Ladies Night Out Drawing Winner Announced

Breast Cancer Awareness

The third annual Ladies Night Out, a community breast health awareness event sponsored by Sonora Regional Medical Center, was held in downtown Sonora on the evening of October 1. Approximately 400 participants came downtown to enjoy complimentary manicures and massages, live music, a photo booth and an evening of shopping and services at over 25 participating businesses. 

Carol Billigmeier was the lucky winner of a drawing for a giant gift basket filled with all items pink and pampering. The basket also included two tickets to the 2016 Joie de Vie Gala, a $300 value. Five other participants won free mammograms, courtesy of the Diagnostic Imaging Department at Sonora Regional Medical Center, which they can either use themselves or gift to someone they love who needs this important exam. 

Ladies Night Out participants also had the opportunity to vote on their favorite downtown business breast health awareness window display. There were many great displays all along Washington Street but the winner was Old City Hotel Emporium. The close runner up was Funky Junk. 

The Medical Center has been lit up in pink, which will continue through the end of October as a reminder to everyone in the community to talk to their doctor about risk factors and screening options and for those over 40 or at high risk for developing breast cancer to get a mammogram. If it’s time for your mammogram, call (209) 536-3437 to schedule. 

The Breast Health Awareness Committee at the Medical Center is already planning the fourth annual Ladies Night Out, scheduled for October 6, 2016.
