5th annual PinkStock draws awareness for breast cancer

Some Michiana residents rocked out for a cure Sunday. Club Landing hosted PinkStock for the 5th year.

The event aims to raise both awareness and funds to help aid the fight against breast cancer.

It featured a number of bands performing throughout the night, while there was also a silent auction and buffet.

The proceeds went to Northern Indiana breast health programs and the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Grants Program.

The goal was to provide the community with a reminder about the dangers of breast cancer while still providing a light-hearted atmosphere.

"We have such tremendous support from the community and to get more people out here. Everytime someone sees something pink, we hope they are thinking, boy have I got my mammogram this year? Am I doing my self breast exam this month. I should check with my friends to make sure they are doing the things they need to do,” said Sherri Miller-Story, Executive Director, Susan G. Komen for the Cure of Northern Indiana.

"It's really light-hearted and a lot of fun about a really serious and potentially dangerous disease that impacts so many people in our community," said Jeanette Hamel, Club Landing owner.

All of the bands who performed at Sunday night’s event donated their time and equipment to the foundation.
