On Oct. 17, the campaign presented a check for $6,000 to the St. Joseph’s Mercy Foundation, an organization that provides assistance to breast cancer patients in the Atlanta area.

Money was raised through donation boxes on the expo show floor, from a donation on behalf of the Women’s Fresh Perspectives attendees on behalf of Gill’s Onions and from the proceeds from a drawing featuring a prize guitar signed by Billy Dean and Martina McBride and donated by Naturipe Farms.

“We’re very pleased with the results of this inaugural promotion and look forward to growing the campaign and support for the cause in coming years,” said Brock Nemecek of Dallas-based DMA Solutions Inc., an event organizer.
