The month of October typically fills the air with the color pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The first day of October also kicks off the Real Men Wear Pink of SWLA campaign. Local men designated as ambassadors from the Lake Area wear pink each day of October and raise money for the American Cancer Society. Each dollar raised by these men goes towards the continued fight the American Cancer Society has charged itself with to save more lives from breast cancer. It also helps promote breast cancer awareness and education by encouraging early detection and even prevention.

Each year, the Pink Ambassadors hold events to raise money but come together for a night of amazing entertainment through the Lip Sync Battle. These ambassadors will don their best costumes and lip-sync their way into amazing over-the-top crowd entertainment. Each contestant will be judged and the top performers will be awarded money to go towards their campaign. There is also the coveted people's choice award that each contestant vies to win each year.

This year's Real Men Wear Pink Lip Sync Battle will be held at Crying Eagle Brewing in Lake Charles. It is totally free to attend and all ages are welcome to watch some amazing talent take the Crying Eagle stage. Show up early to get the best spot, the event will begin at 6 pm and should end around 8 pm tomorrow, Wednesday, October 26.

Since I still have your attention, hopefully. I would also like to note that although October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, it is also Metastatic Breast Cancer month AND Liver Cancer month. Every month should be every cancer awareness month. These guys and gals going through this horrible disease and sometimes the "not so popular" cancers get lost in the season. I encourage you to reach out to those affected by this stupid disease and let them know you're there for them.
