Studies show one in eight women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. It’s the second-leading cause of cancer death nationally. And it remains one of the most common cancers treated at Archbold’s Lewis Hall Singletary Oncology Center each year.
On October 25, 2018, the Singletary Oncology Center will host the seventh annual Pink Affair, a benefit fashion show featuring local cancer survivors, at the Thomasville Center for the Arts. The presenting sponsor for the event will be Thomasville Ford.
The local car dealership has pledged to donate $150 from every car sold in October to the Singletary Oncology Center’s “Brave and Beautiful” program, a new program that will offer patients monthly workshops led by a licensed cosmetologist who will teach skincare, makeup and hairstyles, including options for wigs.
“We believe in the idea that when you feel better about yourself, it will perpetuate the healing process,” said Ricky Stokes, President of Thomasville Ford. “We want to be involved with anything in the community that helps the citizens of Thomasville feel better, look better and heal faster.”
“Thomasville Ford’s generous donation will provide resources that otherwise may not be available for many of our patients fighting cancer. We’re very grateful to Thomasville Ford for committing to be the presenting sponsor of Archbold’s Pink Affair this year,” said Vann Middleton, president of the Archbold Foundation.
The Pink Affair will be held Thursday, October 25, 2018, at the Center for the Arts in Thomasville. A celebration honoring the models will follow the fashion show. Live music will be provided by Thomasville band Bleu Burden. Pink cocktail attire is suggested, but not required.
