Millions of women are living with breast cancer, and the disease continues to affect more women each year. To help bring attention to the problem, the Breast Cancer Awareness Coalition continues to hold public events, similar to Friday nights Lets Bag Breast Cancer Bingo.
Holding their first fundraiser, the event sold out of tickets in just three weeks, with 400 women attending. Purchasing Bingo cards, those lucky women who had the opportunity to yell out BINGO, took home designer purses made by Gucci, Coach and Michael Kohrs.
While women enjoyed the exciting atmosphere, friendly conversation and the possibility of taking home a designer purse, the night's real focus was bringing awareness to breast cancer in a fun way.
Money raised from Friday nights festivities will go to funding future breast cancer awareness events put on by the coalition.
