Battle of the Bartenders Fargo

Every 3 minutes a woman in the United States is diagnosed with Breast Cancer. The Edith Sanford Breast Center is a leader in Breast Cancer screening and research, helping in the fight to find a cure. They are teaming up with local businesses to help raise money in the fight against Breast Cancer.

Cornerstone Bank, Benchmark Mortgage and Sanford Health Foundation present the Battle of the Bartenders, Tuesday, July 17, 4:30-7:30 p.m. at Frank’s Lounge in Fargo. All proceeds stay local and benefit the Edith Sanford Breast Center through the Sanford Health Foundation.

“We are excited to team up with Cornerstone Bank and Benchmark Mortgage to raise funds for the Edith Sanford Breast Center in Fargo. Funds raised at this event will be used to provide breast cancer research and care for our local patients through advanced diagnosis, treatment and survivorship,” says Colleen Hardly of the Sanford Health Foundation.
