TULSA, Oklahoma -- You've seen the pink emergency vehicles around Tulsa. That was just the beginning of a campaign to Turn Tulsa Pink. In fact, next week is Turn Tulsa Pink Week, and now the Golden Driller is in on the action.

A crew from the Meeks Group is wrapping the Golden Driller's boots, turning them pink. He's got be pretty self-assured to wear pink boots.

Turning work boots from gold to pink's not easy. There are lots of texture issues; they decided to cut around the laces.

Last year, Judi Grove of Turn Tulsa Pink received a Tulsey, in large part because of her Breast Impressions project. She created nearly 500 plaster castings for women facing breast cancer surgery.

several other downtown buildings will sport pink lights during the weeklong celebration. Judi is quick to say this is not just about breast cancer, ten charities that benefit women and children are involved.
