After some very difficult conversations earlier this year, BCFA’s Board of Directors has decided that we will not host our luncheon this year. We appreciate that so many of you look forward to this event each year, as do we. However, we felt the decision to not host a luncheon in 2017 was a responsible one during these tough economic times. We do recognize, however, that people still need the assistance we provide and so our objectives have not changed. We will continue to do our good work in the communities we serve by moving ahead with raising funds as we look at different ways to inspire and support. By foregoing the luncheon, we will be able to put every dollar raised into the hands of select non-profits whose values are aligned with ours and whose work serves our communities.
The mission of Breast Cancer Focus, Alaska has not changed. We continue to run as an all-volunteer board whose mission is to forge a cohesive team as a catalyst for obtaining funds to support advocacy, education, research and compassionate giving in Alaska and to help eradicate breast cancer.
