October 24, 2018
By ED FRANKS ( , Pine Island Eagle

For more than a dozen years, From Our Hearts Inc. has been raising funds to provide screening and treatment for the debilitating disease of breast cancer for eligible people in the Greater Pine Island area.

OctoberBreast is one of the non-profit events that makes it possible for that mission to be carried out. This year's OctoberBreast offers a fun and entertaining way for Pine Island to gather in support of islanders needing screening and those struggling with breast cancer while at the same time celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

OctoberBreast 2018 will be held this Sunday, Oct., 28, from noon to 4 p.m., at Miceli's Restaurant. Everyone is invited to come out and enjoy music by Strange Arrangement, Mel Meo as Dottie (our hilarious local islander who tells it like it is), a blind auction for Pine Island Reeboks decorated by local artists, the Pink Heals fire truck and volunteers, 50/50s, merchandise and the Pink Drink Special.

"We invite everyone to join us for an afternoon of local humor and laughter, musical entertainment and great food while supporting those on the island who need financial support for breast cancer prevention and treatment," said From Our Hearts President Barb Riordan. "Come visit us at this unique event you can feel good about. You might even walk away with your own custom painted pair of Pine Island Reeboks!"
