On the Scene: Little black dress goes pink

The Pennsylvania Pink Zone held its third annual “Little Black Dress Goes Pink” event on Oct. 5. It was sponsored by Mount Nittany Health and Fullington Trailways.

The event included a fashion show, silent auction, raffles, live entertainment, a wine tasting and a meet and greet session with the Lady Lion basketball players and coaches.

The Pink Zone added a twist for breast cancer survivors who walked the runway this year — they got to invite family and friends to strut their stuff with them.

About 200 people attended the show to see the women and their loved ones model clothes from local shops, including Appalachian Outdoors, Jezebel’s Boutique, Diamonds & Lace, Harper’s Shop for Men and Wiscoy.

About 20 men acted as butlers throughout the evening and served hors d’oeuvres before the show.

The Pink Zone, which was founded in the summer of 2006, reached the $1 million fundraising mark at the 8th annual Pink Zone game on Feb. 16.
