Meet Komen’s Big Wigs

     According to Susan G. Komen South Florida, a Big Wig is “a very important person on a mission to end breast cancer forever by raising awareness and funds in their community; willing to have fun while wearing a ridiculous pink wig.”

     Seven local men (pictured below) did just that on October 14, when they gathered at Saks Fifth Avenue Palm Beach for a lively Key to the Cure party and fundraiser. Good sports all, they donned pink wigs styled to suit their personalities–from Marilyn Monroe tousles to big bouffants to hipster braids–and decorated windows at Saks in support of Susan G. Komen and the battle to end breast cancer.

     Below are the heartfelt quotes, written by each of the Big Wigs, that graced Saks Fifth Avenue Palm Beach’s windows:


My mother was a breast cancer survivor. I couldn’t begin to imagine growing up without a mother. It’s my pleasure to raise funds for a great organization like Susan G. Komen.   – Mo Foster, iHeartMedia  


We are in a war and the enemy doesn’t discriminate. It is a battle ground that must be obliterated by any means possible.  Unfortunately, it takes the efforts of more than one person and the capital of many to fight this war. I am proud to be a warrior in this fight. –  Michael Solomon, Best-Selling Author/National Speaker


There is no one I know who can say they don’t have a friend or relative that has battled this terrible disease. Hopefully we will find a cure and someday eradicate this disease. Get Your Pink On… Together We Can Make a Difference. – Howard L. Wander, Kelley Kronenberg Attorneys At Law


The love of my life has successfully beaten breast cancer. I want to do everything I can so that the loves of your life will not be affected by this disease. – Marty List, The List Companies


If wearing a BIG PINK WIG brings attention to the local lives that Susan G. omen saves every year, then I’m just a BIG PINK WIG-WEARING GUY! Carlos J. Berrocal, Jones, Foster, Johnston & Stubbs, P.A. Attorneys & Counselors


Raising money for breast cancer research and being part of something that makes a difference and saves lives is why I am involved. Not for the recognition. – Rocco Mangel , Rocco’s Tacos & Tequila Bar
