Billy ManzoAny Amount
Master Pizzaiolo Chef, Billy Manzo is over the moon to be a part of Bras For A Cause 2019. He's hoping to raise enough money for the Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Foundation so they will be rolling in the dough. Breast cancer hits close to (phone) home for Chef Billy. This year, his participation is in honor of his wife, Christine (survivor); his sister-in-law, Nicole Apelain (survivor); his father-in-law, Gary Arvanigian (survivor); his brother's mother-in-law, Diana Shoushanian; and in memory of Christine's dear aunt, Jill Digiovanni and Christine's grandmother, Elsie Arvanigian. This event is going to be out of this world! Can you guess Chef Billy's bra theme?
Whether you've figured out the theme or not, we need your help to make this event a huge success. First, we need you to buy tickets to this show. Billy will be wearing a bra, and that's worth paying money to see. Second, if you really can't make it to the show, we still need you to donate. Finally, we need you to Share this with all your friends and family and ask them to donate.
88-cents of every dollar raised by the Foundation goes directly to the free programs and support services they provide to people affected by cancer. In 2018, they delivered 4,200 nutritious meals to people in active cancer treatments and their families, provided over 500 Comfort Care Bags to newly diagnosed breast cancer patients, and their Hope Bus-a 38-foot pink RV that provides education and comfort to people who can't come to the Foundation had 175 site visits and almost 6,000 visitors.
Thanks for your support, and I hope to see you on November 21st at Bras for a Cause!

Rich Piltch & Stan PiltchAny Amount
The Piltch and Gemma Families have been bonded for over 15 years by their large nuclear families and a passion to address the impact of breast cancer through The Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Foundation (GGBCF), a nonprofit organization serving RI, Southeastern MA, and Eastern CT. GGBCF is dedicated to providing free support, education and wellness
services to individuals and families touched by breast cancer.
Two of the 3 sisters and a sister-in-law in our family have defeated breast cancer. They had the good fortune to have the resources to be diagnosed in time, excellent Drs., and a network of people to help meet their varied needs throughout the difficult process. We know that a large number of people are not as blessed as our sisters, and one of the many things we love about GGBCF is that the organization serves a diverse group of people, many of whom would otherwise have no access to support or services. The importance of this can't be overstated. When our sisters were diagnosed, we were struck by the emotions and confusion that occur when you or a loved one is diagnosed with cancer. We applaud the GGBCF for providing the support and resources people need whether newly diagnosed, a survivor or someone has lost a loved one to cancer.
On Nov. 21 members of our family will be performing at "BRAS for a CAUSE" at Twin Rivers Casino. We will be doing a skit from the movie "9 to 5" and Dolly Parton will be making a guest appearance. We hope that you will join us for a GREAT time and if you can't attend, we ask that you make a donation through this website. Every dollar makes a difference!
