More than 100 Grassroots Partners held events to support PA breast cancer survivors in October!
Here are some of the events we’ve been following:
2013 was a busy year for Ride the Trail to a Cure and the Grey Mare Society as they held 3 events to benefit the PA Breast Cancer Coalition! The Clinton Anderson Ball Toss was a huge success, held over the summer at a Harrisburg Horse Show and lead by Linda Golden. September was the New Millford Ride, organized by B.J. Carey at Pie in the Sky Orchard, Susquehanna County, and October was host to the ride in Mt. Holly Springs, Cumberland County, where coordinator JoAnn Gilkey took the reins. These tremendous events contributed over $17,000 to the PBCC to help serve women and their families battling breast cancer!
Members of the Garden Spot Motorcycle Club were revved up for this year’s 5th Annual Ride to Help, held in Adamstown, Pa. The event featured not only a motorcycle ride, but also featured a full-on pig roast party with games, food, drinks, a live band and even a dunk tank! Proceeds collected totaled an incredible $4,000–their largest donation yet! Since 2009, this annual event has contributed over $15,600 to the PA Breast Cancer Coalition!
Red Land High School Girls Soccer in York County recently held a “Pink Out” game which raised $1,000 for the PA Breast Cancer Coalition! Both the JV and Varsity squads worked with the soccer boosters to sport pink and raise awareness on the field. The girls also hosted a bake sale, sold t-shirts, held raffles and accepted donations to support our cause.
