Would winning a pink Vespa help you raise awareness for Breast Cancer Awareness Month?



In addition to the ribbons, visors, golf bags, and chip clips raising awareness of National Breast Cancer Month, you may also see a few pink Vespas next month.More than a dozen organizations are offering limited edition pink Vespas to their Breast Cancer Awareness initiatives during October. In honor of its 15th annual National Breast Cancer Awareness Month campaign, "Stop Breast Cancer for Life: The Power of 15," Lifetime Network has partnered with Vespa USA to offer the scooters to various non-profits to help with their campaigns.Here is a list of events and activities that feature the limited pink Vespas:• Breast Cancer Network of Strength will host an event on October 6 at the Hard Rock Cafe in Chicago.• BreastCancer.org will host an event in Philadelphia November 14 with Fuelthecure.net. • The Breast Cancer Research Foundation's auction, which includes a pink Vespa LX 50, goes live on charitybuzz.com September 29 and ends October 22.• Bright Pink will list its pink Vespa on eBay during the month of October with eBay's Giving Works.• Cup with Love will conduct a raffle for a Vespa during October. • Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation will launch a social media contest titled "How Would You Recruit an Army of Women?" through November to help mark the one-year anniversary of theLove/Avon Army of Women campaign. • The Greater New York City Affiliate of Susan G.
