Yakima Dispatchers & Calltakers Raise Money for Breast Cancer

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, WA.--Yakima Police, firefighters and search and rescue teams all spent part of their day supporting SunComm.

The 9-1-1 emergency dispatch center held their 6th Annual Breast Cancer Fundraiser Thursday.

Organizers said all proceeds stay local and benefit Memorial Hospital's "Ohana Mammography Center." The money will help women who can't afford Mammograms.

"Just about everybody in that centers been touched in someway either by losing someone or knowing someone with breast cancer," said Katy Ybarro. "So it's become a very important fundraiser for us."

Organizers said each year the event brings in more money. Last year, they collected more than $4,500. SunComm employees said they hope to keep the momentum going and raise even more this year.
