To date, BrAva has donated more than $240,000 to CureSearch and local families affected by childhood cancer.

Since Christmas, no less than seven new families with children diagnosed with cancer have been adopted by BrAva, and this event, as well as others by this group, intend to continue their effort to help fund finding a cure for cancer.
