The 2017 "It's a Breast Thing" Event
“It’s a Breast Thing” 10 Year Anniversary Celebration 2017
It was a fabulous evening welcoming 400 guests to celebrate It’s a Breast Thing's ten year anniversary in support of local breast cancer patients. Always working to help women in need we became a non profit charity in 2010 and began awarding grants to local breast cancer patients for their out of pocket expenses. To date there have been 130 grants awarded.
On October 3rd Eagle Eye Golf Club was full of energy in celebration of what has been accomplish and what is still to come in the future for local patients. It was an evening with many familiar activities that guests have gathered to enjoy over the years. The theme for the bra decorating contest this year was Glamorous Golden Age of Hollywood and the glitz and glamor was amazing as former calendar models/breast cancer survivors modeled the bras for our guest to admire before they voted and bid on their favorite! The top 12 chosen will be featured in the 2018 IBT Calendar. Our health related exhibitors were full of the latest information in health care as well as fun pink wigs, massage and chiropractic adjustments.
The evening continued with a video highlighting the history of IBT and the impact on the community. Bob Howe, was the auctioneer for the evening and kept the fun alive and donations flowing with the auctioning off of an MSU package, trips to Florida and Torch Lake, wine and local dining and services from a local DJ…….. to name a few.
Our guests enjoyed refreshments, champagne and chocolates and lots of fundraising to help It’s a Breast Thing continue its mission…………to enrich the lives of local breast cancer patients on their journey to better health.
