Strength in Numbers: Pink Jam's "Thousand Words"

What an inspiring night. 100 spectacular photos of people in our community… survivors, fighters, lovers, performers. All with words in hand  ready to send breast cancer a message.

The exhibit at the Atlas Performing Arts Center was presented by Pink Jams and Shoot for Change. Titled “A Thousand Words” the exhibit brought together brave faces of those who’ve been touched by breast cancer.

Hats off to Pink Jams’ Christa Floresca and Shoot for Change’s Walter Grio. The dynamic duo proved we can all think pink through the power of black and white.

Check out some of our friends featured in the exhibit below. We caught up with Kate Marie Grinold, Ashley Estill, Nadine & Bryan Namoff, Jennifer Harlow, Friends of CBCC and Lynda Erkiletian.. who was so kind to give this mommy’s arms a short break 😉
