Waterfall Group, the leader in all-inclusive sport fishing resort management, today announced that Waterfall Resort was selected once again by the Waterfall Foundation to host the 21st annual Breast Cancer Fundraiser, a benefit for the Breast Cancer Detection Center of Alaska.
“For 21 years we’ve hosted 80-90 bighearted individuals at the public event,” said Steve Cockrell, General Manger, Waterfall Resort. “From every level of the organization we stand behind the Foundation and are proud of our partnership with them.”
Since the launch in 1993, the event has raised more than $5 million giving thousands of rural Alaskans access to mobile mammogram and digital ultrasound screenings, regardless of their ability to pay.
“Because of generous attendees as well as Waterfall Resort Alaska, the Center has been able to purchase, maintain and transport mobile mammography units all over the state, even into areas unreachable by car,” said Eileen Van Wyhe, Executive Director of The Waterfall Foundation. “Attendees at the 2013 event helped us raise $200,000 for the Cancer Center. We are looking forward that same level of success at the August 2014 event.”
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a nation-wide campaign that promotes prevention, detection and screening.
