The Jayne and Donna Breast Cancer Fund, Inc. is proud to announce the 1st annual “Grillin’ for our Girls” BBQ cook-off and silent auction to be held at Community Park in Lisle, IL. Aug. 14th, 2010. Tickets for this event are on sale now through our website or by calling the number below. Admission includes all you can eat BBQ from any or all the professional and amateur cooks including corn on the cob, baked beans, bread and more. Entertainment for this event is being provided by Trio, Back Ally Band and Chicago blues recording artist, Sharon Lewis. Don’t leave the kids at home on this day. There will be games, jumping gym, face painting, clowns and enough hot dogs and cheeseburgers to keep them happy for the day.
The goal of this fund raiser is to bring immediate help and support to the men and women who suffer from breast cancer now. Although research is most important to finding a cure for future victims of this disease, we at The Jayne and Donna Breast Cancer Fund, Inc. believe there is a more infinite need to help those in current crisis. All proceeds from this event will be donated to Breast Cancer Society, Gilda’s Club of Chicago, IL. and Sisters Network, Inc. of Chicago, IL. These are three hands on, street level, grass roots organizations that provide help and hope to both men and women who need it the most and are beyond the help of research.
Steve Marney, President of the organization, says “The statistics are staggering! One out of every eight women who live to the age of 85 will develop breast cancer sometime in their life. If you have not lost someone you love to breast cancer yet, you will in the future.” He goes on to say, “It’s about time that men get more involved in raising funds to help our precious women and ourselves. Our wonderful women have been active for many years with the Susan G. Koman Walk, the Relay for Life and many other breast cancer fund raising activities. Now we have the “Grillin’ for our Girls” fund raiser. This is a way for us men to say, we’re with you, ladies!”
