Nothing is better than a girls' night out – unless you can party in your pj's with your best gal pals! This year's Pink Pajama Party, the signature event for Indiana Women In Need, will bring breast cancer survivors, their friends, families and other supporters together for a night of dinner, dancing and fun to support their mission of helping women of all ages affected by breast cancer.
Indiana Women in Need was created to eliminate some of the stresses and demands of everyday life for women undergoing breast cancer treatment. I.W.I.N. provides individualized services such as housekeeping, childcare, meals, yard maintenance, pet care, massage therapy, transportation assistance and other vital support for women feeling the strain of dealing with their illness while still trying to maintain lives at home. To date, I.W.I.N. has served over 2,000 women since its inception and delivered over $900,000 worth of services to women in need. As one of its recipients said, "When you are being treated for breast cancer and missing work, the last thing you need to worry about is how you are going to buy groceries. You were there to help!"
At this year's event, hosted by WTHR's Anne Marie Tiernon, guests will enjoy complimentary spa services such as massages, mini facials, hair up do's and manicures. A silent auction and raffle will add to the excitement, as well as a sit down dinner complete with a chocolate fountain for dessert. Guests can dance the night away to the tunes of Living Proof, Indy's top cover band. Photo opportunities will allow participants to remember the fun. The next morning the festivities continue with a warm breakfast provided to guests.
