ARCHBOLD.ORG • WINTER 2018 21 ArchboldWomen’s Center and Grady General Hospital ‘pink’ local businesses The Archbold Women’s Center and the Imaging Center at Grady General Hospital highlighted Breast Cancer Awareness Month by “pinking out” local businesses and civic clubs. The initiative is intended to remind women of the risk fac- tors associated with breast cancer and to encourage them to schedule a screening mammogram. Archbold hosts seventh annual Pink Affair Fashion Show On Oct. 25, the Singletary Oncology Center hosted the seventh annual Pink Affair, a benefit fashion show fea- turing local cancer survivors. The presenting sponsor for the event is Thomasville Ford. For the first time, the event was held at the Thomasville Center for the Arts. A celebration honoring the models followed the fashion show with live music from Thomasville band Bleu Burden. The event raised $37,000, and proceeds benefit “Brave and Beautiful,” a new program at the Singletary Oncology Center to help cancer patients with appearance-related side effects. The program will offer monthly workshops led by a licensed cosmetologist who will teach skin care, makeup and hairstyles, includ- ing options for wigs. Archbold news
