Pier Village Goes Pink for breast cancer awareness in October 2013.


Pier Village and Susan G. Komen For The Cure of Central and South Jersey join forces once again this year for the second annual Pier Village Goes Pink for breast cancer awareness in October 2013.  Pier Village is a year-round community with 30 unique shops, restaurants and 530 luxury rental and condominium homes located along the oceanfront in Long Branch, NJ.

All month long, Pier Village will host events and promotions to help raise funds for a cure for breast cancer.  The mixed-use community will be participating in a Pinkest Balcony & Window contest that will be judged at the end of October.  Professional pink uplighting will be installed throughout the site via the generous donation of A & S Sound in Long Branch, NJ.  Pier Village retail shops and restaurants will have individual promotions throughout the month to celebrate and share their support.

Village Spa Nails & Hair, along with Monmouth Medical Center, will be hosting a Life & Health Makeover for two women who are recently recovered from their own personal journey through breast cancer.  It is the goal of Village Spa Hair & Nails to celebrate the beauty in us all, and to encourage women within the process to feel special and pampered.
