Hospital Beneficiary of Pink Zone

July 31, 2012

Pink Out Auction September 28

The Breast Care Center at Geisinger-Lewistown Hospital is once again a beneficiary of the Pennsylvania Pink Zone, a 501(c) 3 nonprofit that hosts the annual WBCA Pink Zone Penn State Lady Lion’s Basketball game every February at the Bryce Jordan Center. 

The Pennsylvania Pink Zone and Penn State Lady Lion Basketball are a unified force in the fight against breast cancer on the court, across campus, and within communities. The Pennsylvania Pink Zone promotes cancer awareness and empowers survivors through year-round efforts to raise funds critical in supporting vital breast cancer organizations, charities, and facilities that focus on breast cancer education, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.

As one of the six beneficiaries, Geisinger-Lewistown Hospital and its Wellness 4 Women Group (W4W) are committed to supporting and raising funds for the Pennsylvania Pink Zone. Throughout the year, the Hospital and W4W Group will be hosting various fundraising events. The first fundraiser will be a “Pink Out” live auction and themed basket raffle on Friday, September 28, 2012.

The event will take place, rain or shine, in the visitor parking lot across from the Surgical Center at the Hospital. Beginning at 3:00 pm, there will be a pink ribbon cutting ceremony, pig roast, silent auction, themed basket raffle, and an opportunity to view the auction items. The live auction will begin at 5:00 pm.  Auctioneer services are courtesy of Tammy A. Miller who is also an international speaker, author, speech coach as well as a breast cancer survivor.
