Local residents will notice at 6:12 p.m. tonight, when the south bridge that connects The Island to West Palm Beach will be painted in Komen pink by as many as 500 lights!
I’m told it’s the first time ever that that the historic bridge at the end of Okeechobee Boulevard will be lit up in a color other than blue! Residents can watch the lighting with notables, including Brinker and Palm Beach Mayor Gail Coniglio at the Chapel-by-the-Sea, on the west side of the bridge.
Y-100 radio jock and TV personality Michael Yo, an occasional Chelsea Handler sidekick on E!’s Chelsea Lately, will emcee. Governor Rick Scott and U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson and, of course, The Donald, are expected to partake.
Since its birth, the non-profit named after Brinker’s sister, a victim of the disease, may have raised more than $1.5 billion then re-invested most of it into finding a cure. It’s also known for having convinced Major League Baseball and National Football League players and coaches to wear pink during some games.
Check back with Gossip Extra on Sunday for all the photos of the gala!
