October 30th will serve as a day to "Beef Up Breast Cancer Awareness" as Commissioner of Agriculture and Industries, John McMillan, proclaims "Beef Day" at an outdoor luncheon being held from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM at the State Farmer's Market in Montgomery.  The Alabama Department of Agriculture and Industries, Alabama Cattlemen's Association and the Joy to Life Foundation have teamed up as October serves as both Beef Month in Alabama and Breast Cancer Awareness Month nationwide. 

At this event, local breast cancer survivors have been invited to attend as honoree guests and enjoy a delicious steak sandwich prepared by members of the Alabama Cattlemen's Association.  All guests of this event are encouraged to wear pink as this color symbolizes breast cancer awareness.

We invite you to attend this event as Commissioner McMillan will hold a short press conference at 12:00 noon to honor breast cancer survivors and discuss the economic impact of Alabama's $2.5 billion cattle industry.  As a member of the media, you will enjoy a complimentary steak sandwich lunch provided by the hardworking cattlemen in Alabama. 

For more information on this event, please contact Erin Beasley at the Alabama Cattlemen's Association, ebeasley@bamabeef.org.
