Pigeon Forge, Tenn. - This year, Titanic’s iconic, marching pink flamingos and giant, ship-mounted, 15 ft. pink ribbon will be joined by a crop of real pink pumpkins in calling attention to the 2019 Breast Cancer Awareness Month campaign action at the Titanic Museum Attraction, announces Mary Kellogg, President, COO & Co-Owner of Titanic Pigeon Forge.
In addition to being the colorful, feathered mascots of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Hot Pink Flamingos you’ll see parading the grassy knoll in front of Titanic Pigeon Forge will also serve as honor guards for 44 people who survived Titanic but were later claimed by cancer – six were victims of breast cancer. When you visit the Museum Attraction you’ll find each flamingo tagged with the name of a Titanic cancer victim.
“This marks our 4th year of active participation in the International Breast Cancer Awareness Month campaigns,”say Kellogg-Joslyn.
“Since that time there has been progress in the good fight against this terrible disease but a cure remains elusive. The National Breast Cancer Foundation reports that this year alone, a woman is diagnosed with the disease every 2 minutes.
Now, that’s a scary thought. So, until this scourge of human health is wiped out, it’s important to remember that the best protection is early detection. That’s the message all of us involved in this campaign are promoting,”explains Kellogg.
“So why pink pumpkins? I see them as down-to-earth symbols of hope that fit perfectly into our Pink Days’ salute to cancer awareness, education and research.These pumpkins are real… grown especially for us for display only at Titanic Museum. When you think how orange pumpkins have helped make Dollywood’s Harvest Festival Great Pumpkin LumiNights a smashing success…extraordinarily rare pink ones just might help make this year’s Cancer Awareness a big winner, too,”says Kellogg-Joslyn.
The Titanic Museum Attraction opens daily at 9 a.m. Reservations are strongly suggested.
Tickets are available online at www.titanicpigeonforge.com or by phone at 800-381-7670.
