Did This: Deadly in Pink

About 200 supporters of the Coalition for a Tobacco Free Hawaii gathered at the Japanese Cultural Center yesterday for the organization’s second annual fundraiser, “Deadly in Pink.” The event, a champagne brunch, is aimed at raising awareness of the tobacco industry’s marketing strategies to reach women and girls.

Aside from the issue at hand, the fundraiser is a lighthearted party with activities for attendees, including a silent auction, a nail bar, massages, face painting, Zumba, and more. And, although the focus of the theme is women, a few men do attend — and have a good time.
