Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

Thanks to the efforts of The Bass River Tennis Club and their 2nd Annual Ladies’ Night Out Tennis Tournament, our fund received a $6,170.00 donation!   This amount brings the total donation from The Bass River Tennis Club to $9500 in two years!  This is fabulous!

We Did It!

Thursday, October 20th, 2011

Preliminary figures are in, and it looks like our 16th Annual benefit was our most successful to date!  We raised more than $225,000 and the money is still pouring in.  It’s raining $10s and $20s and then some! 

And the best part?  One hundred percent of the money raised goes directly to breast cancer research.  We don’t take one penny off the top.  How many charities can say that?  And mean it!

Stay tuned for more great news!

Thanks to the Stow Women’s Club, the ESSCO-MGH Breast Cancer Research Fund can now add a Walk-A-Thon to our growing list of successful third party benefits!

On a gorgeous Saturday this June, the Stow Women’s Club walked from Stow, MA, to Concord, MA, in an effort to raise $1000 for our fund.  They were so successful in their first endeavor that they garnered more than $2300 for the fund, and the checks are still coming in!
