5th Annual Bust a Move

We are partnering with The Fort Wayne Derby Girls to host the 5th Annual Bust a Move auction and fundraiser to benefit women with breast cancer in our community on Friday, October 5, 2012, at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art from 6:00 – 9:00 PM.

For Bust a Move, local artists, breast cancer survivors, and derby girls volunteer their talents and their bodies to create unique, inspiring cast representations of the female bust and the emotions associated with breast cancer. Local artists modified the casts, using various artistic mediums, to create outstanding works of art. The art pieces will be auctioned at the event.

Join us for the 5th Annual Bust a Move. The event includes food, cocktails, entertainment, and a live auction of truly unique and inspiring works of art – all fashioned from the busts of breast cancer survivors and Derby Girls.

Tickets are available online at eventbrite.com.

Blue Ball Open Raises $8,600 for CSNI

Kent Hormann and Cynthia Cornwell had ambitious goals- to organize a golf outing to raise money and awareness for Prostate Cancer. And they were wildly successful. With the support of corporate sponsors, including Lutheran Health Network, the first annual Blue Ball Open, which was held on Saturday, August 14, successfully raised $8,600 for Cancer Services.

On Wednesday, October 20, Kent Hormann and Joe Dorko, newly named CEO of Lutheran Health Network, presented our CEO, Dianne May, with the proceeds from the event. We’d like to thank Kent, Cynthia, Joe and all those involved in making this event successful.

Cancer Day At Kroger- Wednesday, October 6

Join us, along with Kroger, The American Cancer Society, Lutheran Hospital and Parkview Hospital, on Wednesday, October 6 for the 32nd Annual Cancer Day.

The Kroger Scott’s Cancer Day 2010 event will include 19 Kroger, Scott’s and Owens stores in Northeast Indiana. Kroger will donate 2% of sales on October 6th to the ACS and CSNI. And you can help raise more money by contributing your change by rounding up your purchase from Wednesday, October 6th to Saturday, October 16th. Round up proceeds last year totaled nearly $25,000, split between ACS and CSNI, and Kroger officials hope to raise considerably more than $25,000 this year. “Kroger Scott’s Cancer Day 2009” total proceeds were $87,377.88. Over 31 years, the annual Cancer Day event has raised $4,403,878 for local cancer organizations.
