Paint Jenks Pink scheduled for Friday
On Oct. 18, the City of Jenks is going to Paint Jenks Pink.
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month and Oct. 18 being National Wear Pink Day, the City of Jenks staff, including Aquarium, Firefighters, Police, Public Works, and City Hall, are wearing an item of pink clothing on Oct. 18 to raise awareness and show support all around Jenks.
The city would like all Jenks businesses, schools, and citizens to Paint Jenks Pink so all of Jenks is pink on Oct. 18.
The city encourages the public to post pictures to social media using the dedicated hashtag #PaintJenksPink. Those that do this will be entered into a drawing for tickets to the Oklahoma Aquarium. Citizens may also email pictures to email@example.com with the subject line #painjenkspink. Every picture submitted or tagged on social media counts as one entry.
The city encourages as many submissions as possible.
Pictures must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. on Oct. 18. Drawing will take place Oct. 21. Winners will be notified through their social media or by email.
The Jenks Police Department will also be handing out 100 Pink Jenks PD t-shirts to the first 100 people who come by the Jenks Police Department on Wednesday Oct. 16 between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. to encourage everyone to have something pink to wear on Oct. 18.
