2012 Vera Bradley Classic

Over the past week, 1,000 people – players, volunteers and supporters – gathered to show their athleticism, their style and, most importantly, their commitment to finding a cure for breast cancer at the 2012 Vera Bradley Classic. Women from 11 states came to Fort Wayne to participate in the 4-day golf and tennis tournament, one of the largest amateur women’s events in the country.

When the final putt fell, this year’s event raised an amazing $1,001,145, all of which will benefit research at Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Cancer Center.

“The first Vera Bradley Classic, almost 20 years ago, raised about $60,000, and we were excited,” Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer Co-founder Barbara Bradley Baekgaard said. “To raise more than $1 million for the cause this year inspires our hope that a cure is within reach.”
