Heather Daly-Donofrio, a veteran LPGA golfer, will join Mayor Jim Byard, Jr. and local breast cancer survivors for a celebration of survival on Friday, October 8th at 7 a.m. The event will take place at the historical fountain at Heritage Park.

In conjunction with the Montgomery Advertiser’s River Region campaign for breast cancer awareness, the City of Prattville will “turn the fountain pink” in acknowledgment of local breast cancer survivors. Local survivors will release pink balloons as a symbol of “letting go” of the cancer, as Mayor Byard, Daly-Donofrio and others turn the water in the fountain pink.

“I am looking forward to participating in this second annual breast cancer awareness event,” said Mayor Byard. “Our inaugural event last year was a tremendous success, and I am proud that we have turned this into an annual moment of remembrance as well as celebration for all in our City who have been touched by breast cancer,” he continued.

The Montgomery Advertiser’s entire newspaper will be pink on Friday, as well. The date is also being promoted as “Wear Pink Day.” Daly- Donofrio is a 12 year LPGA veteran golfer. In 2009, she was promoted to Director of Media Relations in the LPGA Communications Department and served as president for the LPGA Tour Executive Committee in 2005.
