Galway Organisations Keep the Spirit of Giving Alive and Well for Breast Cancer Research!

BCR13
Breast Cancer Research (formerly NBCRI) is a national charity that funds a comprehensive research programme at the National University of Ireland, Galway. Breast cancer research has been proven to improve the diagnosis, treatment options, and outcomes for those who develop the disease which makes it a very worthy cause when it comes to efforts to support Breast Cancer Research through donations and fundraising opportunities. These local organisations are flying the flag this month for Breast Cancer Research

‘100 MEN WHO GIVE A DAMN’

SUPPORTING BREAST CANCER RESEARCH

‘100 Men Who Give A Damn’, is a bit like Dragon’s Den for charities except someone always goes home with the money. Once a quarter, 100 men get together three pre-selected local charities deliver 5-minute pitches detailing why their organisations need funds for specific projects. Members then cast a secret ballot to decide the winning pitch. The winning charity receives a cheque for €100 from every person in the audience. To date the group has raised over €45,000 for local Galway charities.
