GENESEE COUNTY — October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which brings with it countless fundraisers, activities and events across Genesee County. And although tonight marks the 10th Annual Pink Night Palooza, when it comes to raising funds for breast cancer, Halo Burger is just getting warmed up. This month, all eight Halo Burger locations will host their annual Burgers for a Cure fundraiser, donating $1 for every Beefy Double Combo purchased in order to help breast cancer patients at Hurley Medical Center.
Halo Burger, the Title Sponsor of tonight’s Pink Night Palooza event, has hosted the Burgers for a Cure since 2016, and has already raised more than $20,000 from the first two fundraising efforts. This year, the Michigan-based fast food chain hopes to raise another $10,000 and surpass the $30,000 mark.
“Our mission is to make sure that all the money we raise will positively impact our community, right here in Genesee County,” said Olivia Ross, the marketing manager for Halo Burger. “It’s very important that we serve the people that walk through our doors every day. When the opportunity arose to team up with Hurley, it seemed like such an amazing program, fulfilling a tremendous need for breast cancer patients and survivors. It’s just a perfect fit, so ever since we teamed up, we’ve been very proud to help Hurley and their patients throughout the whole month of October.”
With the Burgers for a Cure fundraiser, each time a customer purchases a Beefy Double Combo meal, $1 will be donated to the Hurley Breast Cancer Navigation Program. However, if a customer wishes to simply donate to the program but doesn’t want the Beefy Double meal, the first 1,000 donors will receive a coupon for one free order of fries.

Pink Night Palooza gives the community the power to change lives locally, right here in Genesee County. Funds raised during the dynamic event are guaranteed to stay local, helping local women.
Hundreds of supporters are expected to attend Pink Night Palooza as the event celebrates 10 years of raising money for those affected by breast cancer. This year’s event includes an assortment of appetizers and desserts, drink specials, the iconic Brartistry Fashion Show, a Live Auction led by Chris Swanson, a Silent Auction of irresistible items, games and more fun surprises.
Pink Night Palooza event will be held at the Holiday Inn & Gateway Centre in Flint, and is scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 4 from 5-11 p.m. For more information or to purchase tickets to Pink Night Palooza visit www.hurleymc.com/pink. — Alex Petrie
