Small Blessings

Thank you to Laurie Phillips of Holy Cloaks, who creates stunning custom stoles for clergy in our area. She has created a breast cancer awareness stole called ‘Laurie’s Hope.’ We have received a $50 donation for her first sold piece with her intention to donate likewise for each stole sold.

CHEER-filled Charity

Driven by the unbridled energy and enthusiasm of their students, the Rochester and East locations of NY Icons Cheer combined their efforts once again to raise money for the Breast Cancer Coalition. Icons, your gift of $3251 helps make all of what we do possible.

In Honor of Mom

In Doris’ name, they have donated $1040 to our Coalition! They were helped in their effort by friends/business owners Roots of Sonnenblume antiques, who conducted a successful basket raffle.

Get THIS Straight!

Each October, this is good news for the Breast Cancer Coalition, thanks to the generosity of Dr. Terry Giangreco and his staff at Get It Straight Orthodontics. 100% of the fees from all lost or broken retainers benefits the Coalition.

Passion, Compassion, and True Artistry

It’s Quite Extraordinary

For(e) A Good Cause

Beautiful Sodus Bay Heights Golf Club is typically the site of many charity tournaments throughout the year, including one produced just for our Coalition by Sharon Lilla and the women of the Club.
