Nemacolin Woodlands Resort To Host Breast Cancer Fundraiser

Farmington, PA—Nemacolin Woodlands Resort will welcome Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer Ambassador, Heidi Floyd on December 3, 2011 at a “Hope for the Holidays” event to raise funds for breast cancer research. Heidi’s unique and inspiring story of battling breast cancer while pregnant has captivated audiences nationwide. For a $35 ticket, guests will enjoy lunch, give-aways, and a memorable presentation while shopping for the newest Vera Bradley colors and styles in Nemacolin’s friendly and unique gift shop. The day also includes a holiday wine tasting and showcase by Christian W. Klay Winery, a trunk show presented by Marian’s Jewel Box and the opportunity to meet celebrated artist, Marcus Glenn.  “We’re delighted to partner with Nemacolin Woodlands Resort to raise funds for breast cancer research,” says Catherine Hill, executive director of the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer. “Our Vera Bradley retailers are the perfect partners to help us spread the word about the important work of the Vera Bradley Foundation.”

The Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer was founded by Vera Bradley owners Barbara Baekgaard and Patricia Miller in 1998. To date, it has contributed $12.25 million to the world renowned research team in the Indiana University Simon Cancer Center in Indianapolis. The team of researchers at the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer Research Laboratories is making significant progress and gaining national recognition for their work in the following areas:

  • Detection of cancer long before tumors form.
  • Identification of women at high risk for developing breast cancer.
  • Breast cancer prevention discoveries.
  • Safer and more effective therapies through individualized therapy based on genetics.
  • Better treatment of recurrences of breast cancer and prevention of metastasis.
  • Enhancing lives of survivors through approaches that improve both length and quality of life.

Impressive sales of the Vera Bradley breast cancer awareness colors generate part of this revenue, but another significant portion is contributed by donors such as Nemacolin Woodlands Resort and those who support their events. A portion of all wine and retail sales will also be donated to The Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer.
