This Means War Against Breast Cancer

Helping Trumbull County Survivors Wage War Against Breast Cancer

Join us in October!

The 2022 War Against Breast Cancer Raffle-Auction & Vendor Show will be held on Oct. 1 and Oct. 2, 2022 at the Trumbull County Fairgrounds. 

We are looking to build on the success from our 2021 event where we featured more than 270 raffle-auction items, roughly 30 vendors, food vendors, live music, kids activities and a mobile mammography van. 

If you would like to become a vendor for the event, contact us for an application at [email protected].

More details to come, but mark your calendar now to join us!

Thank you for making our 2021 event a success!

We feel so incredibly humbled and blessed by the outpouring of support we saw for Rachel Elliott during the War Against Breast Cancer Raffle-Auction & Vendor Show. 

We witnessed so many acts of kindness that our hearts are simply full - such as when the winner of Sunday’s 50/50 drawing wrote the name of Rachel’s husband on the raffle ticket so the Elliott family would receive the winnings and when Sam who had read about Rachel’s story in the newspaper brought a new flat-screen TV to donate to the family. 

Whether you bought a raffle ticket, shopped with our vendors or donated money, a basket or your time you helped make this weekend a success. 

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for rallying behind and lifting up the Elliott family during such a challenging time.

Our mission is to help breast cancer survivors

Our goal is to help breast cancer survivors who live in Trumbull County with their lost wages and their out-of-pocket expenses related to their diagnosis. 

We pick one survivor a year and make him or her part of our family.

Each fall, our all-volunteer group will host a fundraiser with the net proceeds benefiting our fundraiser beneficiary.

Our family friendly event typically attracts more than 500 people from throughout Ohio.

Since our first fundraiser in 2011, we have raised more than $117,000 for 11 survivors.
