WEST POINT, Miss.-North Mississippi Medical Center-West Point is hosting a silent auction through Oct. 31 to benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

Bids are being accepted on a wide array of items, including pink cleats signed by Mississippi State University head football coach Dan Mullen and a pink MSU #36 cap in memory of Nick Bell. The cap and cleats are like those worn by the MSU football team during the MSU vs. Tennessee game. Other silent auction items include hand-crocheted blankets, a purse, candles, photo album, original artwork and photo frames.

“Our facility is a proud recipient of Susan G. Komen for the Cure grant funds to provide free mammograms and breast ultrasounds for women who have limited or no income,” said Teresa Johnson, director of NMMC-West Point’s Radiology Department. “This is one way that our staff can give back to help people in our community prevent, detect and fight breast cancer.”

Bidding ends at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 31, with items going to the highest bidder. For more information, contact Johnson at (662) 495-2331.
