Breast Cancer Awareness 'Girls Night Out' Event at Curves Well-Attended
November 21, 2007 - Over 50 local women showed up Saturday evening for the second annual "Girls Night Out," a fundraiser for Hancock Regional Hospital's Women Helping Women organization, which provides mammograms and breast cancer care for women who couldn't otherwise afford it.
Curves of Knightstown hosted the event, which featured breast cancer information, self-examination data, and a host of other cancer-related information.
"We were thrilled with the turn out and we exceeded last year's goal both in attendance and amount raised," said T.J. Fender, who helped organize the evening. "An added bonus from this year was the amount of education and awareness that came out of the event for ladies in the Knightstown area. We couldn't have asked for more support from the community. Women seemed to embrace the idea of helping each other through this effort. We concluded the event with several middle school and high school girls releasing pink balloons that honored Knightstown area residents directly impacted by breast cancer. This helped create a new awareness for future generations."
Those in attendance received door prizes and enjoyed refreshments, all donated by area merchants.
