Breast cancer benefit in Lynchburg

Local News

One local restaurant is teaming up with breast cancer survivors to raise money for the cause.

At The Stoney Badger Tavern in Lynchburg, there was live music, a live auction, and plenty of pink as part of the “Breast Cancer won’t win, We got this” event.

This is the fourth year for the event which raises money for women in the Lynchburg area fighting a battle with breast cancer.

“Just wanting to help the local women and since I myself have been through it, I wanted to do this and all of my girls that have been stuck here with me , through all of this, I wanted them to be here too,” said Sherry Pearce, breast cancer survivor.

The women hope to raise about 5 to 6 thousand dollars this year.
