Local News

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Volunteers with the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer turned the town pink on Friday.

The fundraising campaign coincided with a proclamation by Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry, declaring Oct. 1, 2021, as Turn the Town Pink Day in the city of Fort Wayne.

Pink ribbons will hang throughout the city through the month of October. Each one represents a donation made in honor or memory of a loved one.

There’s still time to get ribbons for your home or business. A packet of five costs $25 – you can order them here. Donations support the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer.
