Power of Pink


Power of Pink! is an educational forum which raises awareness about women and breast cancer in a fun and inspirational atmosphere. The Power of Pink! Luncheon, began 27 years ago as the Jan Moore Memorial Lecture. Ms. Moore lost her battle to breast cancer in 1993, but her courage and determination won the hearts of her friends, family, and hospital leaders. As a result those who knew her best wanted to help inform others about breast cancer. What began as a handful of women discussing breast cancer over sack lunches in the hall of CHI St. Luke's Health-Memorial has grown to a luncheon that caters to more than 1200 women in Deep East Texas.

This year’s events will be:

    Tuesday, October 15
    11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
    Polk County Commerce Center
    Thursday, October 17
    11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
    Pitser Garrison Convention Center

Hosted by Temple Cancer Center’s Medical Director Sid Roberts, M.D. the event features both hilarious and heartwarming moments that entertain, inspire and provide educational awareness.

Art Bra Contest

As one of the much anticipated portions of the event, the 11th Annual Art Bra Exhibit will showcase extravagant bras as various members of the community “walk the runway” modeling these uniquely creative designs. A delicious lunch, door prizes and raffle prizes are also part of the annual luncheons.
