OHIO, Ill. — Perry Memorial Hospital in Princeton will sponsor a “Pink Night” on Dec. 18 at the LaMoille/Ohio Lions basketball game at Ohio High School.

In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness, Perry Memorial and Ohio High School are teaming together to show support for both the LaMoille/Ohio Lions and breast cancer survivors.

According to the Susan Komen Foundation, it is estimated that in 2012 there will be over 226,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer in women and over 2,100 new cases of breast cancer in men. Getting regular mammogram screening tests is the best way to lower your risk of dying from breast cancer.

This “Pink Night” event is being held at the Ohio High School gymnasium. The fresh/soph basketball game begins at 6 p.m. with the varsity game beginning at 7:30 p.m. Those that wear pink to the game will have the opportunity to register for a door prize. In addition, Perry will be giving out educational material regarding breast cancer and the importance of self breast exams.
