Runnings in Hettinger combined several fun things for a good cause in a short time.

On Wednesday, Oct. 23 from 5 to 7 p.m. was “Lady’s Night,” said Kathy Nagel. “You had to wear pink to support breast cancer awareness, and then you were given a bag for purchases. Everything in the special bag received a 15 percent discount.

There were also drawings, door prizes, and wine and food sampling. Amanda Rymer (CHECK SPELLING) won the grand prize of a trip for two.

“We’re considered a ‘medium’ store, and Runnings has done this for a few years in the larger stores,” said Nagel. “I just decided we’d give it a try.”

The event was a great success, with more than 175 people coming through in slightly over two hours, including this group of hunters who come to Hettinger every year. To get their pink bag, they had to wear pink and took it to the extreme.

“The hunters seemed to have a really good time,” said Nagel. “They helped pass things out, and really got into the theme.” (As evidenced by their hats.) Nagel said she hopes to make this an annual event.

A portion of the evenings proceeds will to to the American Cancer Society
