The 8th Annual Valley Goes Pink Campaign invites the lower Naugatuck Valley and surrounding communities to enjoy a variety of events featuring great food, drink and fun for a good cause throughout September and October.

The campaign kicks off Wed., Sept. 13 at 7 p.m. with “Turn the Huntington Green Pink,” a free concert featuring the Highland Rovers, as well as several vendors and food trucks at the Huntington Green in Shelton.

The Valley Goes Pink is a grassroots, community wide effort to increase awareness about breast cancer and the importance of early detection, support the Hewitt Center for Breast Wellness at Griffin Hospital, and to celebrate the charitable spirit of the region’s businesses and organizations.

The following is a list of unique Valley Goes Pink fundraising events.
