Recently, members of Prescott Frontier Days, Inc., the Prescott Frontier Days Foundation, and Yavapai Regional Medical Center (YRMC) met to celebrate 23 years of collaboration and community service. The gathering culminated in the presentation of a check in the amount of $4,000 to benefit the BreastCare Center at YRMC.
In just the past four years, the Prescott Frontier Days organizations have donated more than $14,000 to the Center.
“We could not do this without the generous support of our community,” said Chris Graff, President of Prescott Frontier Days, Inc. “We kick off our BreastCare Center fundraising program with our annual, sold-out ‘Tough Enough to Wear Pink’ banquet. We then team up with Wrangler® during our World’s Oldest Rodeo event to outfit everyone, our competitors and rodeo fans alike, in pink. It makes for a colorful evening.”
In accepting this year’s donation, YRMC Foundation Executive Director Robbie Nicol stated, “We are honored that when the Prescott Frontier Days organizations consider what is important and how they can use their resources to make our community stronger and healthier, they choose to support our mission and work. All funds donated to our BreastCare Center stay here in our community and are used to promote breast cancer awareness, provide needed services, and ensure we have the latest technology to serve our patients.”
