HUNTSVILLE – Pour It Pink, hosted by Huntsville Hospital Foundation, will be held Thursday, Sept. 19, 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. at Stovehouse, 3414 Governors Dr. SW. The event will kick off the 2019 Liz Hurley Ribbon Run, and will feature a special pink drink menu from Pourhouse, exclusive merchandise, music and a reveal of the 2019 race artwork by local artist Renee Prasil.

We can’t wait to celebrate our breast cancer survivors and to kick off the race in a big way at Stovehouse.”
