Bust a Move Recap- over $38,000 raised!

Over 400 people attended Bust a Move on Friday, October 5, at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art, and helped raise over $38,000 for our programs and services for breast cancer survivors in our community. What an inspirational evening. Thanks to everyone who was a part of making it a success.

To help celebrate the 5th anniversary of the event, we unveiled a 5th Anniversary calendar, highlighting some of the most popular pieces from past years. Those are available for sale for $20 at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art’s gift shop and at our office. You may email arecker@cancer-services.org to order one as well. They are beautiful.

Again, we could not do what we do without the generous support of our community. We hope you will join us next year!
