350 Women Dress in PJ’s and Hawaiian Leis to Join the Fight Against Breast Cancer at 6th Annual Fundraising Event

Pink was the color of the night as more than 350 women dressed in pink boas, pajamas and Hawaiian leis to attend Little Company of Mary Hospital’s 6th Annual Pink Pajama Party. It may have been cold outside, but it was warm and exciting inside the DoubleTree Hotel in Alsip. This year’s beach theme added to the fun of the evening, with a beach backdrop for pictures and beach balls bouncing on the dance floor.

The Pink Pajama Party is an overnight fundraiser celebration for breast cancer patients, survivors and supporters benefiting The Cancer Center at Little Company of Mary Hospital. Over the past six years, $150,000 has been raised to assist women in need going through breast cancer treatment at Little Company of Mary Hospital through the Pink Pajama Party Mini Grant Program.
