Steam Plant glows pink for Race for the Cure | Business
Spokane is gearing up to Race for the Cure on Sunday, and this week a Spokane landmark is acting as a visual cheerleader for those racing. The smoke stacks of The Steam Plant Grill are glowing pink every night to remind people about Sunday’s important race and fundraiser.
“Our theme for the race is ‘make an impact’, and lighting one of Spokane’s most notable landmarks pink makes a huge impact in awareness for our mission to save lives and end breast cancer forever,” said Claudia Bell, Executive Director of Susan G. Komen Eastern Washington.
The pink smoke stacks are thanks to a partnership between The Pink Tie Guys, Washington Trust Bank, AMP’D Entertainment and The Steam Plant.
“We’re excited about the opportunity to support, in a very visual way, the mission of the Susan G. Komen Foundation,” stated Tim Denniston, general manager of Stacks restaurant and Steam Plant Brewing Co. “We’re always looking for ways that this iconic building can help bring awareness to the important work being done by organizations right here in our community.”
In addition to The Steam Plant, the Spokane County Courthouse is also displaying pink lights in support of breast cancer awareness and the Race for the Cure on Sunday. Thanks to Rockwood Clinic for providing a great photo of The Steam Plant's bright, pink lights of hope.
