About 150 gathered for the 2nd annual Clays for the Cure event, sponsored by Home Depot and presented by A Glimmer of Hope Foundation. The event, held on June 24 at Seven Springs Mountain Resort in Seven Springs, PA, raised $43,000 and benefited the largest under 40 premenopausal breast cancer study in the country at Magee-Womens Research Institute, as well as the Hillman Cancer Center.

More than 100 of the attendees participated in the clays shooting part of the event. The winning team included Scott Reed, Jerry Ciolkosz, Jeff Wolfe, Chris Stahl, and Joe Zeitler. The event also boasted a silent auction with autographed items from Heath Miller, spokesperson for A Glimmer of Hope, Alan Faneca, Larry Fitzgerald, and more. The auction raised $9,000.

“We wanted to do something unique and Home Depot brought the clays suggestion to us,” says Diana Napper, founder of A Glimmer of Hope. She adds that people from Home Depot attended the Bid for Hope event and were interested in helping women under 40 who are diagnosed with breast cancer.
