Breast Cancer Fundraiser in Richland

Posted: Updated:
RICHLAND, Wa.,--Raising awareness for Breast Cancer was on the hearts and minds of everyone at Richland Alliance Church today.

Ballons adorned with pink ribbons lined the Sanford street sidewalk. Inside, a raffle, bake sale, and silent auction were just some of the attractions that greeted guests.

Event organizer Michelle Harrington said her job doesn't stop here.

"There's just so much more that we need to do and hopefully maybe 20 years from now, we won't have this problem because they'll have a cure by then," said Harrington.

100 percent of donations at the door along with a portion of all sales will go directly to the Susan G. Komen foundation.

20 vendors from as far as Idaho came to show their support. Harrington also said that early detection is crucial, yet it is still an area that needs more funding for research.
