NU’s ‘Pink Night’ raises $1,500 for Breast Imaging Center

The Nevada Union volleyball team’s fourth annual “Pink Night,” geared to raise funds and awareness or the battle against breast cancer, once again turned out to be a success.

The team honored breast cancer survivor Stacey Salvato and Kimberly Parker from Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital Foundation, who has supported the event from the start.

According to Kim Carnahan, a breast cancer survivor and mentor to this year’s event organizer and NU senior middle hitter, Marnie McDowell, “Pink Night” raised about $1,500 Tuesday.

“I would say that Marnie had a very successful senior project,” Carnahan said. “It goes to show you how supportive this community is, even during these hard times.”

Carnahan said that brings the total money raised over the past four years to $6,207, all of which has been given to the SNMH Breast Imaging Center and the Barbara Schmidt Millar foundation. This year, the money is being used to help purchase the Finesse Ultra Breast Biopsy System allowing a less traumatic sampling of breast tissue, Carnahan said.
