Come on out to the town square on Thursday evening and join St. John’s Medical Center’s oncology team, hospital and foundation staff, volunteers, survivors, and members of our community as they turn on pink lights around the square and help spread Breast Cancer awareness.
On Thursday, October 2, at 5:30 at the antler arch on the southwest corner of the town square, St. John’s Medical Center will recognize Breast Cancer Awareness month with a ceremony on the Jackson town square to “Light the Town Pink”. “We hope that the pink lights on the elk antler arch will serve to remind people throughout October that early detection saves lives,” said event emcee and hospital trustee Elizabeth Masek.
Attendees will receive cancer awareness giveaways, hear brief remarks, and participate in a drawing. Prizes include two Weekend Peak Pack passes to Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, a season pass to Snow King, and gift certificates for free mammograms. Winners of the ski passes will also receive a free pink Smith ski helmet to wear all season to be an ambassador for breast cancer awareness. Free tickets to the drawing (limit one per person) will be available on the square between 5:30 and 6 pm, and entrants must be present to win.
An after-party, sponsored by Soroptimist of Jackson Hole, will take place immediately following the ceremony at the Grand Teton Gallery, 130 West Broadway.
