Venetian Brings Awareness to National Mammography Day

Today The Venetian and The Palazzo turn pink

You may have noticed a color change on the strip as of late, specifically The Venetian Resort. Well, you aren’t imagining things, the colors, well, they are a changin’. And, they are changing for a good reason. 

Today, October 15, you will see the towers of The Venetian and The Palazzo turn pink. The color is in honor of National Mammography Day. Traditionally, the day is held on the third Friday of October.

While today is National Mammography Day, the entire month is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and is an annual campaign that brings attention to the disease. 

And getting attention on the deadly disease is helping. According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, deaths from breast cancer have declined 40% from 1989 to 2016. The reason is attributed solely to early detection.

Other colors you may have noticed recently have also been in honor of varying awareness days. While most in Vegas would love to see more green (as in money) in their lives, the Venetian was turned green in honor of World Mental Health Day on October 10. The colors of the Pride flag were shown on the following day, October 11 in honor of National Coming Out Day. 

And, later this month on October 21, the towers will be purple. That is to recognize Domestic Violence Awareness Month, also observed in October.
