VFW Ladies Auxiliary raise $4,000 for local patients
The Ladies Auxiliary of the Plover Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 10262 held a Breast Cancer Fundraiser on Thursday, June 21. The event raised $4,000 to promote breast cancer awareness and assist local patients.
More than 240 attendees had an all-you-can-eat spaghetti dinner prepared by Plover VFW Post 10262 members along with spouses, family and friends of the Ladies Auxiliary, who donated their time in support of the cause.
The fundraiser also featured pink T-shirts and cancer bracelets that were available for purchase, baskets raffles and many more unique single items, including one autographed by Green Bay Packers defensive line-backer Clay Mathews. Conceived by a six-member committee of the Ladies Auxiliary, each having been touch by breast cancer in some aspect of her life, the fundraiser allowed these women to reach out and give back to other breast cancer patients.
All proceeds from the fundraiser will benefit the Oncology Department of Ministry Saint Michael's Hospital in Stevens Point for patient treatments, blankets, wigs and the Look Good-Feel Good program.
