WQMX Bosom Buddies’ Sweet 16

 

Since 1992, Muffins for Mammograms has been distributing breast health information along with muffins. The proceeds provide screening mammograms at no cost to men and women who are uninsured.  Last night marked the 16th annual WQMX Bosom Buddies event at The Tangier in Akron; and what a “Sweet 16” it was.  With an evening that highlighted raffles, live/silent auctions, and a performance by Big & Rich; everyone was full of energy and generosity to raise as much money as possible for the Muffins for Mammograms program.


Prior to last evening, Muffins for Mammograms had raised $900,000. Last night, the Bosom Buddies event raised $64,515 putting the total amount raised over $960,000 for Muffins for Mammograms. The big auction items featured a trip to the 2015 CMA Awards which included airfare and hotel accommodations that went for $5,000. The other featured auction item was an impromptu assortment that Big & Rich put together on stage.  The package that Big & Rich started with just a special video birthday message from Big & Rich; it then grew to a VIP onstage/backstage access passes for the winner and 5 of their friends to a Big & Rich concert in 2016. With two bidders bidding their way up to $4,500 the band decided to give both bidders the package at a winning bid of $4,500 each. Totaling $9,000 donated to Muffins for Mammograms.

Of the amount raised last night, $16,000 of it was contributed by the Akron Racers Charities. Through our Pink Bucket Brigade and Pink Auction the Akron Racers community has helped make Muffins for Mammograms possible.  For this, The Akron Racers say thank you. Every game when you see the Akron Racers interns led by Joey Arietta at the bottom of the 4th inning running around with pink buckets, know that you are contributing to something special.  Each contribution is greatly appreciated by the Akron Racers and Muffins for Mammograms initiative. Without you, the fans, none of this would have been possible, thank you.
