In honor of breast cancer fighters, survivors
Pam Bares, owner of Masterpiece Gifts and Floral, left, and her father, Tony Volesky, release 74 pink balloons Friday afternoon from downtown Dickinson. The balloon release was in memory of Bares' mother and Volesky's wife, Betty, who died of breast cancer Dec. 24, 2004, and for all breast cancer survivors and those who have died. Several of the balloons were attached to a pink bra with a note to let the finder know why they found a pink bra, and a request to call the family. The prevailing winds appeared to carry the balloons northeast toward Halliday.
