October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and the local nonprofit organization, From Our Heart, will have two events during this month. There will be an ongoing event at many local businesses called Pine Island Pink Bra Supporters. Make a donation and get your name on a Pink Bra for the month. You can make a donation "in honor of," "in memory of" or "just to support!" Be sure to look and ask for a Pink Bra to make your donation.
On Oct. 20, from 12-8 p.m., From Our Heart will be at Miceli's for OctoberBreast, debuting its 2014 calendar with original artwork by Pine Island Elementary students. There will be live music and live auctions. Save the date for a fun afternoon while helping support From Our Heart and breast cancer.
