Fundraiser for Picasso Pizza bartender rescheduled

A fundraiser for a Picasso Pizza bartender participating in a breast cancer awareness walk was rescheduled due to Sunday's rain. The new date is Sunday, Oct. 10.

The event will be held 6-10 p.m. at Picasso Pizza, 1020 Broadway.

Bartender Leslie Cox will participate in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure. The October walk in Atlanta covers 60 miles over three days and raises money for breast cancer research, education, screening and treatment.

“It’s such a great cause, whether you know anyone that’s struggled with breast cancer or not,” said Cox, 26.

It’s her first time doing the walk, which is held in multiple locations and annually attracts thousands of participants.

Each walker must raise $2,300 in donations. Cox is trying to raise $2,500.
