Annual Spring Brunch – Miles of Hope

Spring is on the way! You are invited to the the 12th Annual Miles of Hope Spring Brunch on Sunday, May 1, 2016, at 11:00 am at the Grandview in Poughkeepsie, NY.

In 2014, Miles of Hope raised more than $500,000 to fund support programs for people affected by breast cancer in our Hudson Valley. Nearly one-fourth of that was raised at the Annual Spring Brunch.

In its eleven-year history of funding support services for people affected by breast cancer, Miles of Hope has given away more than $1,000,000.

We greatly appreciate your donation and welcome it! Unfortunately, it is too late to be included in the Brunch Program. Please know that with your generosity, we are able to help people affected by breast cancer within the 8 counties of the Hudson Valley. Thank you!

Your support is critical to the continued success of Miles of Hope.

Please join us in making a difference in the lives of those touched by Breast Cancer.

How to Donate Silent Auction Items Using Your Credit Card Points

rewards What’s a great way to help Miles of Hope and not dip into your checkbook or wallet?

Use your points from your credit card like American Express, Visa or Mastercard to purchase an item: jewelry, sports or concert tickets, electronic devices – TVs, computers, tablets, phones!

This is easy to do — just go to the website of your credit card and determine how many points you have — they automatically accumulate when you make a purchase with your credit card.

The site will walk you through the process of using your points to purchase an item. Once we have received it with the dollar value, we will issue you a receipt for the donation for your taxes. It’s that simple!


Giving Tree
All of the following services are part of the Miles of Hope Medical Gap Care Fund, which was established to help individuals who reside in one of the eight counties of the Hudson Valley and are in treatment for breast cancer with a financial emergency not covered by insurance.
Purchase one of these services, get a Miles of Hope Ribbon Ornament to indicate your purchase, and we will hang it on our Giving Trees at the luncheon for all to admire!

At this year’s Brunch, Miles of Hope honored Marist College. Since the foundation’s inception 11 years ago, Marist has not only been encouraging of the foundation, but financially supportive as well. Marist women’s soccer, women’s lacrosse, women’s basketball and the entire Athletic department have raised money with breast cancer games, and hosted the foundation’s events. Marist Athletic Director Tim Murray was at the Brunch to represent Marist in accepting the foundation’s thanks and appreciation.  See videos above.
