Pretty in Pink

Euralene Sheffield donned a pink hard hat during last year’s breast cancer awareness event at Mt. Zion Baptist. This year’s theme is Pretty in Pink. 

The Women Building Women Ministry at Mt. Zion Baptist Church will be looking “Pretty in Pink” on Saturday, Oct. 12 as they hold their third annual breast cancer awareness event.

“We had so many in our church dealing with breast cancer, both men and women,” said Sharon Johnson, one of the organizers of the event. “I had a niece who died of breast cancer.”

Given how close to home the disease had come, the congregation decided three years ago that they would fight back by raising awareness and funds to aid in research for a cure. What came about was their annual event.

“Last year we wore hard hats and it was a construction theme,” she said. “This year, the theme will be Pretty in Pink.”

The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Oct. 12 at Mt. Zion Church at 301 South Jackson Street in Tullahoma. Everyone is invited. The event will include a J.C. Penney fashion show along with numerous vendors selling shoes, purses, candles, Mary Kay, jewelry and beauty tips. Lunch will also be available. Proceeds will go to the multi-county cancer society. Anyone wishing to donate may contact Johnson at 247-4724.
