MACON, Ga. -- It was all pink at the "Bunko for Breast Cancer" event at the Al Sihah Shrine Park in Macon.

On Friday the local organization United in Pink held its annual "Bunko for Breast Cancer" night to raise funds to give women with breast cancer free support.

Executive Director Laura Paxton said that she and her mom started the organization when her mom was diagnosed with breast cancer 14 years ago.

It's meant to be both a night of healing and hope, because when breast cancer survivors meet, it's an encouraging moment.

The organization has raised between $60,000 and $70,000 through this event in previous years.
