Young mothers with breast cancer will benefit from the Breast Cancer Assistance Group’s 15th Annual Bowl-A-Thon Saturday, March 18, from 1:00 to 4: 00 PM at Monterey Lanes, 2162 N. Fremont Avenue, Monterey. The event, co-sponsored by Pacific Grove High School, honors the memory of Isabelle McKay Giacolone, a PGHS graduate who had two young children when she died of breast cancer.
Teams are lined up and a wonderful array of silent auction items are ready for you to see and bid on. The auction and raffle will include “retired” bowling pins artistically painted by students from local high schools. Come, watch, and cheer them on.
Financial grants from BCAG help Monterey County women and their families meet basic living expenses while they are undergoing diagnosis, treatment or recovery from breast cancer. During its history, BCAG has assisted nearly 1,000 local women who do not qualify for other assistance programs and who have exhausted their family funds.
