Familiar faces are raising money during Breast Cancer Awareness Month in a virtual Real Men Wear Pink South Palm Beach County.

“My mother Adele is a breast cancer survivor. But we lost our best friend close to 20 years ago. She missed her daughter’s wedding,” said Real Men Wear Pink chair, Capitol Lighting chairman Ken Lebersfeld. “My mother had great treatment and she’s been in remission for 30 years. If my friend got sick today, there’s an excellent chance she would still be here.”

This is Lebersfeld’s third year raising money for breast cancer research this way. Palm Beach County Vice Mayor Robert Weinroth is honorary chair and 16 men have signed on as ambassadors. Among them are Samir Changela, Potions in Motion’s owner Jason Savino and NCCI and Beach & Park District Commissioner Craig Ehrnst. See the rest of the men below.

The ambassadors agreed to wear pink all month and fund raise through their social network. “They’ve asked us each to raise at least $2,500. I just had another donation that will put me over the top,” Lebersfeld said. “Cancer doesn’t stop and neither will we. Cancer doesn’t care about Covid.”

“Real Men Wear Pink is an online campaign to support women battling breast cancer and raise money for research,” said Linda Spielmann, philanthropy director for the American Cancer Society Southeast Region.

Last year’s national Real Men Wear Pink campaign raised $9 million. Here’s the link and how to donate through Dec. 31. https://secure.acsevents.org/site/TR/RMWP/RMWPCY20SER?pg=entry&fr_id=97778
