GREENFIELD — It’s billed as “Girls Night Out 2016, Pink PJ Party with a twist.” The twist is — wait for it — men are invited.

Robert Flanagan, manager of the Greenfield Kroger store, is the driving force behind the event that supports local women’s health initiatives.

“It will be interesting to see how many men participate,” Flanagan said. “We will prove that only brave men wear pink.”

The Girls Night Out Pink P.J. Party is in its third year as a fundraiser for the James T. Anderson, M.D. Center for Women’s Health. With a small army of 12 or so volunteers — and more than 40 the night of the event — from the ranks of Kroger employees and the Women’s Health Center, Flanagan coordinates this annual event, which takes place this year Friday at Adaggio’s, 5999 W. Memory Lane, Greenfield.

Flanagan is proud of the fact the money raised benefits county residents. Flanagan touts the fact the James T. Anderson M.D. Center for Women’s Health, named for a former local Greenfield physician, follows its patients from diagnosis through treatment and doesn’t turn them away because of lack of money.

Beginning at 5 p.m. and running until 11:30 p.m., an evening at the Girls Night Out Pink P.J. Party promises to be an evening packed with fun.
