To the editor:
Thank you, Pine Island, for making the From Our Hearts' 4th Annual Oktober-Breast a huge success! $9,000 was raised to support FOH's mission of providing funding for breast cancer screening and treatment to residents of the greater Pine Island area who are in need.
A big thank you to Miceli's for co-sponsoring this event and the generous donation! Also to the hard-working Miceli's staff!!
Thank you to Strange Arrangement, Blackwater Lite, The Aimee Linn Band and Stringtown for your time and talents, with a special thank you to Rick Russell and Kenny Cox of Stringtown for providing the sound system! Pine Island is so lucky to have wonderful live music please support the musicians that support our community!!
Thank you to the PIE students and their families who won the calendar art contest! They donated the original artwork which was auctioned off with great results! And a big thank you to Wayne DeMeyere who was our awesome auctioneer!
Lastly, thanks to the From Our Hearts Board of Directors and volunteers! This hard-working group is dedicated to the mission of assuring that all people have access to life-saving breast cancer screening and treatment!
It takes an island!
