Businesses ban together for the second annual Boot Out Cancer event
Gurley Street Grill, The Office Cantina and Murphy's Restaurant banded together in the second annual Boot Out Cancer event this October to raise funds for the BreastCare Center at Yavapai Regional. Funds were raised from Oct. 1 through 31 by selling boot koozies and t-shirts and through generous donations from the community. This event was also a fun competition between the communities of Prescott and Kingman Arizona to raise the most money to Boot Out Cancer. The challenge was issued that whichever community raised the least, the Police Chief, Fire Chief and Hospital CEO would don pink hair in support of Booting Out Cancer. This year $15,738.39 was raised to be donated to the Kingman Cancer Care Unit. $8,132.34 was raised to donate to the BreastCare Center at Yavapai Regional. The official donation of funds to Yavapai Regional occurred Wednesday, Nov. 18, 2015 and the funds will be used to help women who may not be able to afford mammograms, transportation to and from the hospital.
