Historic City Hall’s bell tower, Jefferson Avenue Footbridge glow pink for breast cancer awareness

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Visitors to City Government Plaza or the Commercial Street Historic District might notice a pinkish hue emitting from the bell tower of Historic City Hall and the Jefferson Avenue Footbridge. The hue, achieved via multicolored LED lights and frosted windows at Historic City Hall and colored gels over the lights on the footbridge, is in observance of October’s National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, said Co-interim Director of Public Works Jonathan Gano, who facilitated the displays. “We wanted to help send a clear message to the public to take action against breast cancer,” Gano says. “Remind your mothers, sisters, wives, daughters, and any other women you love how important it is to be screened.” National Breast Cancer Awareness Month represents a partnership of national public service organizations, professional medical associations, and government agencies working together to promote breast cancer awareness, share information on the disease and provide greater access to screening services. For more information about how you can help fight the battle against breast cancer, please visit: http://www.healthfinder.gov/NHO/Octobertoolkit.aspx Pink isn’t the only color in the City’s closet, however. The bell tower and footbridge will shine with white lights signifying Springfield’s Festival of Lights in November and December, while February will bring red lights in observance of American Heart Month. On Feb. 18, the red lights will give way to purple in remembrance of Hailey Owens. In May, the bridge and tower will glow with blue lights for Autism Awareness Month, while in September, the hue will change to orange for Hunger Awareness Month. # # # For more information, please contact Jonathan Gano at 417-864-1961.
