Pretty in Pink Ladies Night raises funds for Canadian Cancer Society

The Cancer Caped Crusaders were one of the many festive group costumes sported at the event.

LITTLE CURRENT—Saturday night the Manitoulin Hotel and Conference Centre was full of women decked out in pink for the second annual Ladies’ Night in support of the Canadian Cancer Society hosted by Country 103.

“It was an amazing night and we had a lot of positive feedback from the ladies that attended,” said organizer Kelly Timmermans. “This year’s theme was ‘Pretty in Pink’ and the ladies went all out! The outfits were awesome. Special mention goes out to the West End ladies, which were a group of eight all dressed together and the Cancer Caped Crusaders.”

Attendees enjoyed a dinner of caesar salad, chicken parmesan, pasta, grilled vegetables and a dessert and coffee bar followed by an evening of fun.

There was a silent auction, vendors, massages (all donations to the Canadian Cancer Society), belly dancing, loonie toss, live music from Urban Renewal Sudbury, Hypnotist Jimmy G and a DJ to cap off the night.

As a special surprise, the Sudbury Firefighters were in attendance dancing with the ladies, taking pictures and selling their calendar to raise money for NEO Kids. Extra calendars are available at the Country 103 office located in downtown Little Current.
