Walking through a colossal archway of pink balloons, sophomore Christopher Garcia took part spectating in Stone Oak’s fourth annual ‘Girl’s Night Out.’; an event that featured delicious hors d’oeuvres, live music, and complimentary gifts from promoting businesses. All to support the North Central Baptist Hospital and Baptist Breast Center.

A dome of pink balloons is set up as an entrance way for the event.

“First of all, I was overwhelmed with a lot of pink and then I just went around, signed up for things and supported the cause by promoting other peoples businesses regarding cancer awareness. It’s awesome because it helps people not just affected by breast cancer but cancer in general,” Garcia said.

The event had an upbeat and lively feel thanks to the musical stylings of San Antonio natives, E7 band. The Trio was more than excited to be playing for Stone Oak residents while supporting victims of the illness as well.

“It was so much fun getting to see all of the survivors strut their stuff in the fashion show and playing for a ton of new fans! We did not directly contribute to the cause besides playing for an extremely discounted rate – so I guess our time as volunteers for some of us was our contribution…  sometimes people who have been through a life changing event just need their mind taken away from it momentarily and I hope we provided that relief,” said drummer Edmund Perez Jr.

Despite the amount of joy the event brought to the crowd, compassion was felt throughout the evening. Left and right, survivors and others who have been affected by breast cancer were seen comforting one another and finding solace among the community.

“A lot of people were really, really happy and they acted like they didn’t have any cancer; they acted like normal human beings they didn’t even acknowledge their breast cancer… I think it made them feel loved, they know that they aren’t the only ones going through that struggle, there are people around that wanna help you know like all the different facilities, the fashion show and the sponsors, it all showed that everyone cares about them,” said junior Amy Junjbluth.
