(ABC 6 News) -- Organizers of Austin's "Paint the Town Pink" program are focusing their efforts on the upcoming 2018 fundraiser, set to officially begin in January.
The program, which began back in 2011, raised more than $300,000 for breast cancer research at the Hormel Institute in 2017, the institute's fundraising director Gail Dennison said.
In total, Paint the Town Pink has raised more than $1.1 million since its inception. Much of the funding goes to cover research projects that Dennison said wouldn't be funded otherwise.
Dennison said they're hoping to raise at least $300,000 next year as well.
The official program dates are listed below:
Paint the Town Pink 2018
January 27-February 11
More information will be posted on the program's Facebook page as its official kickoff nears.
