How Donations Save Lives
The American Cancer Society is putting your dollars to work now – doing the most in every community to help women with cancer today and working tirelessly to find cures to end the disease tomorrow. Since Making Strides began 20 years ago; breast cancer death rates have declined 32 percent.
The progress we’re making because of Making Strides supporters is nothing short of remarkable. But it is no time to rest. When more walkers raise money to fight breast cancer, there will be more survivors celebrating more birthdays.

About Pink Night
Pink Night is a night to celebrate the lives of breast cancer survivors and those who were taken from us. Our goal is to educate as many men and women on early testing and financial assistance as possible, while raising monetary funds to support the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer cause.
The inspiration behind Pink Night began in 2007 by a few driven employees of Financial Plus Federal Credit Union in Flint, MI. These employees began rallying their friends, family, and community to gather for one night in October to raise funds for their Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk team. The first event held was appropriately named, “Pink Night.”

Pink Night’s Goal and Contribution to Making Strides Against Breast Cancer
Pink Night has grown substantially since its first event from raising $1,000 in 2007 to $27,000 in 2011. Our goal for 2012 is to raise $50,000. The key to Pink Night’s growth has been rallying passionate and like minded community leaders together. Every person and business can help make a difference.
Pink Night 2012 is set for October 4 at Blackstone’s Pub and Grill in downtown Flint. Tickets, t-shirts and other awesome pink merchandise are available for purchase in our online Pink Night Store.
