BAXLEY, Ga. (WSAV) – Appling Healthcare is joining forces with the town of Baxley and surrounding communities for Paint the Town Pink event — superhero style.
The event on Tuesday, October 10 is an opportunity for family members and friends to get involved with Breast Cancer Awareness month.
“One out of 8 women in Georgia will have breast cancer in their lifetime. So if we catch 20 people, out of a hundred mammograms, they’re also gonna need another intervention,” says Knicole Lee, a nurse practitioner.
Lee is also the founder of B.A.B.E.S. which stands for Battling Against Breast cancer, Educating for Survival. B.A.B.E.S. t-shirts are sold to raise funds for those who may not be able to afford a mammogram on their own.
In addition to t-shirt sales, Baxley’s Paint the Town Pink event will raise money with a night of bingo, raffles, and fun.
$10 will get you 8 rounds of bingo, and tickets can be purchased at the event.
Doors open at the Appling Healthcare System Cafeteria at 5:30 p.m. and bingo starts at 6:30 p.m.
Head on out to the event Tuesday, and don’t forget to dress as your favorite superhero!
