Mastectomy Pillow Project!  Comfort Pillows

Since 2004, we’ve been tirelessly crafting Comfort Pillows by hand for breast cancer patients. This remarkable accomplishment is the culmination of more than 15 years of unwavering commitment and fundraising for our cause. In 2019, we marked a major milestone by reaching the impressive goal of producing 15,000 Comfort Pillows. These pillows are distributed through the Munson-Smith Family Breast Cancer Center in Traverse City, MI.


Every year, scholarships are granted to residents of Benzie County who attend either Benzie Central High School or Frankfort High School. Additionally, women who are returning to undergraduate school or
seeking to advance their careers through certification programs have the chance to apply for scholarships. These scholarships consist of three awards, each worth $1,000, for a total annual contribution of $3,000 to support young women in the area who are recent high school graduates.  Women returning to school are eligible for a $500 scholarship.
