Dear Friends of the Foundation:

As we reflect on 2010, it has been a year of quiet growth for the Foundation. Despite the tough economic climate, the Foundation has been able to make significant contributions to advanced breast cancer research.

The third annual Golf for a Cure outing moved to Shaker Country Club in suburban Cleveland, Ohio, where we partnered with the Miracle Fund of University Hospitals to broaden the scope of the outing. The event sold out in advance of the June 17th date, and netted $60,000, which was in turn invested in the Miracle Fund at Ireland Cancer Center (at University Hospitals). This was the most successful Golf for a Cure to date, and we look forward to even more success in 2011 when once again we will host the event at Shaker Country Club on Thursday, June 18.

During October, Breast Cancer Awareness month, two friends of the Foundation, Eddie’s House (restaurant) and Hava Java (coffee shop) in Phoenix sponsored promotions to benefit the Foundation. Eddie Matney, executive chef and owner of Eddie’s House, offered both a luncheon and dinner entrée at his popular restaurant, the proceeds from which were donated in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness. Likewise, Hava Java customers contributed during October as part of their fund-raising promotion. Our heartfelt thanks to Eddie's House restaurant and Hava Java for their friendship and support.

Finally, thanks to all our friends, donors, sponsors, volunteers, research partners, and others in the Mountains of Hope circle of supporters who continue to make the Foundation stronger.  As you consider your year-end tax planning, please remember that every dollar donated to the Foundation is a dollar directly invested in advanced breast cancer research with world-class scientists at Memorial Sloan Kettering in New York, TGen Foundation in Phoenix, and the Ireland Cancer Center of University Hospitals in Cleveland.

Donations can be made online through our website, www.MountainsOfHopeFoundation.org, or by mail to: P.O. Box 80500, Phoenix, AZ 85060-0500. Your gifts to the Foundation are fully tax deductible.

Our sincere wishes for peace and joy this holiday season – and for good health and prosperity in the New Year.

Happy Holidays!


Allen J. Gula, Jr.
Foundation Chairman & CEO
