Pink Pages is Sponsoring Dining Out for Life
Posted on March 18, 2010 by David Cohen.

We are proud to announce our partnership with the 17th Annual Dining Out for Life on Thursday, April 29, 2010!

This year’s Dining Out for Life event will mark the culmination of our new citywide fundraising campaign, Dining Out for Life: City of Big Shoulders! This campaign, inspired by Carl Sandburg’s poem ‘Chicago’, will utilize the idea of shoulders as symbols of support. It will feature a range of photographs with groups of people in fun, supportive poses. The new campaign represents Chicago’s incredible diversity, and is sure to attract more volunteers and diners to the event than ever before!

As part of our commitment to the community PINK  is going to announce next week where we are going to host this year and why.

PINK will be giving away many Prizes, so stay tune as we promised you will  not be disappointed…
