On Wednesday, October 30th The Alabama Department of Agriculture and Industries, the Alabama Cattlemen’s Association and the Joy to Life Foundation have teamed up as October serves as both Beef Month in Alabama and Breast Cancer Awareness Month nationwide.
The three groups will hold a “Beef Up Breast Cancer Awareness” day.
Commissioner of Agriculture and Industries, John McMillan (R), will proclaim “Beef Day” at an outdoor luncheon being held from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM at the State Farmer’s Market in Montgomery.
Local breast cancer survivors have been invited to attend as honoree guests and enjoy a delicious steak sandwich prepared by members of the Alabama Cattlemen’s Association. All guests of this event are encouraged to wear pink as this color symbolizes breast cancer awareness.
Commissioner McMillan will hold a short press conference at 12:00 noon to honor the Alabama breast cancer survivors and to discuss the economic impact of Alabama’s $2.5 billion cattle industry.
