Three years ago, the group of women known as 'Pretty in Pink' pledged to raise $100,000 for the local Hospital Foundation toward its share of the new Regional Cancer Care Centre and, on November 3rd, they presented the final amount toward their pledge and handed over a cheque for $13,600 to Sally Kidson, Executive Director of the Saugeen Memorial Hospital.

The funds were proceeds raised at their last event, 'Denim and Diamonds' the Gala Finale, that was held on September 3rd (2016).

It took a lot of hard work and perseverance through ladies golf tournaments, luncheons, fashions shows at Infinite Lingerie in Southampton, evenings of food, fashion and music at Rosina's, a masked ball that launched the hospital campaign and the 'Denim and Diamonds Gala' finale, to meet their goal.

Not only did Pretty in Pink meet their goal of $100,000 however ... they surpassed it for a total of $120,000!

When first organized, the first fundraiser was held by Pretty in Pink eight years ago and in the first two years, they raised $34,000 for Canadian Breast Cancer.  Then, came the Mammography Campaign for Saugeen Memorial Hospital Foundation (SMHF) for which they raised $60,200.

After eight years and 25 events later, Pretty in Pink has raised $214,200 for close-to-home health care.

"We never could have done it without you!"
