Breast Friends Fund "Taste the Cure" Fundraiser
The Breast Friends Fund will be hosting its 3rd annual Taste the Cure Fundraiser on Friday, March 23rd at The Gallery in Glastonbury, CT. The night will consist of a wine tasting, apps, a pasta and carving station, a silent auction and so much more. Come support this wonderful family and others alike. Read a little of her story below.
Sandy Cassanelli first got breast cancer at age 37 in 2013. She underwent a bi-lateral mastectomy, 8 rounds of chemo, & 28 days of radiation. Unfortunately, in 2015 she was stricken with Metastatic Breast Cancer at 39 years old.
Breast Friends Fund was created by her family & dedicated to not only finding a cure but to so many others living with this horrible disease.
Last year, the event was a great success, with over 280 people in attendance and raised over $50,000. The goal this year is to double last year’s proceeds which will honor commitment Breast Friends Fund has made of $100,000 to support Metastatic Breast Cancer Research at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
