Think Pink Trivia Night
Annually, CBS Saint Louis radio stations Y98, Fresh 102.5, and KMOX come together to recognize the brave women involved in the fight against breast cancer and to support National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Drawing over 450 participants in 2012, the Think Pink Trivia night has thus far served as a catalyst for awareness and fundraising efforts throughout our community and is expected only to grow in 2013.
We invite you to join in our ambitions this October for the Think Pink Trivia Night presented by The Physicians of Saint Louis University and Diet Pepsi. The event, hosted by Y98′s Guy Phillips, is sure to be an evening of food, fun, and fabulously entertaining trivia, made better only by its collected efforts towards an honorable cause.
This year’s event will consist of 10 brain teasing rounds of trivia with a grand prize to be awarded to the winning team. You may also choose to participate in the evening’s silent auction for more opportunities to win fantastic prizes!
Tables start at only $300 for a team of 10, with 100% of proceeds to be donated to the Saint Louis University Cancer Center. Your admission does include complimentary beer, wine, soda, and water. Outside food will also be permitted. Participants must be 21 and older. Valet services will be provided by Midwest Valet Parking.

About our beneficiary:
The Saint Louis University Cancer Center (SLUCC) was established 2002 and from inception, our purpose has been to help facilitate the growth of both the clinical and research programs and to advance cutting edge care on the medical campus related to cancer.
The SLUCC has grown to become the second largest cancer center in the region, with more than 70 physicians dedicated to cancer care. Under the direction of Dr. Mark Varvares, the SLU Cancer Center focuses on individual treatment plans, with specialties in head and neck, brain, skin, breast, liver, lung, colon and bone cancers, thyroid cancer, men’s cancers (testicular and prostate) and women’s cancers (cervical, endometrial and ovarian) as well as leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma.
Distinctive Services, Partnerships and Community Programs

- In November 2012, We opened the region’s first comprehensive Outpatient Bone Marrow Transplant Center, allowing some cancer patients the ability to return home during treatment rather than face a lengthy inpatient hospital stay.
- The Saint Louis University Cancer Center is home to Dr. Suzanne Mahon RN DNSc AOCN APNG, Missouri’s only Licensed Advanced Practice Nurse in Genetics. Dr. Mahon manages the Hereditary Cancer Program, providing free genetic counseling and testing to individuals with a hereditary risk of cancer.

CCPRO addresses breast and prostate cancer disparity in North St. Louis city and county by working closely with neighborhood, religious and community groups to bring cancer education and screenings to underserved, high risk populations. In 2012 CCRPO provided 85 free health screening events throughout the community.
- Saint Louis University Cancer Center’s Music Therapy program, and its partnership with the Saint Louis Symphony, has been noted in local and national news outlets. The Saint Louis University Cancer Center is the first and only cancer center in the area with a fulltime, board-certified music therapist for patients and caregivers. Director Dr. Mark Varvares was awarded the 2102 Music Therapy Advocate of the Year by the American Music Therapy Association.
- Cancer Information Center-The Cancer Information Center is staffed by nurses who serve as a supportive hub, connecting cancer patients and families with free services and resources related to cancer prevention and management, including smoking cessation classes, yoga, specialized support groups and other needs.
- SMILE (SLU Making It a Little Easier) is a newly created Cancer Patient Assistance Fund, providing emergency financial support to cancer patients during their treatment. SMILE, supported entirely through donations, is administered by the Cancer Center’s social services team.
- SLU Cancer Center offers some of the most sophisticated cancer screening, diagnostic and treatment tools including an advanced Breast Imaging Center, an endoscopy suite, computed tomography (CT) scans, positron emission tomography (PET), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and the Cyberknife, a non-invasive alternative to surgery for the treatment of both cancerous and non-cancerous tumors.
