The upcoming fundraiser is Wednesday, Jan. 30 at the Alibi. Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer among men. 

According to the American Cancer Society, about 1 man in 9 will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime. Prostate cancer develops mainly in older men and African-American men. The average age at the time of diagnosis is 66 years old.

Prostate cancer can present unique challenges to patients and physicians alike. There are differing opinions about the age men should begin prostate cancer screenings. Unlike other cancers that have a specific road map for treatment, prostate cancer generally revolves around opinions and biases.

 Those are some of the reasons why the Pink Nail Society works tirelessly to promote awareness about prostate cancer. As the Pink Nail Society continues its mission to give prostate cancer the finger, it is holding a country-music themed fundraiser.  

It takes place on Wednesday, Jan. 30 at 6 p.m. at Georgie’s Alibi Monkey Bar in Wilton Manors. 

The event will feature live performances, a 50/50 raffle, a photo booth, silent auction, and more.  A $20 donation is needed for VIP access. The silent auction opens to everyone from 7-10 p.m.

The mission of the Pink Nail Society is to raise awareness about prostate cancer in Fort Lauderdale and the surrounding areas, collaborate with community partners, and contribute money to prostate cancer research.

Georgie’s Alibi Monkey Bar is located at 2266 Wilton Drive in Wilton Manors. Visit PinkNailSociety.orgfor additional information.
