NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that Allegheny County Council does hereby recognize the American Cancer Society and the 2019 Real Men Wear Pink of Pittsburgh candidates for helping create a world free from the pain and suffering of breast cancer;

 

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto caused the Seal of the County of Allegheny to be affixed this 8th day of October 2019.
