Little Black Dress Event supports cancer programs at McLaren Port Huron

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

PORT HURON, MI –The auxiliaries of McLaren Port Huron and St. Joseph Mercy
Port Huron, along with the Kearns family, presented the 2013 Betty Kearns Little Black Dress fundraiser Friday, April 19 at Alexander’s Banquet Center in Marysville.


Following the death of their mom, Betty Kearns, from breast cancer, her family wanted to do something in her memory that would help others with breast cancer. The result was the Little Black Dress event, a fundraiser first held in 2007 to benefit local cancer services. It has been held annually since. The auxiliaries of both McLaren Port Huron and St. Joseph Mercy Port Huron joined the Kearns family in 2012 to coordinate the event.


Following the fundraiser, the Kearns family presented Port Huron Hospital with
a check for $12,500 to help support breast cancer programs in Women’s Wellness Place and specifically to help fund the hospital’s American Cancer Society Look Good, Feel Better program.
