To honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the MD Anderson regional care centers in Sugar Land and Katy will host free, family-friendly events at community venues well known for their great shops and restaurants.

The teams from both regional care centers will be on hand at the events to hand out free pink glow necklaces and other giveaways, greet visitors and answer questions about breast cancer and MD Anderson in the community.

In Sugar Land, the Plaza and fountain in Sugar Land Town Square will be awash in soft pink light while the Fort Bend Symphony Orchestra performs a free concert. In the spirit of the evening, the musicians will wear pink and dedicate a special piece of music to honor survivors, patients, caregivers, family members and those who have been lost to breast cancer.

Out west, MD Anderson's Regional Care Center at Katy will light Heritage Square in LaCenterra at Cinco Ranch pink. Austin singer and songwriter Bekah Kelso will give a free performance of her "folk-hop gypsy" music, with the stage and seating area aglow in soft pink.

The events each start about 7:00 p.m., so bring your lawn chairs or blanket to listen to some great live music and then meet the teams from the regional care centers.

MD Anderson's two other regional care centers in Bay Area and The Woodlands will have their pink lighting events later in October. Watch Cancerwise for more information on the events or become a fan of any or all of the Facebook pages for the regional care centers in Bay Area, The Woodlands, Katy or Sugar Land.
