With a live auction, raffle, door prizes, heads and tails contest, silent auction there were many ways to support the Breast Cancer Supportive Care Foundation at the 2011 Fashion with Compassion Benefit. As models (who had benefited from the BCSCF) posed in Fall fashions from Ducks and Ed Williams Mens Wear the crowd applauded and cheered. Mothers and daughters, friends, and co-workers came together to raise funds for the all important cause. It was an afternoon filled with much laughter.

The goal and purpose of the foundation was perhaps best summed up by the psychologist who works at the foundation and who sat at City Style and Living magazine's table. "I've worked with the BCSCF for several years and what you learn is that even at the bleakest moments when it is very sad, there is always HOPE."
