Restaurant Raises Funds for YRMC Community BreastCare Fund
Breast cancer prevention in the Quad Cities got a boost in October, thanks to a campaign sponsored by the Gurley Street Grill, 230 W. Gurley St., Prescott. The campaign – Boot Out Cancer – raised $12,568 for the YRMC Community BreastCare Fund.
Krystal Burge and Mark Peterson, founders of Fork in the Road Restaurants, which owns Gurley Street Grill, recently presented the check to John Amos, President and CEO, Yavapai Regional Medical Center (YRMC).
“Women from our communities who cannot afford screening, diagnostics or treatment turn to the YRMC Community BreastCare Fund for help,” said Amos. “With the excellent support of the Gurley Street Grill team and its patrons, we’ll reach even more women in our community who need breast care.”
During Boot Out Cancer, Gurley Street Grill sold koozies in the shape of cowboy (or girl) boots. The restaurant also displayed a large pink cowboy boot for people who wanted to drop in a few dollars to support the cause.
“I think everybody knows someone who has had breast cancer or has been touched by it in some way,” said Chris Brady, Director of Marketing, Fork in the Road Restaurants. “The timing was perfect and the campaign was a great fit.”
