‘Pink’ voting extended
Posted: Wednesday, October 24, 2012 4:08 pm
The deadline has been extended a week to Nov. 2 at midnight to go online to vote for entries in the annual Pink Glove Dance video competition, a nationwide music video contest to help in the fight against breast cancer.
Locally, Baptist Memorial Hospital-Union City and the Obion County Emergency Communications District (E911) both have entries in the contest.
Entries may be viewed and votes can be cast at the website www.pinkglovedance.com. Voters must have a Facebook account in order to vote.
Both local entries have designated Hometown Walk of Hope as their charity in the event they win prize money in the competition — which includes $10,000 for the first-place video, $5,000 for second place and $2,000 for third place.
The Pink Glove Dance competition is sponsored by Medline Industries, which produced the original Pink Glove Dance video three years ago to raise breast cancer awareness. Over 260 organizations entered this year’s contest.
