Charlene’s Light…a Foundation for Ovarian Cancer, has partnered with the City of Duluth to light both the iconic Aerial Lift Bridge and Enger Tower teal for two nights, September 12 and 13.

Kristine Greer, Executive Director, and Ovarian Cancer survivor, said the lighting is unprecedented. “Our hope is that by lighting these two Duluth landmarks teal, we will raise awareness of this silent and often deadly cancer,” said Greer, who was born and raised in Duluth.

“We’ve planned three exciting event-filled days where the goal is to educate, as well as raise funds for research,” Greer said.

All proceeds will remain in Minnesota and go to Ovarian Cancer education, research and patient support. In addition to the lighting, the Foundation has a full weekend of activities planned.

Friday, September 12th: Buffalo Wild Wings will donate 10% of their proceeds from 5-10pm to Charlene's Light.

Also, there will be a bridge lighting ceremony and a special memorial tribute to Elizabeth Busche, JoAnn Martin, and Diana Lucas. Both the bridge and Enger will be lit.

Saturday, September 13th: Dinner, wine auction, and music at the DECC. The event starts at 6pm. Renee Passal will be emceeing.

Sunday, September 14th: Elizabeth Busche Memorial Golf Tournament at Enger. 18 holes. Shotgun start at 11am.
