Real support for those TaTa’s!

Last Thursday night at Sportsman’s Warehouse, the Breast Cancer Detection Center held a ladies night to benefit their cause!
This event included games, refreshments, seminars, and the first 100 ladies got free gift bags!  Later that evening they held a silent auction that helped the BCDC continue to deliver their breast cancer screening services to Alaskans.

Pipeline era ¬†gaps in health services for local women demonstrated needs the center was formed to fulfill, according to the non-profit’s mission history.

“During the height of the oil pipeline construction, mammograms were very difficult for women to obtain. A small group of area women organized to solve the problem. Through their efforts, the Breast Cancer Detection Center opened in 1976 to provide mammograms to Interior Alaskan women.”
No news yet on how much money had been raised but by the look of the turnout it seemed like they weren’t going to have to worry about raising support and spreading awareness of the center’s work.
