Last year’s concert raised over $15,000 for local breast cancer support programs. This year’s money raised by the event will help the following organizations:
Betty J. Borry Breast Cancer Retreats which provide adventure retreat weekends for women living after breast cancer.
On Belay, a local non-profit that supports children of those suffering from cancer or other life-threatening diseases. The organization was started by concert founder and New Hampshire Volunteer of the Year, Crescentia Healy True, who sadly lost her battle with breast cancer in 2006.
BreastCancerStories.com, an online community where people touched by breast cancer can share their experiences with loved ones and with one another.
