Hi Fred,

We wanted to let you and the other members of the Rumford Eagles know how much we appreciate your efforts to raise funds for the Maine Breast Cancer Coalition Support Service Fund through the Pink Sock Foundation.  We had a great time this weekend and really enjoyed meeting many Rumford Eagles members.  We are so impressed with your hard work and committment to serving people in need!


Thanks for all you do and for the warm welcome you extended to us.  Please relay this message to the wonderful Eagles people we met before the Bob Marley show and at the club the next day.


Chris Haiss, Elaine Siracusa-Magid, Kathie Roy, Nancy Fortin





   The Eagles Pink Sock Foundation was founded in 2003. Four men wearing white tuxedos were sitting having a meeting. As a joke they thought how it would look if they were wearing pink socks with their white tux's.  When they did, they told each other, we should do something with this. Hence the Eagles Pink Sock Foundation was born with a cause to aid breast cancer patients in Maine

   The Maine Breast Cancer Coalition recently received a donation of more than $7,200 from the Pink Sock Foundation.  This money was raised by the Fraternal Order of Eagles clubs throughout Maine.  This is the third consecutive year the Eagles have contributed to the Support Service fund of this statewide coalition.  MBCC has been providing services to people in Maine since 1992, and the Support Service Fund, started in the year 2000, provides financial assistance to residents of the state with breast health and breast cancer-related needs.  Grants from the Fund total about $75,000 each year and provide needed help to approximately 150 Maine residents.
