Gundersen St. Joseph’s Hospital in Hillsboro recently hosted an event called “Paint My Night Pink.”

Ladies were invited to a fun and informational fundraiser to help raise awareness about breast cancer and the importance of mammograms.  
“Ladies night out events always brings an opportunity for getting together and mixing some fun into learning more about important health issues,” said Susan Zimmerman, marketing director at Gundersen St. Joseph’s Hospital and Clinics.  “Breast cancer has had a huge impact on someone in all of our lives one way or another. Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, we chose to use this venue to raise funds for the H.O.P.E.  (Helping Our People Everyday) organization that do so much for people needing help in our communities.”

Seventy tickets were sold to capacity within four days of announcing the event.

Proceeds from the “Paint My Night Pink” event amounted in a donation of $1,064.42 to the H.O.P.E. organization.
