Eight years and 25 events later, 'Pretty in Pink' of Saugeen Shores has raised over $200,000 for local and regional health and cancer care. 

From golf tournaments to luncheons, galas to fashion shows, 'Pretty in Pink' has organized events where the proceeds go toward local health care such as mammography equipment and an oncology suite at the regional health care centre in Owen Sounds hospital.

On Saturday night, September 3rd (2016), 'Pretty in Pink' is hosting its final fundraising event - 'Denim and Diamonds' at the Southampton Coliseum Annex that has been transformed into a sparkling venue.  The doors open at 6:00 p.m. for a cocktail reception followed by dinner at 7:15 p.m.

The evening features a delectable fabulous four-course dinner complete with musical entertainment, a live auction with a $5,000 diamond bracelet from Vincent Jeweler, a raffle of a $1,000 diamond necklace and iPad mini, among some surprise 'antics' by the Pretty Boys. Ethan Salmon will also entertain in his sauve Sinatra-like style and Lulus Band after dinner is always an entertainment treat.
