Our Fight Against Breast Cancer

Since 2006, we have raised over $136,000 to support local breast cancer initiatives.  The funds raised stay in the local Alexandria, Virginia community:  Beneficiaries include The Breast Care Institute at Inova Mount Vernon Hospital and Joseph Viar & Bonnie Christ Cancer Center at  Inova Alexandria Hospital.  Past events have been wonderful community gatherings.
