10:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
A dynamic group of In the Pink ambassadors and community leaders with the goal of enhancing prevention, education and awareness of breast and other cancers in our community.
In the last 18 years, more than 150 women in our community with no health insurance were diagnosed and treated for breast cancer, thanks to Project Mammogram.
Just as important, more than 10,000 Lake Houston residents without insurance have the gift of “peace of mind” because they know they don’t have breast cancer, thanks to the screening and diagnostic mammograms they received through Project Mammogram.
With numbers like those, we had to say yes to co-chairing the Northeast Hospital Foundation’s 2019 “In the Pink of Health” happenings scheduled for September and October. And now we’re asking you to join us.
Our 2nd Play for the Pink Golf Tournament is set for September 20 at Oakhurst Golf Club. The 12th Annual In the Pink of Health Luncheon will be held at the Houston Marriott Hotel on October 18. We’ll cap the festivities with what has become the annual Pink Out Football Game between Summer Creek and Atascocita high schools on October 25.
Each of these special events benefits Project Mammogram, a community program sponsored by the Northeast Hospital Foundation and Memorial Hermann Northeast Hospital, offering free mammograms and breast ultrasounds to qualifying women and men without insurance. Our “In the Pink of Health” events help bridge the gaps in funding so we can continue to provide Project Mammogram to Lake Houston.
Every dime you donate stays right here in Lake Houston. That means, together, we can continue to provide “peace of mind” for so many uninsured and vulnerable fellow residents.
Say yes! Join us for golf, for a terrific lunch and inspiring speaker, or for a fun high school football game – or all three.
We can do so much more for our community – when we do it in “Pink.”
Project Mammogram is the flagship program of the Northeast Hospital Foundation that has grown to affect the lives of almost 10,000 Lake Houston residents. Project Mammogram's service area extends to Northeast Harris, Montgomery and Liberty counties. In 2018, Project Mammogram saw 330 qualifying patients and performed 183 screening mammograms, 136 diagnostic mammograms, 143 ultrasounds, 26 biopsies. From those screenings and services, 6 cancers were detected. The funds raised at In the Pink are reinvested locally into the community with 100% of the proceeds staying here
The Northeast Hospital Foundation, founded in 1987, has impacted the lives of Lake Houston area residents for over 30 years. The Foundation's flagship program is Project Mammogram. Project Mammogram and other initiatives of the Foundation are funded by the support of grantors, donors and fundraising events such as the 12th In the Pink of Health Luncheon, 2nd Annual Play for the Pink Golf Tournament, and other community Partners in Pink events including the PINK OUT efforts. We are so thankful to all of our donors who make our mission impact possible.
