The Pink Patch Project is getting a helping hand from the Manhattan Beach Police Department during October, National Breast Cancer Awareness month.

On Wednesday, Oct. 9, MBPD is partnering with California Pizza Kitchen in Manhattan Bech to raise funds for MBPD’s Records Technician Teri Gaitan, who is fighting cancer and has been with MBPD for 29 years. From 11 a.m.-10 p.m., CPK will donate 20% of dine-in and take-out orders at CPK in Manhattan Beach to Gaitan when you bring in the flyer attached to this article.

The Pink Patch Project is a campaign that helps bring attention and public awareness to those who have fought or are fighting breast cancer. The campaign also supports breast cancer research organizations.

These items are available at the MBPD Parking and Animal Control desk, Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-4 p..m. Purchases can also be made by e-mailing Officer Christopher Ineguez. See the attached PDF flyer to see the Pink Patch merchandise.
