Fighting the good fight, smiling

Comic to help rally Augusta Wednesday in battle against breast cancer

  • Follow Editorials

Fighting has never been this much fun.

For one thing, we can all unite against this indiscriminate enemy: breast cancer.

And, as appalling and atrocious as breast cancer is, we can allow ourselves a bit of fun while waging this life-and-death battle.

Such will be the spirit of the Chronicle’s 5th annual “We Think Pink” banquet Wednesday night at the downtown Marriott. The anticipated event will celebrate survivors, spread a message of hope and determination, raise money for University Health Care’s Breast Health Center – and will no doubt feature some much-needed laughs from our keynote speaker, author and comedic sensation Anita Renfroe.

The multitalented Renfroe, of Atlanta, absolutely rocketed to stardom when her YouTube video – showing her singing everything a mother says to her children in a single day to the tune of The William Tell Overture – was viewed by millions of people around the world. She quickly became a comedy contributor for Good Morning America and more.

We’ve been delighted to join in this valiant effort, and proud of the special guests we’ve brought in each year, including author Kris Carr, Georgia football first lady Barbara Dooley and NBC-TV’s Hoda Kotb. We’ve loved them all.

And we guarantee you’ll love Anita Renfroe.

Here’s a special invitation to you to have a good time fighting the good fight with us this Wednesday night.

Silent auction starts at 6 p.m., dinner at 7. Limited tickets are available at The Augusta Chronicle office, 725 Broad St., and at The Columbia County News-Times office, 4272 Washington Road, online at www. wethinkpinkinaugusta.com or by calling (706) 823-3443.
