SWLA Men Wear Pink & CSE Credit Union Host Pink ‘Elephant Yard Sale’ In Lake Charles
The SWLA Men Wear Pink (MWP) campaign is out to make a difference again this year in the community. Using the power of 'pink,' local and national ambassadors are raising funds and awareness for breast cancer patients and research to fight the disease.
Men Wear Pink campaign ambassadors nationwide are stepping up to draw attention to the breast cancer fight. Every dollar raised helps the American Cancer Society save more lives with breakthrough breast cancer discovery and research, early detection and prevention, and lifesaving patient support.
Breast Cancer Awareness Month is October, and this year marks the 5th anniversary of CSE Federal Credit Union teaming up with the local Southwest Louisiana charity initiative to raise money that can help breast cancer patients in this region. The Lake Charles MWP Ambassador Logan Williams and CSE Federal Credit Union are joining forces to host the 'Pink Elephant Yard Sale.'

“This year I chose to join the Men Wear Pink campaign in honor of my mother who is celebrating her 10th anniversary of beating breast cancer,” He continued. “By raising money and awareness through Men Wear Pink, I'm helping to end breast cancer as we know it, for everyone.”
