Proceeds to benefit local Breast Cancer awarness and Multiple Sclerosis.

The Breast Cancer proceeds help fund free mammograms for women in need, women for whom early detection would not otherwise be possible.

Multiple Sclerosis funds will be used to help locals (without insurance) with MS pay for medicine used to help their flare ups. Also, to create awareness amongst the community as to what Multiple Sclerosis is and how it effects not only the individual with the disease...but for those who are caregivers to those with MS.
