‘Pink Zone’ event this weekend

DILLON — Kiwanis Club of Dillon is teaming up with Beaverhead Brewery for the 2018 Pink Zone.

The “Pink Zone,” formerly known as “Think Pink,” was started in 2007 by the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association as an initiative to raise breast cancer awareness in campus communities and beyond.

On Friday, Feb. 9, and Saturday, Feb. 10, the Beaverhead Brewery in Dillon will donate one dollar for each pint sold. Pink Zone will have the opportunity to purchase a Pink Zone paper ribbon in memory of a loved one lost to cancer or in support of a breast cancer survivor.

Since its inception, Pink Zone fundraising events have raised over $45,000 in Beaverhead County. All monies raised are donated to the Southwest Montana Mammography Program at Barrett Hospital in Dillon.
