Stony Brook Medicine needs your vote to help raise funds supporting breast cancer research.

For the third year in a row, the teaching hospital has entered a video featuring hospital and school officials into the Pink Glove video competition sponsored by MedLine Industries Inc.

“The Pink Glove Dance rallied the entire Stony Brook community around breast cancer awareness and research. We want to win to honor all those affected by breast cancer and need your daily vote to do it.” said Linda Bily, cancer patient advocacy and community outreach coordinator for the Stony Brook University Cancer Center, who coordinated production of the video. “We danced the dance, and now it’s time to rock the vote.”

A prize of $25,000 will be donated to the winner’s selected charity helping to fund breast cancer research. Second prize is $10,000 and third prize is $5,000, according to the contest.

Voting ends at midnight on Friday, Nov. 8., and winners will be announced on Friday, Nov. 15. Any prizes won by Stony Brook will benefit The Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Center.

Stony Brook’s video is set to the tune of “Carry On” by the band Fun. It features campy performances hospital and university officials; Ethan Zohn, professional soccer player and winner of reality TV show “Survivor: Africa,” as well as many Stony Brook Medicine staff, Stony Brook University sports teams and clubs, and community supporters, according to the university hospital.
