M&T Bank Goes Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

BUFFALO, N.Y.—The top floor of M&T Bank’s 21-story headquarters in downtown Buffalo will again be basked in pink light throughout the month of October to commemorate National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The pink lights aim to be a striking visual reminder of the importance of early breast cancer detection, diagnosis and treatment.

“Breast cancer is a tragic disease that affects families, friends, coworkers and millions of Americans every day,” said Michele Trolli, Executive Vice President/Chief Information Officer. “Turning a portion of the Buffalo skyline pink is a simple way M&T can take part in raising awareness and honoring the thousands of lives that breast cancer has touched.”

The pink lights are on every evening from Tuesday, Oct.1 through Thursday, Oct. 31, 2013. In addition to pink lights, M&T Bank is also a substantial supporter of programs at Roswell Park Cancer Institute, donating more than $1.2 million over the past 10 years to help understand, prevent and cure cancer.

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a collaboration of national public service organizations, professional medical associations, and government agencies working together to promote breast cancer awareness, share information on the disease, and provide greater access to services.
