Raffle to help support breast cancer patients
PORTSMOUTH — My Breast Cancer Support, an independent New Hampshire nonprofit organization, recently announced that it has partnered with EZ Bikes and Scooters of Exeter, to raffle off a MIO 50 Scooter to raise funds to support breast cancer patients throughout the Greater Seacoast New Hampshire/Maine area.
This is the first year that the two organizations have teamed together to create what they anticipate to be a very successful fundraiser that could raise thousands of dollars for local patients and their family members.
“My Breast Cancer Support helps hundreds of breast cancer patients every year with household needs, financial assistance, family support, comforting gifts, wellness programs and more,” said Jennie Halstead, executive director of My Breast Cancer Support. “We were thrilled when EZ Bikes and Scooters offered to support our efforts to help eliminate some of the day-to-day stress that patients have to deal with when they should be focusing their energy on getting well.”
“We are proud to support the efforts of My Breast Cancer Support,” said Theresa Hemenway, owner of EZ Bikes and Scooters. “We all know someone who has been touched by breast cancer and the programs that the organization provides help patients today – when they need it the most. We also appreciate that the money My Breast Cancer Support raises stays local, and as a homegrown local business that means a lot to us.
The Scooter Raffle will take place through Oct. 31, 2015. Tickets are $10 per chance or three chances for $20 and may be purchased online at www.mybreastcancersupport.org. A list of locations where tickets can be purchased in person is also available on the website.
