Chilton Hospital’s Paint the Towns Pink Campaign Celebrates Five Years of Communitywide Compassion|
For the fifth year in a row, Chilton Hospital’s Paint the Towns Pink campaign has gathered a team of local businesses to help support The Breast Center and the 16,000 women in the community that it serves.
In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, 21 businesses have committed to donate to the Chilton Hospital Foundation, specifically for this cause. Last year’s event raised more than $17,000, bringing the total to more than $50,000 to date.
During the week of October 7 through 13, Chilton is asking the community to support these compassionate businesses that have generously made campaign pledges. Many of the establishments will offer discounts during this time.
The 2013 list of businesses that have pledged to the Paint the Towns Pink campaign are as follows:
Open Road Auto Group, Acura of Wayne
Pompton Queen Diner, Pompton Plains

Over the years, Paint the Towns Pink has also received numerous donations from other organizations and individuals who wanted to help Chilton fight breast cancer, although they were not on the official business roster. In 2012, Wayne Hills High School and Wayne Valley High School joined forces to raise and contribute $3,950 from a girls’ soccer match.
“To see these two schools put their intense rivalry aside to help the community exemplifies how much this mission means to everyone,” explained Chilton Hospital Foundation and Community Outreach Director Joan Beloff. “There have been many other heart-warming stories of impromptu fundraisers, including Spa 23, which raised $800 through a ‘Hope Event,’ and Wayne-based jewelry dealer Kellie Catalano, who raised $250 through an event she organized at Positano Restaurant and Pizzeria.”
