The Green Cocoon (TGC) owners Jim Materkowski and Candace Lord attended a breast cancer awareness event, “Evening by the Sea.” The event was held on August 11, 2019 at Wentworth by the Sea in Rye, NH. Moreover, it was a fundraiser put on by My Breast Cancer Support. The nonprofit organization provides financial and emotional support to breast cancer patients. These patients live not only in the Greater Seacoast area of New Hampshire but also in Southern Maine.
“The team at The Green Cocoon not only loves working in our community, but also working with our community,” said Lord, herself a breast cancer survivor. “Awareness is very important to me as I am currently undergoing chemotherapy with one treatment left. Furthermore, my prognosis is great and I want to do whatever I can to help other women going through the same thing. Equally important is early detection.”
At the fundraiser attendees enjoyed music, complimentary champagne, hearty appetizers, dessert tastings, and gourmet coffees. Not to mention they were able to bid on silent auction items as well as win raffle gifts.
