Breast cancer survivors, Dupont Hospital CEO Chad Towner,Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer volunteers and other special guests will be on hand to receive an official proclamation from Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry.
In addition to placing pink ribbons adorned with the names of honorees all around town, numerous activities will take place throughout the month leading up to the 19th annual Vera Bradley Classic Women’s Golf and Tennis Tournament that takes place Friday, June 1, through Monday, June 4.
