ITEM K-4) CONSENT AGENDA RESOLUTION Pink Week Events   18605 NW 27th Avenue    Miami Gardens, Florida 33056    Since its inception more than 27 years ago, NBCAM has been at the forefront of promoting awareness of breast cancer issues and has evolved along with the national dialogue on breast cancer. NBCAM and Councilwoman Felicia Robinson recognize that although many great strides have been made in breast cancer awareness and treatment, there remains much to be accomplished. Both remain dedicated to educating and empowering women and men to take charge of their won breast health. In recognition of October as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Councilwoman Robinson recommends that the City implement a Miami Gardens “Pink Week” event. The theme for this year’s Pink Week Events will be “Paint the City Pink.” The cost associated with implementing Miami Gardens “Pink” event is expected to not exceed $ 5,000.00, as sponsors will be secured. Proposed Action:  Councilwoman Felicia Robinson recommends that the Council adopt this resolution recognizing October 2014, as Breast Cancer Awareness Month in the City of Miami Gardens, and to implement Miami Gardens “Pink” Event.
