A THEMED pink Camaro, at right, is already catching the eye of Cleveland and Bradley County residents who are flocking over to Don Ledford Automotive Center to view the official NASCAR Sprint pace car that rolled into town over the weekend in support of Volley for a Cure 2013. On Monday, a pair of costumed Flamingo Flockers — Brittany Breese and Kristi Muhonen — posed with the brightly colored “pinkster on wheels” for the camera lens of Kyle B. Johnson. The Flamingo Flock, a lighthearted, fourth-year tradition whose fundraising supports VFAC, will continue through Thursday night. The flockers are a team of volunteers, mostly from Doctors Express, who support VFAC and breast cancer awareness during the month of October. The Breast Cancer Survivors Luncheon is also scheduled for Thursday, beginning at 11:30 a.m. in the Lee University Rec Center. Keynote speaker will be Vonda Skelton, a popular author and Christian speaker. Her appearance is being sponsored by Cleveland businesswoman Brenda Lawson. Reserved parking for the luncheon is being made available in three parking lots on the Lee campus. VFAC’s annual “Pink Day” of activities on Friday in the Paul Dana Walker Arena begins at 5 p.m. and will close with the 7 p.m. volleyball game between the Lee University Lady Flames and Valdosta State University. VFAC supports college scholarships through the MaryEllen Locher Foundation. A scholarship will be presented to a local student between the second and third games of the volleyball contest between the Gulf South Conference rivals.
