State Representative Kim Rose of the 118th recently praised the legislature’s Women’s Caucus on raising over $2000 during a “Dress Down” day at the Capitol in Hartford, Connecticut. Rose, a co-chair of the Women’s Caucus, released a press release on her website which announced the group’s effort and success.
From the press release;
During Friday’s legislative House session, the Women’s Caucus sponsored a building-wide “dress down” day to raise money for the American Lung Association’s Lung Force Campaign and the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation. Legislators, staff, lobbyists and guests at the State Capitol were encouraged to show their support by wearing turquoise in solidarity with the American Lung Association and purple for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation and were able to donate $5 to “dress down” and $10 to “dress up” with all proceeds being split evenly between the two charities.
Lung cancer is the No. 1 cancer killer of women in the United States.
“One of the things I love about my job in the legislature is the unique opportunity we have to make a difference,” Rep. Rose said. “I thank all my colleagues and supporters for their kind donations and for joining our mission to raise awareness on these illnesses.”
