Plantation employees filmed a video for a competition that could win one charity $10,000.
Update: The 2012 Pink Glove Dance is complete! Congratulations to the winners of the video competition. We are glad to have participated in the competition, and we hope that it will continue to help women remember to get their annual mammograms.
Plantation General Hospital is one of hundreds of organizations across the United States and Canada that has produced its own video as part of a national competition for the best Pink Glove Dance video of 2012. More than 50 Plantation employees worked together to produce a dance video for Katy Perry’s song “Part of Me.” If we win, Not My Daughter, Find a Cure Now will receive a $10,000 dollar donation. Katy Perry gave permission to use the song specifically for the Pink Glove competition, and it helped inspire our storyline.
Our story begins with Belle, a young woman, who is getting a mammogram and is confronted by various negative emotions. “Strength” and “Hope” drag Belle to the mammogram suite. There Belle meets “Early Detection.” “Early Detection” reads Belle’s mammogram scan and determines there is no cancer. With joy and grace, Belle and her friends celebrate by dancing with Pink Glove Power.
The top three winners receive a donation in their name to the breast cancer charity of their choice. Voting ends Nov. 2, so get to Pink Glove Dance now! First place wins $10,000 for charity, second place receives $5,000 and third place receives $2,000.
Our entire video was filmed in Plantation General Hospital by employees. Four hours of footage was consolidated to three-and-half minutes using ProShow Gold.
