Oak Hill Hospital recently invited the public to its First “Real Men Wear Pink” Fashion Show Fundraiser on Tuesday, October 9, The public and hospital staff watched the Real Men of Oak Hill Hospital as they strut their stuff on the pink carpet. Those who attended were invited to donate to their favorite Real Man.
All proceeds of the packed house event went to the American Cancer Society, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 2018. “They did an incredible job of strutting their stuff down the catwalk,” said Oak Hill Hospital Vice President Cathy Edmisten. “This was all to raise awareness about the importance of mammograms and to raise funds for the American Cancer Society—Making Strides Against Breast Cancer,” she added. The fashion show raised $522.09 during the fashion show; the team also raised $786 online, for a total of $1,308.09!
