For the past twelve years, Chuck Bowe and his crew of workers and corporate sponsors at Grand Wine and Spirits have raised thousands of dollars through their Pink Ribbon Campaign to benefit TBBCF. In 2020 TBBCF honored Bowe for his decade of contributions and awarded him membership to the 27th Mile Club, established to recognize those who routinely go above and beyond on a regular basis to help the foundation.
The Great Neck Country Club Women’s Association has raised more than $60,000 over the last several years for the Terri Brodeur Breast Cancer Foundation at their yearly golf tournament. In 2017 it was inducted into the TBBCF 27th Mile Club, a designation given to those who go “above and beyond ” in their efforts to raise money for breast cancer research.
When you consider that most breast cancers (80%) occur in women over the age of 50, that 63% of Realtors in Eastern CT are female, and that 56% of female Realtors are over 50, it’s no surprise that breast cancer is a top concern for members of the Eastern CT Association of Realtors. The Affiliate Committee first suggested doing a Spirit of Pink Wine Tasting fundraiser in 2014, and since then TBBCF has become a top recipient of ECAR’s fundraising efforts.
Steak Night was a success! I would like to thank Eric, Polly, Cheryl, Rick, and Rod at the Eye for all your hard work in making this a success. Thank you to the Posse for always coming together to pull off a great event and thank you to all that attended.
As you know, I am a breast cancer survivor and TBBCF became very near and dear to me 15 years ago. It truly touches my heart when I see the generosity that surrounds this event. The Posse and TBBCF will continue to give 100% to breast cancer research until we have found a cure. Thank you again and hope to see you all next year. (Source: Pamela Morris Watt)
