Richmond Hill residents and employees celebrated Think Pink Day on Friday by donning pink attire for breast cancer awareness.
Libby Hires, a media assistant at George Washington Carver Elementary School and wife of Richmond Hill City Council member Jimmy Hires, asked the city to designate Oct. 29 as Think Pink Day, which members did last week.
Libby Hires then took her request all the way to the state level. On Monday, Gov. Sonny Perdue declared Oct. 29 as Think Pink Day throughout Georgia.
