BENEFITING: VIRGINIA ANN SCHEUNEMANN MEMORIAL FUND
Ann was a Brighter Side customer.
Ann passed away from Breast Cancer on Friday, October 3, 2003 at the age of 68. Her husband John graciously allowed us to name our charity in her memory.
The Virginia Ann Scheunemann Memorial Fund fund provides various mastectomy products, wigs and head coverings to uninsured and low-income women.
The fund is kept alive through generous donations, and by fund raisers, such as the annual Turkey Trot in Oceanside every Thanksgiving morning.
In 2006, the Susan G Koman foundation granted the VAS Memorial Fund $10,000 to be used for underserved women in San Diego County. In 2007, the amount given was $15,000.
With the help of these two funds, we at The Brighter Side have been able to serve several hundred women in need.
Contact us if you wish to make a donation to the Virginia Ann Scheunemann Memorial Fund, a U.S. registered 501(c)(3) tax-deductible nonprofit charity.
