Approximately 13 years ago, my beautiful sister, Karen; a wife and mother of 2- was diagnosed
with breast cancer. At the time, this diagnosis devastated our whole family. My sister is such a sweet,
kind and non-confrontational woman. The thought of her fighting such an evil enemy was terrifying!
The battle began and we all started to see a strength we did not know existed in her. She faced the
horrible radiation and chemo treatments, and the physical illness that these cause- including the loss of her beautiful hair. But still she inspired everyone around her. On Facebook, we started a prayer page
that just exploded! Before we knew it, there were hundreds of people from all over the world praying
and sending thoughts and gifts. It was so uplifting! A few long and difficult months later, she had won her battle! No cancer was found in her body! This very season of Karen's life is what inspired this event.
The 9th Annual Lick Breast Cancer Music Fest and Ice Cream Social, "The 9th Round", will be
held Saturday, September 10th, 2022, at The Pines Pavilion located at 1660 Union Center Maine
Highway Endicott, NY 13760. Last Call, a local act with an amazingly energetic show and rave
reviews, will be headlining. There will also be a bill of highly talented acts! Including: Electric Mayhem, Jimmi Jones & the Family Jewels, Beard of Bees, Wreckless Marci, DramaScream, Messy Truth, Two Dollar Pistol, The Gents, Tijuana Danger Dogs, and The Tim Ruffo Band. All brought to you live from the Sante Healthcare Summer Sound Stage. In addition to the live music, there will also be plenty of food. The Pines Pavilion outdoor kitchen will be open so bring your appetite. Save room for dessert, there will be Hershey's Ice Cream to enjoy! There will also be fun for the kids; activities including face painting, a bounce house and a dunk tank! A day filled with fun for the whole family.
Your support and commitment to this event promises to make it a huge success! We have
fundraised just over $55,000 for local breast cancer warriors and local breast cancer charities. We want to set our goal even higher this year for our warrior, Shelby Taylor! We would like to thank you
personally, in advance for your consideration to help us "lick" breast cancer. We do not want anyone to
feel obligated to donate to this event with anything more than your love and support for this cause.
Please show up with your friends and family and enjoy the day. If possible; find a level of donation that
you're comfortable with and be a part of defending our Warrior against this relentless disease!
