The 2nd Annual Bubbles & Boobs FUNdraising event was held to benefit the locally based
Compassionate Hands and Hearts Breast Cancer Outreach Program (CHHBO) this past weekend on
October 19th. Raising funds, awareness, and most importantly raising FUN…. Always with and emphasis
on the FUN in FUNdraising!!
CHHBO, was founded by breast cancer survivor and local TV anchorwoman, Vanessa Echols in 2007.
Vanessa is an Oviedo resident and sits as the Founder/President of the organization. CHHBO send every
penny to the community as they have no paid staff, all volunteer base. CHHBCO fills a much need in our
community for breast cancer patients. In fact, to many of us, this need was not known to the masses. A
small piece of what this organization does is take patients to chemo appointments, buying groceries,
paying rent, paying for utilities. There is so much more they do so I invite you to check out their web
site at https://www.compassionatehandsandhearts.org/. You will be moved to donate, I am sure!!
When you do, make a note that you found them with placing the hashtag of #BB2019 into the notes section of the donations page.
Bubbles & Boobs is a 501(c)(3) organization missioned to spark “Bubble Parties” to raise money to
fight Breast Cancer & raise Breast Cancer awareness & wellness discussions while celebrating
National Champagne Day across the globe. Headquartered in Washington, DC, B&B was founded by
Maureen Blum, a lifelong friend of Oviedo Resident and 14+ year Breast Cancer survivor Linda Schulte.
Linda is stepping in as the Orlando captain. As a Bubbles & Boobs board member, Linda is resuming
her role as the Orlando Team Captain. This year “Bubble Parties” will be held on 3 continents, in 8
states and DC as well as 2 virtual parties. Some states, such as Florida held two Bubble Parties, Miami
Beach and Orlando. To learn more about Bubbles and Boobs, visit their web site at http://www.BubblesAndBoobs.com.
This year, the Orlando event doubled the attendance from last year and nearly doubled the total funds
brought in…. the event is sponsored by local Real Estate Brokerage, Schulte Realty. Schulte Realty is and
has always been highly involved in giving back to the community through various organizations including
the MS Society of Mid Florida, Whipping Childhood Cancer events including “KK’s Christmas Toy Drive”
