We had fun with it and were happy to raise money for a worthy cause. Breast cancer has touched the lives of our lodge members.” Members also sold breast cancer awareness bracelets and ribbons and put together a gift basket, which will be used at a future fundraiser to support the Bonnie’s Bus Program.
