Remember BettyWe are honored to support local charities and non-profits in the community with live, work and play in. Even small businesses can and should do their part to assist those less fortunate among our community.
On a personal level many of us have felt the effect Breast Cancer on women in our midst. Whether a family member or friend this decease has a rippling impact on everyone. That is why on Saturday June 23rd from 1-3:30 PM we are hosting a fund raising event to Benefit the Remember Betty nonprofit. There will be a raffle table, prizes and a fun painting experience (Talking to the Moon) for all attendees with proceeds being donated to Remember Betty.
You have loved the Band: New Kids On The Block, but did you know? After the death of his mother, Betty, from breast cancer in 1999, New Kids On The Block member Danny Wood searched for a way to keep her memory alive. During his break from NKOTB in the 90’s and early 2000’s, he partnered with well-known breast cancer charities to help raise funds for breast cancer research & early detection. The return of NKOTB in 2008 gave Danny a larger audience for the story of his mother and her fight against breast cancer. Fans began walking & raising money directly for these charities at breast cancer awareness races across the US and Canada in 2009. Rallying behind their brother, the members of NKOTB created pink ribbon items to sell during their reunion tour. Using his mother’s memory as inspiration, Danny released a solo album, ‘Stronger: Remember Betty’, with all proceeds being donated directly to a well-known breast cancer charity.
Their mission is to help minimize the financial burden associated with breast cancer for patients & survivors by providing direct financial support to them so that they can focus on recovery & quality of life. Our mission is to make sure that the legacy of Betty Wood lives on.
That is a Mission all of the folks in the Bay Area can support!
