In 2009, 31 structures and stores will be illuminated in pink each evening as a lead up to the Komen New York City Race for the Cure®. In addition, there will be six virtual City in Pink participants who will be turning their websites pink for the occasion. Each year, City in Pink kicks off with an invitation-only party. This year’s event will be held at the Samsung Experience on the third floor of the Shops at Columbus Circle in the Time Warner Center.

The evening’s program will be hosted by CBS 2’s Maurice DuBois. For more details on this organization and event visit

Kt Giftings is a department under Kt Steppers, LLC. Kt Steppers is a mom-owned, children inspired, online gift boutique featuring hand-painted and custom designed “steppers” or step stools. According to Katie O’Neill, “my company and many others seek out celebrities and other high profile people to get recognition and approval of their products & company brand. There are other ‘celeb gifting’ companies out there who charge a tremendous amount to do this. As a fellow ‘mom-preneur’ I needed to come up with a better, less expensive way to reach who we wanted and know that our products and company info. was reaching the desired destination. Kt Giftings was formed”.
