If you're new to the Tri-Cities you'll notice that beginning tonight and for the entire month of September the Cable Bridge will be lit in teal colored lights...but do you know why?

September is Ovarian Cancer awareness month and to bring 'Light' to this devastating illness that claims the lives of 14,000 Women each year the bridge will be lit in Teal lights for the whole month.

The 2018 bridge lighting will take place tonight, Thursday, August 30 from 7:00 PM on the deck of the Clover Island Inn. The bridge lighting will be at dusk and the community is invited to attend.

The event is hosted and sponsored by the Tri-Cities Cancer Center, in partnership with the Ovary Achievers support group.
