Face Off Against Breast Cancer, a community effort

Letters to the Editor

— The 2013 Face Off Against Breast Cancer committee would like to say a big thank you to everyone in this generous community for supporting our event this January.

With the help of over 80 community business sponsors, we covered 100% of the costs of running this year’s tournament, and raised over $60,000 for breast cancer patients via the statewide Cancer Patient Support Program (CPSP).

We are grateful for the support of so many local restaurants, businesses, and individuals who donated everything from money and products to the cause—and services from refereeing, giving massages, and playing rock and roll. A list of all the supporting organizations is posted online at www.faceoffagainstbreastcancer.org.

We also thank Kathy McBeth and the CPSP staff for the important counseling, nutritional support, and emergency fund they administer, all free of charge to patients. Over its 14 year history, the tournament has now raised over $330,000 for charity.

On behalf of the 1 in 8 women who will face a breast cancer diagnosis in her lifetime, thank you.
