BAT RAFFLE TO SUPPORT BREAST CANCER: Two Niles convenience stores will raffle pink baseball bats signed by the 2019 Mahoning Valley Scrappers to benefit the Joanie Abdu Comprehensive Breast Care Center and to ensure that anyone in need of breast diagnostic services has access to the best care available regardless of ability to pay. The idea for the fundraiser comes from Niles native Jeff McFallswho purchased and painted the bats, worked with the general manager of the Mahoning Valley Scrappers, Jordan Taylor, to get them signed by the 2019 team, and arranged for two local convenience stores to sell raffle ickets.

The bats are on display at Pope’s, 158 North Road, and Red Dragon Convenient, 505 N. Main Street. Tickets cost $1 each. The drawing will take place Oct. 31, marking the end of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. All proceeds will be presented to Mercy Health Foundation Mahoning Valley for the benefit of the Joanie Abdu Comprehensive Breast Care Center and the Joanie’s Promise Fund, which eliminates barriers to care for anyone in need.

Since it opened in November 2011, the Joanie Abdu Comprehensive Breast Care Center has performed more than 83,000 exams.

For information on how to support the Joanie Abdu Comprehensive Breast Care Center, Joanie’s Promise Fund or other programs that improve the health of Mahoning Valley residents call 330-729-1180.
