John T. Mather Memorial Hospital’s

Paint Port Pink, John T. Mather Memorial Hospital’s month-long breast cancer awareness community outreach, is expanding its reach to include more community partners in Port Jefferson and Port Jefferson Station.

New this year are two Paint Nights at Comsewogue Public Library in Port Jefferson Station and Muse Paint Bar in Port Jefferson, and new promotions by our retail community partners, some of which will raise funds for the Fortunato Breast Health Center’s Fund for Uninsured. On Wear Pink Day on Oct. 17, individuals who dress in pink will be encouraged to take selfies and post them to Facebook with the hashtag #paintportpink.

Presented by Astoria Bank, Paint Port Pink is sponsored by more than 100 community partners, including Long Island Physician Associates, LI Anesthesia Physicians, Long Island Bone and Joint, New York Cancer & Blood Specialists, Empire Bank, Local 342 Long Island Public Service Employees, STAT Health Management and Tritec Building Company.
