Amy’s Hallmark to host fundraiser for breast cancer support group

Time to get an early start on your holiday card and gift shopping while supporting a great local organization. Amy’s Hallmark, located at 14765 S. Dixie Hwy. in Palmetto Bay, will be hosting its second annual fundraiser on Wednesday, Sept. 12, 6-9 p.m., to support South Miami Hospital’s “Your Bosom Buddies” breast cancer support group.

Proceeds from raffle drawings and a percentage of all sales made that day will go to the breast cancer support group. Refreshments will be served.

“Some of our customers approached us and asked how we could help out this worthwhile organization and we didn’t hesitate to do our part,” said Bill Hochstetter, owner of Amy’s Hallmark. “When a woman is diagnosed with and being treated for breast cancer they are so overwhelmed with the medical treatments and focus to just get better.

“A support group like Your Bosom Buddies allows them to find other people to share their fears, struggles and hopes with and it’s a group we are honored to be a part of and support in any way we can,” he added.

Your Bosom Buddies Breast Cancer Support Group, located in South Miami Hospital at the Victor E. Clarke Education Center, is a sharing, caring and educational breast cancer support group, which also offers the very valuable “Buddie for You” buddy program for newly diagnosed women.

The support group meets once a month.

Established in 1980, Amy’s Hallmark in Palmetto Bay is a locally owned and operated card and gift shop, offering a wide array of unique and specialty gifts from top names such as Vera Bradley and Romero Britto. Amy’s Hallmark also carries one of the largest selections of Gold Crown Exclusive ornaments, gourmet candies and chocolates, jewelry and the largest selection of collegiate gifts in South Florida.
