#PaintBuffaloPink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month
We want to #PaintBuffaloPink! October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and in honor of all those who have been impacted in our community and to increase awareness this October we want YOU to send us a photo of how you #PaintBuffaloPink @937WBLK
Snap a photo of yourself wearing pink, of your dog dressed with a pink bow in honor of breast cancer, the cupcakes you make, your died hair or sneakers, your sign or your car -- anything that is pink!
Take a picture and #PaintBuffaloPink on Twitter then check back here to see photos and see how Western New York is honoring Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
