Sponsorship Opportunities Available for 10th Annual Bras Across the Bridge

PENSACOLA, Fla. (July 23, 2019) – Sponsorship opportunities are available for the 10th Annual Bras Across the Bridge, presented by Baptist Health Care Foundation and Pensacola Honda along with partners The Grand Marlin Restaurant & Oyster Bar, Soft Rock 94.1, Magic 106.1, Nash 102.7, WCOA 1370, Jet 100.7, WEAR ABC3 - WFGX 35 and Pensacola News Journal.

Breast cancer survivors, their loved ones and the community are invited to join together as a show of awareness and support in the fight against breast cancer. One hundred percent of funds raised will benefit the Baptist Health Care Foundation’s Mammogram Fund, which provides mammograms to women who are not financially able to afford one on their own. The fund also helps raise awareness and support for early detection.

The event is scheduled for 8 a.m. Sat., Oct. 5 at the foot of the Bob Sikes Bridge in The Grand Marlin Pensacola Beach parking lot. The after-party will continue at The Grand Marlin from 9:30 a.m. to noon. The celebration will include a silent auction, live music, activities and drink specials.

The 2018 event raised more than $35,000. Free screenings have been provided to 2,021 women. As a result of these screenings, 411 women required additional testing, 47 required biopsies and 18 were diagnosed with breast cancer. The bras will be donated to local organizations that help women and girls in need.

Event registration will open soon. More information and sponsorship opportunities are available at  BaptistHealthCareFoundation.org or by contacting foundation@bhcpns.org or 850.469.7906.
