United Heritage Charity Foundation gives $25,000 to support breast cancer resources
The United Heritage Charity Foundation Sponsored Art Bra Austin: Museum Nights in support of the Breast Cancer Resource Center
AUSTIN, TEXAS (June 8, 2023) — United Heritage Charity Foundation (UHCF) recognizes the importance of healthcare and medical services that make an impact in its local community. That is why when the Charity Foundation saw the opportunity to collaborate with the Breast Cancer Resource Center (BCRC), its Board members made the call to see how they could partner with them for the second quarter of the year.
The Breast Cancer Resource Center’s mission is to provide services free of charge to anyone affected by breast cancer in the Central Texas area and make a positive impact within the local communities. As BCRC’s Mission Sponsor for Art Bra Austin: Museum Nights, UHCF supports this organization’s commitment to encouraging individuals to become knowledgeable participants in their healthcare while providing personalized and compassionate care. Art Bra Austin is a one-of-a-kind transformative and immersive experience. Each year, artists submit work to be worn by breast cancer survivors and clients of the Breast Cancer Resource Center. During the May 13 fundraiser, BCRC clients walked the runway and shared stories of their journeys with breast cancer. United Heritage Charity Foundation contributed $25,000 toward Art Bra Austin as the Mission Sponsor for the event. Activities during the event, which included donations from UHCU employees and many others, auctions of the art bras, a silent auction and more, resulted in $625,000 raised for the organization.
“Not only was the runway show exciting to see, it was special because this organization highlights a very personal matter that many Central Texans and UHCU employees have ties to,” says UHCF Chairman Chelsea Schrimpf who was in attendance with fellow Charity Foundation Vice Chairman, Kevin Farley; and senior leaders from United Heritage Credit Union (UHCU). BCRC empowers Central Texans experiencing changes, while fighting the disease, through community outreach and education. The money raised will help aid women in overcoming obstacles that erode their quality of life and provide screenings, treatment plans, emotional support and more.
