Breast Fest Comes To Ladd

Posted by wlpo on August 6, 2010

Wanting to come up with an attention grabbing title for her American Cancer Society Fundraiser, Geri Miller of Ladd picked “Breast Fest”.

Miller’s event runs tomorrow noon until midnight at Dick’s in Ladd.  There are four bands, food, and auctions for 15 dollars a person.  Proceeds go to the fight breast cancer.

Miller was diagnosed with breast cancer when she turned 35.  Less than a week away from turning 50, Miller is nearly halfway to raising 50 thousand dollars this year for the American Cancer Society.

While it’s meant to be a festive event, Miller says she feels blessed to be a cancer survivor and wants to remember those who lost their battle to cancer. Advance tickets to Breast Fest are available at State Bank of Cherry, North Central Bank of Ladd, and Spring Valley City Bank.  They’ll also be available at the gate tomorrow.
