NEW: Bay State Saving Banks Promoting Breast Cancer Awareness
Thursday, October 04, 2012
On October 2nd, Bay State Savings Bank was the presenting sponsor of “Looks for Hope,” a fashion show benefitting Hope Lodge in Worcester, which is a patient service program of the American Cancer Society. The Lodge offers free lodging and support for cancer patients traveling to Massachusetts for ongoing treatment.
Bay State Savings Bank is also donating $1.00 to local breast cancer research, awareness, prevention and cure (at UMASS) for every new “Like” the Bank receives on its Facebook page during the month of October. In addition, anyone who makes a donation of any size to local Breast Cancer Research at one of the Bank’s branches will receive a PINK token of appreciation. The Bank has branches in Auburn, Holden, and Worcester, in addition to its main office in Worcester.
“Bay State Savings Bank is committed to supporting efforts to prevent and cure this devastating disease,” said Diane Giampa, SVP/Human Resources & Marketing for Bay State Savings Bank. “Please join us in the fight!”
According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 226,870 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women this year, and approximately 39,510 women will die from it in 2012. Today, there are nearly 3 million Breast Cancer survivors living in the United States, in large part through the generosity of people who have given time and money for research and treatment.
