FLINT — Pink Night Palooza, as a community, has set a record for supporting local breast cancer patients and survivors.
This year, more than 15 local businesses held mini fundraisers to raise money for the Hurley Breast Cancer Navigation Program. Coupled with its annual event, where decorated bras are raffled off, they raised a grand total of $151,752.17.
At a recent press event, several businesses and community members came to the hospital to present their checks. • Chanda Jones – $2,020.65 • Eclections – $4,601.58 • Dr. Wax – $4,800.00 • InstaLube – $7,097.25 • Halo Burger – $10,000 • Grand Blanc Huntsman Club – $10,017.92
Pink Night Palooza thanks all of it sponsors who have also contributed to this record breaking effort. Hurley Medical Center, through our breast cancer navigator, provides patients financial and emotional support beyond medical treatment. Every penny raised for these efforts stays local, according to the organization. — G.G.
