Every October I drive four hours to Columbia, South Carolina to attend one of my favorite events of the year: Lexington Medical Center’s Women’s Night Out breast cancer fundraiser. It is a celebration of breast cancer survivors and the wonderful people who care for them at Lexington Medical Center. Last night we had more than 500 people attend the event. I wore my Real Men Wear Pink necktie by Diane Katzman! It is a tie that I bought at this same event two years ago in the silent auction.
This year’s event event featured a silent auction, physician exhibits, makeup demonstrations, a signature cocktail, a fashion show by Belk featuring breast cancer survivors, and a dinner and talk with a keynote speaker. The speaker was Emory Austin, a 20-year breast cancer survivor who delivered a motivational speech about how her cancer diagnosis became a great teacher and brought renewed purpose, balance and priorities to her life. She did an amazing job!
This year my friend Mark Shelley, the Director of Marketing and Advertising at Lexington Medical Center (LMC), introduced the hospital’s Pink Glove Dance Video to the attendees. LMC is currently in first place in the Pink Glove Dance competition. The video was incredibly well received by the live audience. Below is Mark’s introduction to the video:
I’m definitely proud of my affiliation with Lexington Medical Center and it is an honor to be a part of event’s like their Women’s Night Out. You can view Lexington Medical Center’s Pink Glove Dance Video at http://pinkglovedance.com/competition/entry-39. They really did a great job.
