AVENTURA, Fla., Oct. 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Smokey Bones Bar & Fire Grill President & CEO, James O'Reilly, will be adding pink to his wardrobe as he joins community leaders nationwide in American Cancer Society's Real Men Wear Pink campaign. Throughout the month of October, O'Reilly will wear pink, help raise awareness through his social media networks and raise a minimum of $2,500 to help the American Cancer Society fight breast cancer.
"American Cancer Society's Real Men Wear Pink initiative is more than wearing the color pink. It's about supporting the organization's mission to save lives – both men and women – from breast cancer," said O'Reilly. "I'm honored to be participating in this important movement again, and doing my part to help raise awareness and funds needed to fight breast cancer."
This is the second year O'Reilly has participated in Real Mean Wear Pink. Prior to being named President & CEO of Smokey Bones Fire & Grill, O'Reilly served as the CEO of Long John Silver's for four years in Louisville, KY. He actively engaged with the American Cancer Society and was part of the Louisville Real Men Wear Pink initiative.
To get involved and help support O'Reilly and American Cancer Society's Real Men Wear Pink campaign, visit his personal donation page. Donors can also track his progress on the Real Men Wear Pink National Leaderboard. Money raised by O'Reilly will go directly to the American Cancer Society to help fund lifesaving breast cancer research studies, crucial patient care programs, and education and prevention initiatives that have helped thousands of people across the globe.
