WCCO-TV and Aristea Brady are fundraising for Hope Chest as part of her participation in Dancing with the Twin Cities Celebrities. Each dancer in the competition competes for a charity of his or her choice. Aristea chose Hope Chest.
Dancing with the Twin Cities Celebrities
A one-night charity ball where six local “celebrities” team up with a dance partner from Arthur Murray to compete on the dance floor while raising money for a local charity of their choice. Check out their website for more details.
Hope Chest for Breast Cancer
A local organization that works to support local, low-income women fighting breast cancer. Through monetary donations and proceeds from their consignment shops, Hope Chest is able to provide emergency financial assistance to women fighting breast cancer.
This emergency financial assistance includes paying for rent, utilities, transportation and childcare. They also provide nutritious meals for the women. Check out their website for more information.
During the WCCO Phone Bank, 100 percent of the proceeds raised will benefit Hope Chest.
