An Amazing 10th Year Event For Best Kept Secret Bra Auction – $43,000 Raised In 2015
The 10th annual Best Kept Secret Bra Auction was held on Friday May 1st, at the Richland County Events Center. Funds from the event go directly to the Cancer Coaltion Fund, held by the Foundation for Community Care.
The Cancer Coalition Fund was originally created to help individuals offset costs associated with critical cancer screening tests. Two years ago an assistance account was also created with the fund. The money helps individuals in Richland County who are currently undergoing cancer treatment. The purpose of the fund is to offset the extremely high medical and household expenses associated with cancer treatment. Many of our friends and neighbors undergoing cancer treatment have benefitted from the assistance. To date, 58 individuals have received a total of $41,250 in funds to help offset costs.
The Foundation for Community Care administers the Cancer Coalition Fund. Applications for assistance can be found at Richland County Health Department, Foundation for Community Care and through the Sidney Health Center Cancer Center.
Each and every year, the community shows it’s unending support for those who are affected by cancer.
The 2015 event raised over $43,000 to help offset the cost of cancer care for local families and individuals. A BIG thank you to all who came out to support or sponsor, volunteer or design an item for auction.
