“Shades of Harmony Chorus” a Chapter of Sweet Adelines International, Region 19 located in Williamstown, NJ would like to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness in October 2020. The benefiting charity we will raise money for is the "American Cancer Society" in their "Raise Money for Breast Cancer Campaign."
In May 2020 Shades of Harmony Chorus, under the direction of Lori Ludlum, was supposed to compete in a Regional Competition in Lancaster, PA. The chorus had a goal that we were aiming for a score of 550 or higher at the Region 19 Competition. However, due to the Pandemic; the Regional Competition was cancelled and the chorus had to stop fighting for that goal of 550 when the Competition was cancelled.
The Covid Pandemic took so much from the chorus as well as from Sweet Adelines across the country. We had to switch to “Zoom” rehearsals and have been trying to find ways to still be connected remotely. Our performances have been cancelled. The chorus would sing at such places as nursing homes and libraries; but those were all cancelled.
That's why this October, Shades of Harmony Chorus is going to get up, go out, and do something to help the public. We are not able to sing together for the public during this Pandemic; however that won't stop us from reaching out to help the public by other means!
We have decided to have a “Shades of Harmony Breast Cancer Awareness Virtual Walk” to raise money to help fight Breast Cancer. To top it off, we set a goal that we are hoping to raise $550 for Breast Cancer Awareness. The 550 amount was picked because that is the score we were aiming for from the Regional Competition that was cancelled in May.
Members of Shades of Harmony will have pink ribbons on and will go out and participate virtually together either by walking or biking or by other fun activities of their choice.
Please will you help support our "Virtual Walk." All of the money donated goes directly to the American Cancer Society for their "Raise Money for Breast Cancer" Campaign. Shades of Harmony does NOT receive any money from the donations from the Virtual Walk.
Please help us be able to do something positive during these unprecedented times! Please help support the Shades of Harmony Breast Cancer Awareness Virtual Walk!
Thank you for your support

Did you know…Nearly 270,000 people will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year. That could be your mother, sister, daughter, your wife, or even you. Whether it's fueling breast cancer research or providing patients with rides to treatment and personal assistance understanding their diagnosis, fundraising for the American Cancer Society makes a real difference in the fight against breast cancer.
