On February 13th, 500 of New York’s leading professionals came together at Lucky Strike Lanes & Lounge to support Breastcancer.org. In a unique event complete with pink bowling pins, and pink bowling shoe laces, attendees were able to support a great cause by sponsoring a lane, bidding on a silent auction item, or just purchasing a spectator ticket. We-Care.com was grateful to be able to field an entire bowling team in support of Breastcancer.org. The team came ready to bowl, and a lack of skill was made up for with enthusiasm.

In the end, some pins came down, and like everyone in attendance, the We-Care.com team had a great time! The most exciting and important aspect of the event was the fundraising. The community of supporters came together and was able to generate over $250,000 for Breastcancer.org. The donations raised from the 4th Annual Bowling for Breastcancer.org will help to provide the most reliable, complete, and up-to-date information about breast cancer to thousands of women around the world.
Breastcancer.org was started in 1999 as a resource for women dealing with breast cancer in all stages. Founded by renowned oncologist, Dr. Marisa Weiss, the organization has grown to include an active community of more than 120,000 individuals. These men and women who make up Breastcancer.org‘s community communicate and support one another on a vast array of message boards and communication tools. But Breastcancer.org is not only a destination for community, it is also a great resource with a wealth of information on topics ranging from symptoms and diagnosis, to treatment and day-to-day matters. We-Care.com is incredibly grateful to be able to support suchear a great organization and contribute to this mission.
