Celebrating 10 Years of Yes, Mamm!
A Program Built on Generosity
In the last 10 years, Yes, Mamm! raised more than $3.5 million to provide 4,500 screening mammograms, 850 diagnostic mammograms, 900 ultrasounds, and $30,500 in transportation assistance, in addition to counseling, education and supplies, such as wigs, chemo caps and lymphedema sleeves.
“Our community partners support Yes, Mamm! in more ways than just financial support,” Herald said. “They get the word out, they provide their customers with pamphlets and brochures, especially during Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October. We really enjoy and appreciate our partnership with all of our community contributors.”
The auction raised $385,000 with half of the proceeds, $192,000, benefitting Yes, Mamm! — the largest single donation to Yes, Mamm! since the program began.
“Through the continued support of our dealers, customers and business partners, we have been proud and honored to contribute to the fight against breast cancer,” said Eric Sauvage, president and CEO of LBX Company. “We have been supporting the Yes, Mamm! program in their journey to bring awareness for early detection of breast cancer, and increase the survival rate in our communities and in our nation.”
Randy Denney of Denney Excavating, Indianapolis, Indiana, won the auction with his bid of $375,000 for the 15.2-metric ton Link-Belt 145 X4 excavator.“I have a large number of close friends affected [by breast cancer], so it was the right thing for me to do,” Denney said.Jay Shafer, winner of the 2020 Pink-Belt Auction, donated $10,000 in addition to Denney’s winning bid. Over the past three years, LBX Company has donated $303,750 in support of Yes, Mamm! through auction proceeds.
