Kiwanis Club of Poquoson Donates to Beyond Boobs! to Help Breast Cancer Survivors

Rick Neff, President of the Kiwanis Club of Poquoson, recently presented a donation check for $4,400 from the club's 17th annual Christine Garvey Memorial Soccer Tournament to Rene Bowditch, Co-Founder and President of Beyond Boobs!, a nonprofit helping improve the lives of young women living with breast cancer.

For the tournament, the Club partnered with Beyond Boobs! and Edmarc Hospice for Children, which improves the lives of children in the community one child at a time. Kiwanian Pat Garvey founded the tournament 17 years ago after losing his wife to breast cancer as a way to direct his grief toward something positive.
