It is already October and that means a month-long of Halloween music, themed parties, cool crisp air and pumpkin spice lattes (the latter for those that happen to be stateside, at least). October also means breast cancer awareness month! Because we cover local businesses and of course support this cause (we are women-owned by the way), we thought it would be nice to shout out the amazing local businesses that are spending their time, efforts and money on raising awareness so that you can go support them and know you are also contributing to the cause.
Cancer Support VI is behind many of these events and specials so before moving on we wanted to be sure to mention their name. If you would like to contribute directly to them, you can find their website with information on how to help here: https://www.cancersupportvi.com/support-us

If you have or know of a business that is doing something for breast cancer awareness month, let us know in the comments section, and we will add them to our list. Or, maybe if you have a business you will decide to participate (employees, don’t be scared to make the suggestion to your boss either!) : )
