Pink Out

Here in Winter Park, pink is always in.

Benefiting the Winter Park Memorial Hospital Mammography Scholarship Fund.

The City of Winter Park will “go pink” during September and October. Using a unique approach to breast cancer awareness, Pink Out Winter Park seeks to educate the community about the importance of breast health and promote the prevention of breast cancer for future generations. Through the sale of Pink Out Flamingos, the initiative will raise funds for the Winter Park Memorial Hospital Mammography Scholarship Fund to support women who cannot afford a screening mammogram or further diagnostic testing.

Since 2011, 144 women have received mammograms through the Fund and six women were diagnosed with breast cancer and went on to receive treatment. Your help is needed to continue the momentum of this vital resource. Simply purchase Pink Out Flamingos during the month of September and October or make a donation by clicking on the DONATE box. For as little as $35, you can help a woman in need get her screening mammogram and potentially save another life.

Lend your support and enjoy fun-filled events, purchase a flamingo and encourage women you know to do their breast self exam and get their regular mammogram—all while benefiting a cause that is truly making a difference in the lives of women and their families within our very own community.

Annual Mammograms

Save Lives

Importance of Screening
1 in 8 Women develop breast cancer

A yearly mammogram is the most effective method for detecting breast cancer early, when it is most treatable and beatable. According to the American Cancer Society, a yearly mammogram can identify cancer several years before any symptoms develop, significantly increasing survivability.

Beyond yearly screening mammograms, Winter Park Memorial Hospital offers a wide array of breast services, including:

  • Diagnostic mammograms for women with a current or past breast concern.
  • Ultrasound to learn even more about a breast concern, found on a mammogram or felt by the patient and/or physician.
  • MRI scans, that are used in conjunction with mammograms, for women at high risk of developing breast cancer.
  • Positron Emission Mammography (PEM) to see cancer as small as a grain of rice. (Winter Park Memorial Hospital is the only hospital in the area to offer this technology)

Purchase Your Flamingo

To Pink Out

Winter Park has gone to the birds—flamingos to be exact—and they’re making their way south for Pink Out Winter Park. Show your breast cancer support by purchasing a pink flamingo. For $10, we’ll give you one to keep for yourself to place in your yard, and add another to the growing flock of flamingos on Park Avenue and throughout Winter Park, along with a name tag honoring a survivor or loved one affected by breast cancer.

Proceeds from Pink Out Flamingos benefit the Winter Park Memorial Hospital Mammography Scholarship Fund.

Visit one of our Pink Out Flamingo locations to purchase your flamingo or attend one of our Pink Out Events.

Get a Leg Up on Breast Cancer

Pink Out Turns the City Pink

To kick off Pink Out Winter Park, the city turned bright pink in a dazzling array of pink lights and attempted to reclaim a world record for the most number of people standing on one leg, “like a flamingo.” More than 1,500 people attended the Get a Leg Up on Breast Cancer event to raise awareness for breast cancer. Although we did not break the world record, what we accomplished together was far more inspiring. In one evening, we showed support for each other, celebrated our victories and rallied our community in the battle against this disease. All of the funds raised from the event benefit the Winter Park Memorial Hospital Mammography Scholarship Fund.
