2015 Bras for a Cause

We had an amazing event on Saturday, October 3 at Rochester Madza! We raised over $5,800! Many families and supporters enjoyed the Big Event bounce house; a turtle and kestrel from Zollman Zoo; fabulous balloon art from Dr. Kurland; mini pumpkin decorating; and a fun, pink photo booth. Breast cancer surivor Officer Carrie Koehler dropped by with coloring pages and police-badge stickers for the kids! Our beautfiul pink-ribbon merchandise from SideOut Rochester was a big hit! Children loved the temporary glitter tattoos from A Child's Kingdom, which raised $80 for Join the Journey. Mac's Mobile Food Truck made sure everyone got a delicious lunch!


From 12:30pm to 1:30pm, the Mayor of Rochester, Ardell Brede, and local radio celebrities Julie Jones from Fox 102.5, Tom Garrett from 97.5 Pulse FM and Tracy McCray from KROC AM bravely volunteered to be the targets of our "Pie In the Face" throwing fundraiser, which raised over $200 for local breast cancer survivors. It was a sticky, fun mess!
