CHI Memorial Foundation’s 18th annual Pink! gala raised $433,000. All proceeds will benefit the MaryEllen Locher Breast Center at CHI Memorial.

The sold-out crowd of 1,100 guests helped bring the total amount raised during the annual fundraising gala’s 18 years to more than $5.6 million.

Over the past few years, funds raised through Pink! have expanded access to mammography locally, helped to purchase the latest equipment and provided care to uninsured patients or those struggling to afford care.

Funds will also be used to provide scholarships for children who have a parent with breast cancer and add to the MaryEllen Locher Breast Center Endowment.
