Light the Town Pink, an annual event hosted by St. John’s Hospital
Foundation commemorating breast cancer awareness month, will be held on
Tuesday, October 2 from 5:30 to 6:30 pm on the Jackson Town Square. One
of the most visible aspects of the awareness month are the pink lights
on the square’s southeast antler arch, which will stay lit all month.
The evening’s events will feature information on cancer services
and brief remarks about local advances and resources for the early detection
and treatment of breast cancer.
"This informative community celebration provides an opportunity to
learn about some of the exciting new developments in cancer care,"
said John Goettler, president of St. John’s Hospital Foundation.
"We are pleased to invite the community to this beloved annual tradition
of marking Breast Cancer Awareness Month by celebrating breast cancer
survivors and sharing resources for early detection and treatment options.”
Remarks will begin at 6:00 pm, followed by a ceremony to recognize cancer
survivors. The event will also feature a free raffle, refreshments, and
giveaways. Raffle prizes include mammograms, dinner gift certificates,
and floral bouquets.
