Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev flew into New York City this weekend to kick off Breast Cancer Awareness Month by lending her star power to Puma’s Project Pink Day in Union Square!

Puma and Nina worked together on Sunday afternoon to let people know they can vote for their favorite breast cancer charity through October 7th, with the winning charity receiving 100% of the proceeds from Puma’s Project Pink Initiate. As Celebuzz reported in July, if you Tweet #projectpink between now and October 31 (one tweet per user per day), PUMA will donate an additional $1 — up to $25,000 — to the ultimate beneficiary.

Nina also used the social media site to get as many fans as possible to swing by Union Square, tweeting: 

@ninadobrev – “I’m so psyched to celebrate #projectpink day with @puma in NYC on Oct 2. Come join and keep tweeting #projectpink!”

@ninadobrev – “NYC-bound to celebrate all things #projectpink with @puma tmrw at their Union Sq store — come visit!”

Nina and her fans weren’t the only ones to drop by New York City this weekend – joining her was her co-star turned real-life boyfriend Ian Somerhalder! The sexy Vampire Diaries duo seem to have had a great time, tweeting:

@ninadobrev -“What a perfect weekend! Fun. Spontaneous. Yummy. Inspiring. It could not have been better. Not a single complaint!”

@iansomerhalder – “Brilliant day in NY. Great brunch with a brother, evening with close friends talking, art, commerce and sustainability-love this place. Miss it”
