Hi-Line Women Against Breast Cancer wants to remind everyone that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Hi-Line WABC is holding a number of activities to help with the prevention of breast cancer. All proceeds raised during the month will go toward mammograms and readings for local women.
Quilty raffle. The group is raffling off two quilts, one made by Jean Johnson from Joplin and the other by Gloria Quenzer of Cut Bank. Tickets may be purchased from board members Tina Wood, Ann Wickum, Elayne Wickum, Carlene Diemert, Barb Wolfe and Jan Nelson from Chester; Karen Young and Sara Staub in Shelby; and Gail Davis in Cut Bank.
Pink ribbon cards. During the month people can show their support by purchasing a pink ribbon card. These cards are available and will be displayed at businesses in Chester, Shelby, Cut Bank, Inverness and Dunkirk.
Pink drink nights. To help wrap up the month Hi-Line WABC will have two pink drink nights. The first night will be in Shelby on Oct. 19 at the Elks Club from 7 to 9 p.m. The second night will be in Chester on Oct. 26 at the Roadhouse Bar from 7 to 9 p.m. Pink drinks will be available and a portion of the proceeds will go toward breast cancer prevention.
People can apply to the organization for free mammograms. Free mammograms and readings will be given to as many women as possible with the money earned.
