Albany Pink raises over $66K

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany Pink has presented a check for $66,072 raised by this spring's fundraiser to Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital.

Organizers say these funds provide medication, travel and lodging expenses as well as assistance with utilities, rent and past due mortgages. Donations were also made by Sam's Club and Pfizer, which helped sponsor the event.

Employees of BMW of Albany started Albany Pink in 2012, when they realized the need and potential for this type of event in Albany.
BMW of Albany works to make life batter for breast cancer patients in the area with their work through Albany Pink.
