Breast Cancer Warriors Banner Program
The Downtown Somerville Alliance (DSA) recently announced their partnership with Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital (RWJUH) Somerset’s Steeplechase Cancer Center to launch the Breast Cancer Warriors Banner Program. A program to recognize breast cancer survivors and honor the memory of those who have lost their battle with the disease during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
It is a biennial program that entails creating a series of commemorative vinyl banners to be displayed on the decorative light poles along Main St. in downtown Somerville.
The banners will be on display during the month of October for two consecutive years. They will be made of high-quality, durable vinyl designed to withstand the elements and will be produced by SpeedPro of Piscataway. They are projected to measure 18 inches wide by 48 inches long.
To recognize a loved one and participate in the program, fill out the application at https://bit.ly/3AOPFg2.
There will be a $250 tax-deductible fee for each banner that will guarantee placement for the entire month of October, in 2021 and 2022. The fee is payable via Square - linked in the application, or in person via cash or check at the DSA office, located at 50 Division St. Ste 501, Somerville, NJ 08876.
Space is currently limited to 30 banners and will be sold on a first come-first served basis. Banner sales will take place from August 16 – September 6, 2021.
Although placement of the banners is guaranteed for two years, participants will be given the ability to opt out of the program after the first year. The banner fee is nonrefundable.
Proceeds from the program will benefit the Steeplechase Cancer Center at RWJUH Somerset via the DSA and Somerset Health Care Foundation.
The DSA is a recognized tax-exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code
