‘Pack the Place Pink Night’ in LaMoille

LAMOILLE — Perry Memorial Hospital in Princeton will sponsor a “Pack the Place Pink Night” on Tuesday, Oct. 10, at the LaMolle-Ohio High School girls volleyballgame.

In recognition of breast cancer awareness, Perry Memorial and LaMoille High School are teaming together to show support for both the Lady Lions cancer survivors.

According to the Susan Komen Foundation, it is estimated that in 2015 there was more than 231,840 new cases of invasive breast cancer in women and in men, as well. Getting regular mammogram screening tests is the best way to lower your risk of dying from breast cancer. Screening tests can find breast cancer early, when it’s most treatable.

This “Pack the Place Pink Night” event is being held at LaMoille High School, 801 S. Main St. in LaMoille with the fresh-soph game starting at 5:30 p.m. and the varsity game to follow. 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 materials regarding breast cancer and the importance of self-breast exams.
