Provena Go Pink Tonight!

Tonight, Tuesday October 25, is the fundraising event at Provena Hospital featuring Beaded Jewelry by Susan. Drop by for jewelry, snacks, and speakers!

It’s time to Go PINK! in honor of breast cancer awareness month. Provena Covenant Medical Center is putting on this fun, free and informative event on Tuesday, October 25 from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. in the auditoriums at Provena. Go PINK! will feature world-renowned University of Illinois breast cancer researcher Ann Nardulli, Ph.D., who will discuss the latest advancements in fighting cancer. In addition, two breast cancer survivors will be on hand to share their stories, and they will join a panel of medical experts to answer questions about prevention, diagnosis and treatment.

“The focus of this event is of course breast cancer awareness, but we wanted to bring in some other exciting things for women to do as well,” said Louise Fellmann, Women’s Health Program Coordinator. Rod Sickler Salon & Spa will be providing free mini-manicures and mini-facials, Confidentially Yours will be doing bra fittings, and Macy’s will have fall fashions and a lipstick station. There will also be plenty of educational booths and free health risk assessments, plus light hors d’oeuvres, PINKtinis from Holiday Inn, door prizes and other giveaways.

This event is made possible by proceeds from It's All in the Jeans Day. Registration is requested by not required. To register, call 866-PROVENA toll-free or visit www.provena.org/covenant/rsvp.
