WASHINGTON (WUSA) - Breast cancer survivors, friends, and even members of the Washington Redskins joined D.C. area anchorwomen, and anchormen for the annual Newsbabes Bash for Breast Cancer on Tuesday night.

The night was emotional, and powerful for all who came together to help raise awareness for the second leading cause of cancer death in women, breast cancer. The crowd, which could be described as a sea of pink, was energetic and full of excitement at the newly opened Howard Theatre located at 620 T Street in Washington, D.C.

"This is beyond what we imagined four years ago when we started this great event. It's a great night with men and women working together to support a common cause, and save lives," explained 9NEWS Now anchor, Andrea Roane.

The event raised money for the continued success of The GWmammovan, which is an exceptional mobile mammography service that provides free mammograms to women in our region regardless of their ability to pay.

9NEWS Now anchor's Anita Brikman, Kristen Berset, Surae Chinn, Leslie Foster, Anny Hong, Andrea Roane, Monika Samtani, Derek McGinty, Dave Owens, and Mike Hydeck were all in attendance, and rockin' the best and brightest shades of pink from head to toe.
