BOLINGBROOK – Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital is hosting a "Pink Friday" celebration on Friday to celebrate the advent of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which begins Oct. 1.

From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, hospital staff will host a bake sale in the lobby. Additionally, residents can view artwork created by Adventist staff during the hospital’s “Bra Decorating Contest.”

During the last week, several members of the hospital's workforce have designed and decorated bras as a tribute to those affected by breast cancer and Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

For $1, people can vote for their favorite bra and all the proceeds will benefit the Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital Breast Center.

Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital is located at 500 Remington Blvd.
