Third-party Events Raise Over $30,000!

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2015

In just a few short weeks, we’ve received over $30,000 from our amazing third-party donors! The Bass River Tennis Club started us off with a fabulous tennis tournament that netted the ESSCO-MGH Breast Cancer Research Fund over $8,000. Then the Pingree Girls’ Hockey Team held a benefit game and raised $2500! Next came the Reading High School Volleyball team. They raised $300! The Women’s Committee of the Meadow Brook Golf Club held their 5th Annual benefit bringing us $13,200! Shortly after, the Sharon Country Club held their 7th Annual golf tournament and raised just under $6,000! We’re looking forward to the September 13th Friends of Reading 8th Annual Tennis Tournament! It’s not only fun, it’s hugely successful!

We are incredibly grateful to all of our third-party donors for their ongoing commitment and generosity.

If you’d like to run a benefit for the ESSCO-MGH Breast Cancer Research Fund, let us know! We can supply brochures and goodies for your gift bags! One hundred percent of all money raised goes directly to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. We do not take a penny of your donation for our fundraising or administrative purposes!

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!
