BOLINGBROOK – As a commemoration of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital will host an event to honor breast cancer survivors, and another to inform women on the latest advancements in breast cancer.

Starting at 6 p.m. Oct. 1, Bolingbrook hospital will host a tree-lighting ceremony to honor breast cancer survivors. The free event is open to the public.

During the tree lighting ceremony, Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital will name the winners of its annual Pink Art Contest, held in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Artwork for the contest is due Sept. 26 and will be accepted in three age groups: grade school (kindergarten to eighth grade), high school or 18 and older.

Accepted mediums are two-dimensional pieces of artwork – such as paintings, drawings, photographs and other similar work. The contest is open to amateur artists, though professional artists are welcome to display.

Artwork for the contest will be on display at the hospital throughout the month. For an application, call 630-856-7525 or visit:

Then on Oct. 30, starting at 6 p.m., the hospital will host “Pampered in Pink” at Macy’s at Promenade Bolingbrook. Women are invited to a girl’s night out to learn more about women’s breast health from a panel of experts that will discuss lifestyle, breast health, mammogram screening guidelines and cancer prevention.

For everyone in attendance, Macy’s will provide makeovers and a bag of goodies to take home. There will also be a fashion show and refreshments.

Space for this event is limited, but you can register by calling 630-856-7525.
