The Manhasset Women's Coalition Against Breast Cancer (MWCABC) is an all-volunteer, charitable organization founded to unite the women of Manhasset, Long Island in the fight against breast cancer. MWCABC has evolved through the years, expanding in size and scope, but has maintained an unwavering focus and commitment to finding a cure for this disease.
Dear friends, neighbors & supporters,
We hope you are staying healthy and safe during this pandemic. This year has been unprecedented to say the least and, unfortunately, our largest annual fundraiser, Ladies’ Night Out (LNO), scheduled for October 21, 2020 has been cancelled.
Over the years, LNO has raised funds that have contributed to our research grants and much needed funding for our Outreach Program. Outreach focuses on helping residents of Manhasset and nearby communities who have been diagnosed with and are fighting breast cancer.
We understand these are challenging times for many people but these women battling breast and other women’s cancers need us more than ever!
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, we will run throughout October our “Manhasset Pink Strong” campaign to raise the funds necessary for the Coalition to continue its work and support the women who need our help. Please consider one or several of the following opportunities to participate in our fundraising efforts and help us raise money to fight breast cancer. Any donation is greatly appreciated.
Our “Manhasset Pink Strong” social media campaign consists of short videos that will be released daily on Facebook and Instagram to highlight one of our warriors, a researcher, a doctor, a service provider or a volunteer who will share the connection they each have to the Coalition, what it means to them, and/or how it has made a difference in their life. Please consider donating in honor of one or several of our daily special guests.
To support local businesses and to have them join us in the fight against breast cancer, we have invited all stores in Manhasset to “Wrap Manhasset in Pink” throughout the month of October to bring attention to our cause and help us fundraise. We look forward to seeing the storefronts outfitted in pink with our posters proudly displayed. Participating businesses will be highlighted on social media, so please visit these establishments and support them so they can support us.
Our 22nd Annual MWCABC 5K Run/Walk has gone virtual this year. It means that it is still happening but on your own terms: you pick the place and the date to run or walk your 3.1 miles. Runners can post their results beginning Sunday, October 4 through October 11, 2020. Register ASAP as the first 500 who sign up will receive a Manhasset Pink Strong tee-shirt. Please, join the race and support our fight against breast cancer while exercising anytime, anywhere.
The Cash for the Cure raffle tickets are available. One lucky winner will walk away with the grand prize of $10,000! Additional prizes of $2,000 and $1,000 will also be awarded. Only 500 tickets will be sold. To purchase a ticket, contact Patrice Burke at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hurry, they are going fast!
Again, we thank you for all your support and sincerely appreciate any contribution you can make.
