Party with a Purpose
Local breast cancer survivors participated in the event by walking a pink runway and showing off the latest fashions from nearby retailers. Connecticut stylists pitched in by doing hair and makeup for the models. Even local fire fighters got involved, wearing their dress blues with pink bow ties and escorting the models to the applause of family members, friends, and supporters.

Gale Toyota displayed a pair of 2016 Scions—an iA and iM—each wrapped in “breast awareness pink,” Partygoers were invited to sign the vehicles and both cars were soon covered in signatures, positive thoughts and other well-wishes.
Sales Manager Dominic DiBella explained the importance of the cause saying, “It was important to sponsor this event because breast cancer has touched our entire family, including our workforce and customers at our dealership.”
