The Tulsa County legal community, including members of the judiciary, are thinking pink in order to raise awareness of breast cancer.
Some Tulsa County judges are sporting pink robes this week, and the legal community is partnering with Panera Bread and Oklahoma Project Woman in activities in October, which is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
The Bench and Bar Committee of the Tulsa County Bar Association will host "Think Pink" for breast cancer awareness at the Tulsa County Courthouse from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Friday.
Booths in the courthouse will offer free Panera bagels for people wearing something pink, information, literature and volunteers to answer questions about breast cancer, symptoms, signs, diagnostics and testing.
Information will be available regarding local services, and donations will be accepted that will benefit Oklahoma Project Woman.
A display will be set up for participants to post pictures of people they have known who had or continue to have breast cancer.
A rally that will begin outside the courthouse about 8 a.m. Friday will feature pink vehicles and horses clad in pink.
In addition to providing free bagels at the courthouse Friday, Panera will be offering its Pink Ribbon Bagels for sale throughout this month at Tulsa-area locations.
