We Are Seeking Your Help!

Once again, it is time to begin the planning process for the 13th AnnualTaunia Oechslin Girls Night Out®. The event raises money for theJoyce Murtha Breast Care Center at the Chan Soon-Shiong Medical Center in Windber. All proceeds are used towards increasing breast cancer awareness and ensuring “cutting edge” breast care for every woman in our community.

In 2007, Girls Night Out began as a small “pay it forward” project by Taunia Oechslin, a breast cancer fighter who was diagnosed at 36 years old and succumbed to the disease on April 9, 2009 at the age of 39. It was her goal that every woman is educated about breast cancer, understands the value of early detection, and receives proper treatment.

To date Taunia Oechslin Girls Night Out® has raised over $850,000 for the Joyce Murtha Breast Care Center at the Chan Soon-Shiong Medical Center in Windber and is the largest dinner event in Johnstown with over 815 women in attendance. We are excited to announce our goal to raise a total of $1million over 13 years. Will you help us reach that goal this year?

We all know women who have been affected by this terrible disease and have seen the impact this disease has on those stricken and on their families. Please mark your calendar for
Tuesday, April 16, 2019, at the Pasquerilla Conference Center (Downtown Johnstown) for what promises to be another fun-filled, life-saving event to support the Joyce Murtha Breast Care Center at the Chan Soon-Shiong Medical Center in Windber.

The event has grown by leaps and bounds each year in both attendance and dollars, but we can’t do it without you! We need your continuing support to ensure the 13th Annual event is an even bigger success.

Everyone can help by choosing one of the following:
• Donating a designer purse, silent auction item, live auction item or wrapped basket and/or speciality items for the pink auction.
