Music and Film Icon, Olivia Newton-John and top NFL Wide Receiver and star of The T.O. Show (VH1), Terrell Owens have teamed up to host Pink and Blue for Two (PB42) on Saturday September 3, 2011 taking place during the inaugural Baltimore Grand Prix. A portion of the proceeds will benefit will the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre (ONJCWC), currently under construction in Melbourne, Australia as well as the Baltimore-based Cool Kids Campaign which focuses on the social, emotional and academic needs of children living with cancer.
After two very successful first events in 2010, raising much needed funds and awareness for the initiative, PB42 has joined forces with the IZOD IndyCar Series, for what will be a stellar evening of awareness, philanthropy and fun. For the PB42 team, the opportunity to bring their message to the people of Baltimore will only help in their goal of reaching across the country in the effort to link the strikingly similar statistics between breast and prostate cancers and to urge couples to remind one another to visit their Dr.’s regularly for life saving cancer screening tests.
Music and film icon, Olivia Newton-John, will be back to host her third PB42 event and will treat the night’s guests to a couple of her classic songs. As a breast cancer “thriver”, Newton-John has passion for the PB42 cancer awareness campaign that was founded by her nephew and former professional racecar driver, Emerson Newton-John.
Terrell Owens, will be joining Olivia to co-host his first PB42 event and help bring awareness to how important it is to help lower the rate of breast and prostate cancer diagnosis through early detection. “I am honored to be asked by Olivia to join her in co-hosting such an important event and am committed to bringing awareness to how important early detection is in our fight against cancer,” says Terrell Owens.
Numerous celebrity guests will be on hand to show their support, and will range from the Hollywood, sporting, motorsport, and political worlds. Notably, legendary racecar driver A.J. Foyt will be in attendance to show his support of the initiative and the PB42 team. On the musical side of things, local Baltimore favorites and acclaimed musicians, the Kelly Bell Band, will keep the crowd entertained with their impressive blend of blues, hip-hop and funk.
