You may have noticed your local firefighters wearing pink uniform shirts the entire month of October and asked yourself, "What are they doing"? The members of the Lodi Fire Department took part in our second annual "Go Pink" campaign and wore the pink shirts in support of those who have breast cancer and the survivors that beat it. During the month of October, we sold pink T-shirts and accepted cash donations in an effort to raise funds for breast cancer awareness, research and treatment.

Thanks to the generosity of our community, we were able to raise $3,000 that will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. We are fortunate to have such great support in the city of Lodi, and we thank each and every one of you for helping us exceed our fundraising goal.

A very special thank-you is in order for two companies who partnered with us, and by virtue allowed us to substantially increase the amount of money we raised: Embroidery Works of Lodi and Chili's Grill and Bar. Both businesses went over and above in supporting our efforts, and we are extremely appreciative.

On behalf of the firefighters that so proudly serve you, I say thank you.

Brad Doell

President
