2023 Paint the Town Pink kicks off in January

(ABC 6 News) – The Hormel Institute is gearing up for 2023 Paint the Town Pink. PTTP is an annual campaign to raise funds for cancer research at The Hormel Institute.

“We hope every individual who donates and every organizer who works hard to raise funds for PTTP knows how important their support is to move cancer research forward. They are on the front lines with our researchers as together we work to prevent and control cancer and find better therapies to treat it,” said Gail Dennison, Director of Development and External Relations.

Since it started in 2011, PTTP has raised more than $2 million for cancer research at The Hormel Institute.

“The community of Austin and communities throughout the region are amazing in their generous support of this important work. The Hormel Institute thanks each and every person who contributes.  We all know every dollar, every cancer, and every person matters,” says Dennison.

The 2023 PTTP event lineup includes returning favorites like Plunging for Pink and Fishing for a Cure. There are also several new events, including Shooters for Hooters and Ice Golf.
