The cost for the event is $20 per car and includes popcorn, hot dogs and hot chocolate at one of the stops. Prizes will be awarded for completing a bingo, with larger prizes and drawings for teams that complete a blackout. Wear a costume to be entered into a special prize drawing.

Paint the Town Pink was created ten years ago to support breast cancer research at The Hormel Institute, UMN. The Great Paint the Town Pink Challenge was created to make sure that goal continues, especially this year when COVID-19 is preventing many events from taking place.

“We are excited to be a part of this new Paint the Town Pink event and to give people an opportunity to shoot skeet whether they have previous experience or not,” said Dave Baker, Cedar Valley Conservation Club President. “We are partnering with Hunt for a Cure organizers to plan a fun event and we hope to see a lot of people take part.”

Paint the Town Pink has raised over $2 million to further cancer research at The Hormel Institute, UMN. This community support has allowed The Hormel Institute to distribute 15 Paint the Town Pink seed grants for innovative research projects. These are new and exciting ideas that would not be possible without the support of the community. For more details click here.
