Granzella’s Hosts Successful Breast Cancer Fundraiser

[slideshow_deploy id=’73478′]

On Saturday, October 17, 2015, Granzella’s hosted its 9th Annual Breast Cancer Fundraiser with the proceeds benefiting Casting for Recovery, a national non-profit organization that supports and educates women who are battling or recovering from Breast Cancer. Often taking women on fishing retreats where they can focus on being themselves and relieve the worries of cancer, treatments, and family life.

Additionally, proceeds will benefit the Colusa County Brest Cancer Fund a fund managed by the Community Foundation of Colusa County with the mission to assist those battling breast cancer in Colusa County. The Colusa County Breast Cancer Fund provides services to Colusa County Breast Cancer Patients on an as needed basis.

“We have about 280 attendees this year,” said event organizer, Tootie Hackett, “a lot of the tickets were last minute – it’s amazing hour our community pulls together for benefits like this.”

The annual fundraiser serves Bagna Càuda, a warm dip of anchovies, garlic, and olive oil served with fresh vegetables as an appetizer in which participants cooked raw shrimp, chicken and beef at the table.

“This is a fantastic event,” said Michelle Rippe, a first-time attendee, and breast cancer survivor, “the food was delicious and was a lot of fun.”

Rippe was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2013.

“Not only was the battle difficult but all of the little things a person has to worry about,” said Rippe, “It’s wonderful to know that there are programs out there like the Colusa County Breast Cancer Fund and the American Cancer Society that can help with various costs of treatments.”

Dozens of items were raffled to lucky ticket holders while others cast their bid during the live and silent auction.

Doug Turner served as the master of ceremonies.

“We are not going to stop hosting this benefit until we beat cancer,” said Turner.

Turner also commented that he serves as the master of ceremonies during the Granzella’s Bagna Càulda event that Benefits the California Highway Patrol 11-99 fund, which traditionally was hosted as a men’s only event.

“Tootie and Stacie came up with the idea for a breast cancer event after deciding that the men can’t have all the fun,” said Turner, “it was also started because Jim Granzella was a male breast cancer survivor himself – and not many knew that.”

Additionally, Suzanne Gulick the Casting for Recovery Program coordinator for Northern California spoke about the organization and read a letter from a retreat attendee named Sheila. Patti Turner from the local breast cancer marathon group, “Walk’n 4 Udders” spoke about her group’s activities.
