The Riverhead Project hosted a blue carpet event prior to the Oscars Sunday, serving as a kickoff to Peconic Bay Medical Center’s Go Blue campaign in support of Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month.
PBMC Health is teaming up with the Cancer Services Program of Suffolk County and the American Cancer Society to promote a month-long campaign to raise awareness of the importance of colon cancer screening and early detection in hopes of stalling the nation’s second-leading cause of cancer-related death.
The Riverhead Project helped kick off the awareness program with an Oscar viewing celebration.
Visitors could sip on a refreshing blue cocktail, served in a matching blue glass appropriately named “Bottoms Up.” The drink will also be offered at the Suffolk Theater, Bistro 72 at Hotel Indigo throughout the month. All proceeds from the cocktail will be donated to the Cancer Service Program, Mr. McDermott said.
Spectators were urged to dress up in red carpet attire for the party Sunday and walk the blue carpet leading into the restaurant. Here are some more photos from the blu carpet.
