Kosten Foundation Announces Local Efforts for Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month

Organizations and Individuals Throughout the Mid-South Join Together to Raise Awareness of Pancreatic Cancer in November

Memphis, Tenn., November 8, 2018 – The Kosten Foundation is bringing awareness to one of the most deadly forms of cancer during Pancreatic Cancer Awareness month again this November with various initiatives and events, including their annual symposium lecture, a Tribute at Twilight event, purple lighting of public and private structures, purple items at local businesses, and Purple PANCakes for Pancreatic Cancer Awareness at Strano by Chef Josh. All donations to the Kosten Foundation in November will also be matched by Susan and Alan Kosten. Donations can be made online at www.kostenfoundation.com.

The Memphis community is once again turning the city purple, the color for pancreatic cancer awareness, this November. The public is invited to participate and celebrate all month long and especially on World Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Day Thursday, November 15, by wearing purple or lighting up their residence and/or office purple. Those that would like to show support with a yard sign can contact the Kosten Foundation to arrange to pick-up an all-new yard sign. Memphis Botanic Gardens, AutoZone Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium and Children’s Museum of Memphis will light purple, Memphis and Shelby Farms will display information about the Kosten Foundation and pancreatic cancer in their lobbies, and Lisa’s Lunchbox and Staks Kitchen are adding special messaging to every take-out order throughout the month, and more! The public is invited to share photos of their purple efforts online and use the hashtags #PurpleForKosten and #WPCD.

“We wanted to make November in Memphis and Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month something that will change the way we think about philanthropy and community service for generations to come,” said Alan Kosten, Chairman of the Herb Kosten Pancreatic Cancer Charitable Fund. “We feel humbled and honored by our community’s support in bringing awareness to this deadly form of cancer.”
