Local Sugar House holds annual breast cancer breakfast
Pomeroy Sugar House in Westfield raised $3124.86 for breast cancer research on Sunday.
WESTFIELD, MA (WSHM) -
For the fifth year in a row, Pomeroy Sugar House in Westfield held a benefit breakfast in memory of co-founder Debbie Pomeroy.
Debbie passed away following a battle with breast cancer shortly after opening the sugar house in 1998 with her husband, Harlow.
“Years past have gone great,” Randy Pomeroy, a co-owner of the Pomeroy Sugar House said. “It's usually on a last Sunday of the season but this year we decided to do something a little different to kick off March Maple Month with the benefit breakfast.”
In 2014, the Pomeroy Sugar House donated $2485 to breast cancer research.
Today, they were able to raise $3124.86 which will be split between the Dana Farber Cancer Institute and Rays of Hope.
“This will be our 17th year serving breakfast,” Randy Pomeroy said, who runs the sugar house with his sister Rachel. “They know spring means maple syrup so people come in, have some breakfast and pick up some maple syrup!” Copyright 2015 WSHM (Meredith Corporation). All rights reserved.
