Nacogdoches Medical Center celebrates "Simply Pink"

NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - Nacogdoches Medical Center celebrated Breast Cancer Awareness Month Thursday night with their annual Simply Pink event.

The money raised for the event will benefit the American cancer Society.

The event included a fashion show featuring clothes from several local boutiques, a guest speaker who survived breast cancer, and plenty of pink wine and treats.

Simply Pink was brought back in 2014 after a brief hiatus, but this year's event was the largest one yet.

"This year, we've actually sold 75 more tickets," said Nacogdoches Medical Center Physicians Relations Manager Kelly Sobotik. "Last year we had to cut it off so we planned bigger this year and it's definitely been worth it. It's been a great success so far."

This year's event had more sponsors than ever before and Nacogdoches Medical center is hoping to make next year's even bigger.
