the event.
