The Empire Mall and the Avera Breast Center hosted Paint the Mall Pink to spread the awareness of breast cancer.
Chair massages and painting provided by Uncorked Creativity were also offered to registered participants.
Over 20 twenty venders packed the center court of the mall with giveaways, quizzes, and prize drawings to help spread the importance of screening.
“I just want to encourage everybody to be vigilant about breast health and make sure that, even though there is a lot of confusion out there on when mammography is appropriate, the guidelines are 40 and over every single year,” Jill Schultz with Avera McKennan said.
For those unable to attend and looking for more information, they are encouraged to call the Avera Breast Center at 605-322-PINK (7465). For more information on future events check out www.averamckennanfoundation.org.
