Turn the Town Teal - KOH
The Kaleidoscope of Hope Foundation (KOH) has a campaign called Turn the Town Teal (TTTT). In September , volunteers tie teal ribbons around trees on the main streets of towns throughout northern and central NJ to raise awareness of Ovarian cancer. The towns where the ribbons are hung will also proclaim September as Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. Last year, with the help of my husband and the Lopez family, we was able to hang ribbons in Edison. We placed them on trees around the municipal building and on Amboy Avenue. Mayor Choi held a press conference to present Lois Myers , founder of KOH with the proclamation. I also helped hang ribbons in Woodbridge and at the Cancer Institute of NJ.
This year KOH is kicking off the TTTT campaign on May 12,2008 at a cocktail party at the Carol G Simon Cancer Center at Morristown Memorial Hospital . The festivities will take place at the Rooke Family Plaza from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. Congressman Rodney Frelinghuysen ,a supporter of the mission of KOH will speak at 6pm.
