Every day people in our community are helping Twisted Pink make an impact in the fight against breast cancer. These people provide valuable donations and advocacy work along with the precious gift of time, energy and special talents. The Dace Polk Brown Ambassador Award was established in 2016 and presented to Dace Polk Brown to recognize her as a breast cancer survivor who has shown commitment and support to further the mission of Twisted Pink.
Any volunteer living in the United States is eligible for the Dace Polk Brown Ambassador Award.
Breast Cancer Survivor Award Recipient – One breast cancer survivor may be selected to receive the award annually.
Advocate Award – One community advocate may be selected to receive the award annually. This person does not have to be a breast cancer survivor.
Community Impact Award – A company or corporation may be selected to receive the award annually.
The Twisted Pink Nominations & Awards Committee will select the Dace Polk Brown Ambassador Award Recipients from the nominations submitted to Twisted Pink.
The committee considers:
• The diversity of the nominee’s impact
• What defines this nominee as an “outstanding” volunteer or advocate
