About Little Black Dress

The Betty Kearns Little Black Dress event was established in 2007, with the purpose of raising funds for local Breast Cancer Programs.

In 2016, the Betty Kearns Cancer Fund was established to help both men and women fighting any type of cancer.

Currently, the Betty Kearns Cancer Fund has funds available at McLaren Port Huron, The Community Foundation and Lake Huron Medical Center to assist individuals in need.

We appreciate the community support we receive! With an increased number of patients in our area, and a state-of-the-art cancer facility and treatment center, we are hoping to be able to help even more families. Your contribution to the Little Black Dress event will only improve our efforts in easing financial burdens during treatment, allowing patients to focus on healing.

Thank you for all of your years of support!
