Breast Cancer Awareness Month

We Will Be Pink

For the month of October WIN 98.5 will turn this web site pink for breast cancer awareness. Lakeview Ford Lincoln and WIN 98.5 encourage you to support and participate in area Breast Cancer Awareness events. Check out their black Ford F-150, wrapped in pink ribbon and graphics. Take it out for a test drive...Lakeview Ford Lincoln will do the rest! $20 dollars will be donated by Lakeview Ford for each test drive to go to the Mammography Fund at Bronson Battle Creek. And plan to attend the WIN 98.5 - Cowboy Up annual Sing For A Cure Benefit Concert where we'll be raising money for cancer research and awareness through music by local talent.
