Pink in the Night

Pink lights at the Bell Tower
Pink in the Night is a month-long cancer-awareness campaign in October. It includes El Dorado County businesses illuminating their storefronts with strands of pink lights (provided by Images of Hope) symbolizing the community's united fight against cancer.

Images of Hope will also install a piece of "All Colors All Cancers" themed artwork downtown at the Bell Tower designed and fabricated by Andrew Vonderschmitt.

The City of Placerville approved a proclamation in 2023 for Images of Hope. See >>

In addition, our Cabinet Member Mary Bist has created and placed pink ribbons along Highway 50 in 2023!

Make sure you come downtown during October, 2024, to see the pink lights, the pink ribbons, and the art installation at the Bell Tower!
