Sorority Invites Community to ‘Think Pink by Going Green’

Posted on October 2, 2013.

HIGH POINT, N.C., Oct. 2, 2013 – October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and the Zeta Tau Alpha sorority at High Point University is “Thinking Pink by Going Green.”

Students and community members may purchase a flower to be planted for $5 in honor of someone they know who has been affected by breast cancer, and all proceeds will benefit breast cancer awareness and education. The names of people being honored will be displayed at a “Seeds for Hope” ceremony at 6 p.m. on Oct. 7.
The flowers will be planted toward the end of the month, date and time to be determined, in the shape of a pink ribbon on the HPU campus.

The “Seeds for Hope” ceremony ends ZTA’s “Think Pink®” week which hosts a series of events and fundraisers. The ceremony will feature various speakers from the High Point community and musical guests.

To make a donation or buy a flower, visit www.zetataualpha.org/highpoint.

“When I learned the statistic that one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer, it really shook me,” says Brittany Matters, philanthropy chair. “This year, our chapter wanted to make a lasting impression upon our campus. The pink flowers – each flower representing a life that has been affected – being in the shape of a ribbon, will leave a lasting impression that this disease impacts so many and it’s important to raise awareness and find a cure.”
