FOH issues thank you for success of Breast Fest Walk and Music Festival

To the editor:

The board of From Our Hearts would like to say thank you for everyone's support at the annual Breast Fest Walk and Music Festival held on March 11th. This year we added the Karaoke Fundraising Contest which was a huge success. In particular, we are sending a big thank you to Bobby Mann, Tom and Donna Gauthier and their team, for leading us in the karaoke portion of the event. The volunteers worked six preliminary contests in preparation for the finals at Breast Fest giving up many of their nights. We had a number of contestants in the contest, many of them singing in multiple venues so thank you all for making this happen.

We also want to thank Last Resort, Strange Arrangement, BLT and Idle Speed for giving us fantastic music. We had over 15 vendors serving up great food, crafts and other services. In addition to music and blind auction, we had a visit from the Pink Heals fire truck. Pink Heals' mission is about supporting all illnesses and needs within a community by keeping fundraising in that community. That is exactly what From Our Hearts is about: raising funds to support qualifying residents of the greater Pine Island area with breast cancer screening and treatment.

We are a small organization with a dedicated board of eight people. Breast Fest would not take place without all the volunteers who come out to help us set up, run the event and help take it all down. Many of these volunteers have been helping us for years! There are too many of you to name, but please know we are sending a huge heartfelt thank you.
