Doing Good – Fit to Provide Hope

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Dillard’s Market Street At Heath Brook is offering the ladies of our community a fun and easy way to make an impact.

It’s time to find your “perfect fit” and support the fight against breast cancer.

Dillard’s is hosting its biannual Wacoal’s Fit for the Cure event on October 7th.

For each woman who stops by to get a complimentary bra fitting, Dillard’s will donate $2 to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, which focuses on patient navigation and advocacy, providing resources for breast cancer patients and funding research into the causes and treatment of breast cancer.

An additional $2 will be donated for each purchase of a Wacoal or b.tempt’d bra purchased in store that day.

Since 1999, through Fit for the Cure and other initiatives, Wacoal has donated more than $5.8 million to the Komen foundation in support of its mission to help end breast cancer and properly fit more than 965,000 women.

The foundation’s “Bold Goal” mission is to reduce breast cancer mortality by 50 percent in the United States by 2026 through various initiatives.

Dillard’s will also donate locally to Project Hope of Marion County, a nonprofit organization benefiting homeless women and children, through point of sale transactions by associates throughout the store. When you make any purchase leading up to October 7th, you will be asked if you wish to make a donation of $5 or more and can submit your name for a giveaway open to all who donate.

“Each store also partners with a local organization. We raise money in the store from employees and customers through different fundraising opportunities and then, on the day of the event, we purchase bras and panties which we donate to that local organization,” explains Store Manager Timothy Gammack-Clark. “This year we have chosen Project Hope, which is a shelter for women and children here in Ocala.”

If you can’t make it on that day, you can schedule a special fitting prior to the sale and take advantage of the presale. You can even gather a group of friends and make it a party to support this great cause.

For more information, call (352) 629-9266.
