Pink Is the Color of the Month!
The Second Annual Octoberfest Gone Pink! celebration will be on First Friday October 7th in downtown Hamilton.
The Hamilton merchants and Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital have teamed up with the Soroptimists to Sprinkle Pink all over Hamilton with donations made to the mammography fund at the hospital. There will be pink tagged items in the stores, pink raffle tickets and the "Mammo Men," a group of guys who are challenging each other to raise the most money for the fund. A winner will be crowned Friday night. Music downtown will be by Tom Catmull and the Clerics. Breast cancer survivor Jill Valley of KPAX TV will be there, too.
Money raised during the month will go to the fund that allows women to have mammograms, even if they don't have the available money. Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital will match the money raised by the community during October.
