BREAST CANCER FUNDRAISER
Get an early start on holiday card and gift shopping and at the same time help out South Miami Hospital’s Your Bosom Buddies Breast Cancer Support Group. Amy’s Hallmark, 14765 S. Dixie Hwy., Palmetto Bay, will host its second annual fundraiser from 6 to 9 p.m. on Sept. 12. Proceeds from raffle drawings and a percentage of all sales will go to Your Bosom Buddies.
“Some of our customers approached us and asked how we could help out this worthwhile organization and we didn’t hesitate to do our part,” said Bill Hochstetter, owner of Amy’s Hallmark, in a release. “When a woman is diagnosed with and being treated for breast cancer they are so overwhelmed with the medical treatments and focus to just get better. A support group like Your Bosom Buddies allows them to find other people to share their fears, struggles and hopes with and it’s a group we are honored to be a part of and support in any way we can.”
The support group, located in South Miami Hospital, meets monthly at the Victor E. Clarke Education Center. Also offered is the valuable “Buddies for You” buddy program for newly diagnosed women.
Established in 1980, Amy’s Hallmark is a locally owned and operated card and gift shop that offers trendy designs, ornaments, gourmet candies and chocolates, jewelry, and a large collection of collegiate gifts.
