To the editor
On behalf of the From Our Hearts' Board of Directors, I would like to extend a heartfelt "thank you" to the Pine Island community for its support! With your help, we are able to continue our mission of providing funding for breast cancer screening and treatment to those on Pine Island who cannot afford it. Since last March, we have paid for 100 mammograms and treatment for two women. You are helping us save lives, the lives of our neighbors, friends and family!
A special thank you to Laura Smith and Bernard Smith of Bert's Bar and Grill! In February they held the Island Pirate Fest and Pirates' Ball and donated over 10,000 to FOH!
The 12th Annual Breast Fest raised $25,000! What an incredible display of community support! Many thanks to the FOH Board of Directors and volunteers! Also thank you to our business supporters - Bert's, Miceli's, Cambio Dermatology and Four Winds Marina! Thanks to Yard Dog Charlie for providing entertainment on the walk route, Bob Davis and Dave Washburn for supplying the sound system and Juanita D'Anna for donating the special walker bracelets. Thanks also to Spyrnal and Associates for providing a water station and Mike Shevlin and Art's Produce for providing breakfast for the walkers. Thank you to the many PI businesses and artist that donated items for our silent auction and walker raffles.
Lastly, a very special thank you to the Elk's Club - they have been very generous to allow us to use their facility.
From Our Hearts President
