This money was raised at the community level during the libraries’ activities in observance of Breast Cancer Awareness Month during the latter part of 2015.
Micoud Library head Adria George handed over the funds to St. Lucia Cancer Society’s represented by Lista Louis and Dr. David Bristol.
These activities for Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October 2015 included:
- A community Health Fair held in Choiseul Village on October 2, 1015 in partnership with St. Jude’s Hospital, with presentations and free examinations to serve the residents.
- “Wear It Pink” campaign with schools in Micoud and Choiseul communities.
- A cocktail soiree called “Drink It Pink” with Silent Auction, which proved to be a fun and fruitful source of donations on behalf of the Cancer Society. Over $2,000 was raised in the Silent Auction, and $2,000 in ticket sales.
