MADEIRA, Ohio - Merchants of Madeira are collecting donations in their local business establishments for breast cancer research throughout the month of October. Liz Hilberg of Monkee's of Madeira is behind the idea for this fundraising effort.
For each donation they are hanging pink ribbons on the branches of Madeira trees. Although autumn is upon us, many of the trees are in full bloom with pink accents.
In addition to the pink ribbon campaign, there is a special painting session at "Cheers To Art" on Tuesday, October 25 at 7 pm. Jill and Michael Carroll host the party. No experience is necessary only a willing spirit. Participants will take home a "Hope Vase" painting, which they will create themselves.
A portion of the proceeds goes to the American Cancer Society.
