MEDIA ADVISORY - GEORGE WASHINGTON BRIDGE NECKLACE LIGHTS TO GLOW PINK TO COMMEMORATE BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH

Date: Oct 01, 2018
Press Release Number: 150-2018

The George Washington Bridge’s Southside will glow in pink tonight to commemorate Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Introduced to heighten awareness of the disease, and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention and cure, the color pink has become a symbol of solidarity for the Breast Cancer Awareness movement. This is the 11th year the bridge has participated with pink lighting.

The LED necklace lights on the George Washington Bridge will shine pink throughout the month of October. Port Authority crews will change the light coloring gels during routine maintenance to the bridge’s LED fixtures.

Media interested in filming the necklace lighting can do so at Fort Lee Historic Park, off Hudson Terrace just south of the bridge in New Jersey.
