Let’s hear it for the ladies of the Barge Canal Optimist Club for adding about 100 feet to the Mammary Mile! At their recent Beverages and Bras event, they raised $350 and got 50 bras for the cause! Laurie and Peggy have also joined the Relay For Life committee this year and their talents and ideas are truly appreciated. Thanks to the folks at Josie’s Place on West Ave. in Lockport for welcoming the gals and their glue-guns. Barker Soda Jerk Lori Jenks and ACS staff partner Jane Dent partied with the Pink Ladies for our cause! Thanks, everyone!

Bras keep making their way to Thee Barker Store from friends far and wide!
Roxanne Schrader sent a care package of 20 bras and $100 from the “Tri-County Babes” Red Hat group!! Thank you ladies!!!!!
A package also came from Holmes of the “Scarlett O’Hats.” If decorated tags are used instead of the bra itself, the bras can be donated after the Mammary Mile is over, to charities that deal with disaster relief or women-to-work programs for abusive women, etc. It’s like a double donation and we’re all trying to recycle and be kinder to our earth!!
A lady in Hamburg sent some amazing creations that are hanging above the soda fountain at the Barker Store!
Breakfats and Bras at PWT Restaurant was fun and fruitful! We have 35 more bras for the Mammary Mile and had some great breakfast pizza and fried dough courtesy of Judy Remington. Thanks to everyone who came out to help!
We are less than one month away from our first giant “airing” of the clothesline of bras on the Mammary Mile!! It is impossible to build a mile of giant clothespoles, so we are stringing the bras in 50 foot sections that will be held by LIVE volunteers at the Breast Cancer Canal Walk on Mother’s Day!! That means we will need over 100 volunteers to make history with us!!
The Breast Cancer Walk starts at 1 and is over after they cover the 2.5 mile walk. Then we will stretch out our line across the canal bank. If you or your group would like to be a part fo this giant project, call carol Ander at 560-2081 or email Julie at email@example.com today!
Also following the walk is a huge Chinese auction, 50/50, side raffle etc.

God Bless You for all you do to fight cancer and support survivors!
The great gals at North Tonawanda Catholic School had a great morning and so did the Mammary Mile!!! They gathered 42 bras, over $350 and more on the way!! Jean and her sister started this to honor a friend going through cancer. Aren’t we blessed in this world to have so many angels in the guise of friends to join us on life’s path!
Not only did they have a party to decorate bras and get the $5 donations, the Moose Club made a generous cash donation to support many more bras, with more coming!! Don’t the fellas look great? Thank you for “manning up” to help us reach our goal!
