Pink Hatters' Night Out benefits Cancer Services Partnership of Genesee and Orleans counties
The Cancer Services Partnership of Genesee and Orleans County will hold its annual cancer awareness program, Pink Hatters’ Night Out on Thursday, Oct. 10, at the Clarion Hotel, 8250 Park Road, Batavia. Guests are encouraged to wear a pink hat.
The evening is a colorful, celebratory event filled with laughter. However, when survivors stand up based on the number of years since they received their cancer diagnosis, an awe-inspiring hush fills the room. Women who are currently battling the illness are applauded with support. Women who have been cancer free for decades provide hope to everyone.
A Chinese Auction and “cash and carry” vendors will be available from 4 to 6 p.m. A light dinner and dessert will be served from 6 -7 p.m. Following dinner, cancer survivors will be recognized and prizes will be awarded for the best pink hats. Entertainment will be provided by the Genesee Community College theater group.
Tickets are $20 each and available by pre-sale only. Call the UMMC Healthy Living Department at (585) 344-5331 for registration information. Table reservations are only available for parties of 10. Payment and registrations must be received by Oct. 3. This event is funded in part by a grant from Susan G. Komen for the Cure of Western New York.
The Cancer Services Partnership is a grant funded program which provides access to free colorectal, breast and cervical cancer screenings for men and women, age 18 to 64, who are uninsured or underinsured. United Memorial manages the Partnership for Orleans and Genesee counties.
