The Pella Opera House is hoping to raise awareness about early detection of breast cancer through a special event this month.
The community is invited to take part in their upcoming OPERAtion Pink in Support of Breast Cancer Awareness Luncheon on Saturday, October 21 at 11am. Board Member Bobbie Van Vark tells KNIA/KRLS News the event will feature community members participating in a fashion show, local businesses showcasing their apparel and accessories, an auction, along with a gathering of families and supporters sharing their inspirational stories.
Medical professionals will also provide information about where to schedule screenings, services that are available for early detection and possible preventions, and
support organizations for all of those that are affected by breast cancer.
A portion of the profits will be donated to Pella Regional Health Center. Contact the Pella Opera House or visit pellaoperahouse.org for more information.
