Donations from the Pink fundraising in 2011 and 2012 helped support the acquisition of cutting-edge technology for The Hormel Institute’s researchers to use in accelerating discoveries for breast cancer research. Funds from the 2013 and 2014 Paint The Town Pink were distributed in the form of grants to scientists at The Hormel Institute for breast cancer research. Known as “seed grants,” these funds are helping Institute researchers conduct work that will enable them to better seek significantly larger grants for breast cancer research.
Paint The Town Pink steering committee members include representatives from the Austin Bruins, Austin Area Chamber of Commerce, City of Austin, Austin Convention & Visitors Bureau, Austin Area Foundation, Mayo Clinic Health System, Mower County Fair Board, KAAL-TV, Austin Vision 2020 Waterways Committee and The Hormel Institute.
