CARSON CITY — For the second year in a row, Carson City Hospital will be transformed into a elegant world of pink to raise money for breast cancer care during the Pink Ribbon Affair on Oct. 13.
The event raises funds for the hospital’s cancer survivorship program and breast health program.
“We weren’t sure what to expect last year and were so thrilled at the amazing turnout and incredible energy of this unique event,” said Andrea Russell, Pink Ribbon Affair coordinator and Carson City Hospital’s breast health navigator. “More than 600 community members and cancer survivors filled the lobby, bidding on art, enjoying hors d’oeuvres and helping us raise funds.”
This year’s butterfly-themed Pink Ribbon Affair will begin at 5:30 p.m. and end at 8 p.m. There wil be an auction showcasing artwork from students in the local community, a pink-themed silent auction, live music and a multitude of door prizes.
There will also be a chocolate foundation and pink treats hors d’oeuvres for guests to enjoy throughout the night.
Local breast cancer survivors will be the guests of honor.
“We have a fantastic team at Carson City Hospital which works together to help our patients navigate through the complex web of managing their breast health,” said Dr. Donna Moyer, Carson City Hospital’s chief of radiology and emcee for the Pink Ribbon Affair.
She said the whole community is invited to attend the event and learn more about the breast health and patient services available at the hospital.
“Just like it was last year, it’s going to be a very special evening,” Moyer said.
There is no admission cost for the Pink Ribbon Affair and anyone who wears pink to the event will have his or her name entered into a drawing for a pink NetBook computer donated by CMS Internet.
