The St. George Lions Club, an annual leader in the fight against this life threatening disease in southern Utah, will once again rally community support and spirit for the cause Friday, September 14, 2012 through its Tough Enough To Wear Pink Rodeo at the Lions’ Dixie Sunbowl.
The 2011 Pink Rodeo generated $7,500 and cumulatively, $50,000 raised over the last five years has been gifted by the Lions to support breast cancer care and services at Dixie Regional.
According to Wayne Hoppal, chairman of last years rodeo, both the St. George Lions membership and those whose lives have been touched by their efforts are deeply grateful for the success of the event. (quoted) Were especially proud of the fact that our community turns out in droves every year to support this very important Pink Night. To be able to say the money stays right here at home, ready to help our loved ones and friends, makes all our efforts worthwhile, Hoppal said.
John Ames, a fellow Lions member and major sponsor of the Pink night along with Ames Group Realty, says, (quoted) Were grateful to be able to support this event in this way because my family and I have positively benefitted in so many ways by state of the art care available right here at home. And its been the generosity of so many friends and neighbors who we have helped make such care a reality. Were honored to play a part.
TOUGH ENOUGH TO WEAR PINK
Friday September 16 is PINK NIGHT at the rodeo, sponsored by John and Lisa Ames. The Lions Club will donate $1 from every ticket sold to Breast Cancer programs provided by the Dixie Regional Medical Center. So GET YOUR PINK ON and come on out!
