The Best Kept Secret is Back April 22nd

The 11th Annual Best Kept Secret Bra auction will be held Friday, April 22, 2016 at the Richland County Fair Event Center. Every year individuals, organizations, and businesses decorate and donate bras, which are then auctioned off, raising funds for the Cancer Coalition Aid Fund (CCAF). The CCAF offers assistance to patients receiving cancer treatment through the Sidney Health Center and are specifically designated to assist with living expenses during treatment and provide cancer screening in Richland, McCone, Dawson, Wibaux, Prairie, and Fallon Counties. None of the money raised is used to pay for administrative costs and is made possible through partnership with the Foundation for Community Care.

For those who are interested in donating a themed bra, registration forms can be picked up and returned to the Richland County Health Department (RCHD). Registration forms are due as soon as possible and all entries must be submitted to the RCHD by April 19th. A detailed description of the items to be auctioned must be included and there is a limit of three entries per person, organization, or business.

But, there are other ways to get involved as well; stopping by the Foundation to make direct donations to the CCAF for Community Care at 221 2nd St. NW in Sidney. Volunteers play an important role in making the fundraiser happen and anyone interested in volunteering should contact the RHCD. Other ways to show your support are through sponsorship, donating items for the Silent Auction, and, of course, turning out for the Best Kept Secret around! Anyone who would like to donate items to the Silent Auction can bring them to the RCHD or call and make arrangements to have them picked up by April 20th.

Registration will begin at 6:00pm and the auction will begin at 7:00pm. Appetizers will be served and Rick from R.K. Auction will once again be donating his time as Auctioneer. Music will begin at 9:00pm, provided by DJ Nate McMillen.

To donate items, volunteer, or for more information, contact Heather Nevins with the Montana Comprehensive Cancer Control Program at the RHCD by calling 406-433-2207 or stop by 1201 West Holly Suite #1, Sidney, MT 59270.
