Benefit for Breast Cancer Survivors
Nonprofit Blossoming Butterfly will hold a fundraising Breast Cancer Awareness Party for survivors, patients, their family and friends from 7 to 10 p.m., October 12, catered by Jolie Events. There will be live entertainment, desserts and a raffle for great prizes.
Founded by breast cancer survivor Nicole Johnson in October 2017, she says, “Our mission is to provide spiritual, mental, physical, educational and financial help to breast cancer patients through yoga, meditation, nutrition, self-care, and monetary assistance. Our vision is to be the hub of uplifting and offering support to breast cancer patients through affirming beauty, vibrancy, encouragement, education, preparation for the battle ahead, healthy living and financial resources.”
Fighting breast cancer is tough enough, Blossoming Butterfly aims to reduce the added stress that finances can bring, allowing our Gainesville breast cancer fighters to focus on their recovery. They provide rent or mortgage assistance; utility bill assistance; makeovers’ and meditation/yoga sessions.
Tickets are $25; $15 for survivors; and free for current breast cancer patients. Location: 6 W. University Ave. Gainesville. For more information, visit BlossomingButterfly.org.
