To support and empower individuals and communities affected by breast cancer. A Cause for Entertainment’s goal is to raise awareness and funds to support research, education and the individuals and families who are currently facing a breast cancer diagnosis.
A Note from Our Founder Jessica Sherman
A Cause for Entertainment was founded in 2015 with the soul purpose to raise awareness and funds to support the fight against breast cancer.
Like many, during the summer of 2008 my life was touched by cancer. My grandmother, who was my best friend, was diagnosed with both breast and colon cancer. It breaks my heart that this is just one of many stories I can tell, but it has motivated me to take action. Shortly after my grandmother was diagnosed, I started working with the Avon Foundation and began participating in the 39.3-mile walk in Santa Barbara with the largest crowd of survivors and supporters I’ve ever seen. After 6 years of working with Avon I was inspired to do more, and thus A Cause for Entertainment was born.
With the support of the television/film, sports and music industry, we were able to raise approximately $18,000 in our first year and more than doubled last year, raising an astonishing $42,000 to support the cause. This year’s goal is to reach $75,000.
