Pamper Me Pink in Culpeper

Novant Health UVA Health System Culpeper Medical Center to host annual event

Novant Health UVA Health System Culpeper Medical Center will co-host its 12th annual Pamper Me Pink event with Pepperberries on Tuesday, Oct. 24. Pamper Me Pink was created by Sharon Welch Clark, owner of Pepperberries, after she saw a need in the community to heighten awareness and raise money for breast cancer, while also enjoying some pampering.

“Culpeper Medical Center is proud to partner with Pepperberries each year for this great event,” said Jeff Hetmanski, the medical center’s president. “We are committed to improving the health our community and this event is a great way to heighten breast cancer awareness, raise money, have fun and enjoy learning from our expert providers and clinicians.”

Attendees will be treated to pampering and information on health care services, as well as light refreshments and a chance to win door prizes, including a prize package valued at $500 donated by Pepperberries. Winners must be present to win. The program will also include a panel of cancer survivors who will share their stories, and Dr. Alta DeRoo, director of UVA OBGYN, a department of Novant Health UVA Health System Culpeper Medical Center will speak on women’s health.

“Our Pamper Me Pink event and fund enable women and men in Culpeper and surrounding communities to receive life-saving mammograms at no charge,” said Clark. “Our partnership with Novant Health UVA Health System Culpeper Medical Center on this event allows this needed service to continue in our community.”

The Pamper Me Pink Mammography Fund offers mammography services to women and men of qualified financial need and has provided hundreds of mammograms to members of Culpeper and its surrounding communities.
