We Love Our Racks Campaign to Raise Funds and Awareness for the King’s Daughters Health Foundation Mammogram Fund
ASHLAND, Ky., October 1, 2019 — It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Smokin’ J’s is taking a big stand with their “We Love Our Racks” campaign. This locally owned and operated business is teaming up with the community to raise funds for the King’s Daughters Health Foundation Mammogram Fund. King’s Daughters uses this fund to pay for potentially lifesaving mammograms for underinsured and uninsured locals in the tri-state.
How do you get involved? Eat ribs! For the entire month of October, Smokin’ J’s is donating $3 for every rack of ribs sold, that includes dine-in, to-go, and catering orders. They are also selling “We Love Our Racks” t-shirts for $15 and $1 Ribbon Cards in memory/in honor of loved ones and friends that have battled or are battling breast cancer. 100% of the proceeds go directly to the mammogram fund.
“Breast cancer is a tragic disease that has likely affected everyone in some way. My mother is a two-time breast cancer survivor, so this cause is very near and dear to my heart. We are excited to work with our community to raise these much needed funds for this great cause,” says Jason Camp, CEO and Owner of The 3J Group.
October 29th, King’s Daughters Health Foundation Mammogram Fund is Smokin’ J’s featured Give Back Tuesday. Come in between 11 AM and 10 PM and mention to your server that you are there to support KDMC and 15% of your bill will be donated directly to the Mammogram Fund. Smokin’ J’s features a different organization every Tuesday. Follow their Facebook page to see all of the other organizations you can help in the future, as well.
The King’s Daughters Mammogram Mobile Truck will be parked at Smokin’ J’s on October 19th from 10-2 PM. If you’d like to make an appointment for a mammogram on that day you can call the centralized scheduling mammogram line: 606-408-1111. That line is also open all year long, the mobile truck runs all year long, and there is no need for a physician’s referral for an annual screening.
The Mammogram Truck has the same 3D technology that the Imaging Center in Ashland has. There is also a location in southern Ohio. The grant money used from the mammogram fund is conﬁdential and not kept on any kind of record. If you are in need of a mammogram and are underinsured or uninsured, please reach out to King’s Daughters and let them take care of you.
