ANNAPOLIS, MD – This Wednesday, October 1, the Hogan for Governor campaign will put a spotlight on Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Domestic Violence Awareness Month, both of which are celebrated in October, by kicking off its “Women for Hogan” campaign on Lawyer’s Mall. The event will feature appearances by Larry Hogan; Hogan’s daughter Jaymi, the star of his most recent TV campaign ad; and advocates for women’s issues.
“I am looking forward to joining women of all ages on Lawyer’s Mall this Wednesday—women who are working tirelessly to put an end to two devastating diseases, breast cancer and domestic violence,” Hogan said.
Nationwide, more than 230,000 cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed this year; 4,700 of them will be in Maryland. And according to the Maryland Network Against Domestic Violence, 50 people lost their lives to domestic violence in Maryland last year.
The event will kick off on Wednesday, Oct. 1, at 4 p.m. on Lawyer’s Mall in Annapolis, just behind the State House. The event is open to the public and to the media. The campaign asks attendees to wear pink and/or purple to show their support for these two important causes.
