On Thursday, November 5, 2015 at 9 A.M., Irwindale Police Chief Anthony Miranda will be presenting representatives from City of Hope a check in the amount of $20,000. The donation was the result of the money raised through the department’s Breast Cancer Awareness fundraiser, the #PinkPatchProject.

The #PinkPatchProject began in July as an innovative public awareness campaign that was initiated by the men and women of the Irwindale Police Department designed to bring attention to the fight against breast cancer and to support City of Hope in combating this disease. The pink patches were intended to stimulate conversation with the community and to encourage public awareness on the early detection and fight against the disease.

During the month of October, Irwindale police officers wore the pink patches on their uniforms during “Breast Cancer Awareness Month”. Members of Irwindale P.D. sold the pink patches for $10 and tee-shirts for $15 dollars. The initial goal was to raise $10,000 and to have the proceeds donated to the City of Hope.

“The response from the community was overwhelming. We surpassed our initial goal of $10,000 and continued receiving donations from members of the community, ultimately reaching double the amount we aimed for.” said Sgt. George Zendejas

The public and members of the community are invited to attend our press conference this Thursday, November 5 at 9 A.M. on the Irwindale Police Department front lawn. The presentation is expected to last 30 minutes.
