Circle of Hope has many missions. In September and October they are collecting donations for local metastatic breast cancer research. You may donate money to the organization and get a tax exempt receipt. Only 501 (c) 3 organizations can give these receipts. Ask for the tax exempt number.
Circle of Hope has many announcements to make in September and October. Stay tuned for more good works locally.
Sidelines: Circle of Hope Board members did a booth in Art in the Bayfront Park in August. Children made bracelets for themselves, made cards for patients, and loved the booth.
One of the Circle of Hope teams, The Many Faces of Breast Cancer won bronze metals at the dragon boat races. It was their best rowing year ever! Next year it is going to be a Country Western theme for food and for a fall concert! Survivors should contact Peggy.
