’80s & ’90s Dance Party Set to Raise Funds For Breast Cancer Services at Evangelical Community Hospital

Who can forget the ’80s and ’90s with the big hair, torn up jeans and the explosion of music from heavy metal bands and pop queen Britney Spears? Two decades filled with free expression and rebellion – what better way to speak out about breast cancer and the fight for a cure than to celebrate those eras?
 
Evangelical Community Hospital and 94KX of Sunbury Broadcasting Corporation teamed up to Paint the Valley Pink and to raise funds for mammograms, a ’80s and ’90s Dance Party will be held on Friday, October 18, 2013, from 8 pm through midnight at the Front Street Station in Northumberland. Entry is $5 at the door with all of the proceeds supporting the Thyra M. Humphreys Center for Breast Health at Evangelical Community Hospital.
 
Guests can sport their favorite ’80s or ’90s look to add to the fun and everyone who attends is eligible for prizes. The evening will feature Drew Kelly of 94KX’s morning show as host and DJ Darren of 94KX will be spinning hits from the ’80s and ’90s starting at 8 pm. The event is made possible through the generous sponsorship of Zimmermans Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram.
 
The Center for Breast Health supports women in the Susquehanna Valley through mammography screenings and encouraging women to make breast health a priority by scheduling a yearly mammogram at age 40 and older. The Center also provides genetic screening, consultations, breast cancer risk assessment and management, bone density testing and more.
 
Through a grant from Komen Foundation and the Degenstein Foundation the Center is able to offer mammograms to uninsured and underinsured women regardless of their ability to pay.
