The Austin Bruins, in conjunction with The Hormel Institute, have announced the Black and Gold Gala, to be held on January 31 at the Austin Country Club. 

The gala will be held from 5:30-10 p.m. and will be a black-tie event that will include dinner, speeches from special guests, a social/dance to end the night, and much more.

“We couldn’t be more thankful to the Austin Bruins for their continued support of The Hormel Institute which has proven to be exceptional,” said Daneka Wiechmann, Paint the Town Pink coordinator, in a press release Wednesday. “This year they wanted to help even more with not only Paint The Rink Pink, but their new ‘Black and Gold Gala’ event to help raise funds for HI (Hormel Institute). We are excited as every dollar raised will help support PTTP seed grants helping our scientists strive to find new and better answers to cancer.”
