I am teaming up with my friends at George’s Coffee Shop to promote Breast Cancer Awareness month and raise funds for the Breast Cancer 3 Day walk (60 miles for a CURE). I am selling Wine Lights and handmade awareness bracelets during the month of October. Dean and I have a friend, Peter Devereaux, who is battling this disease. Most of us know someone who has been impacted by breast cancer. All proceeds benefit breast cancer research and awareness through the Breast Cancer 3 Day walks.
It would be great if you could share this information on GMG! Stop by for a delicious breakfast and support a great cause this October!! And remember to check the girls this month!!
