Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer Classic


The annual Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer Classic® in Fort Wayne, Indiana gathers more than 2,500 guests, players and volunteers for a beautiful sporting event of golf, yoga and pickleball to raise funds for breast cancer research. This fun and friendly competition allows you to invest in a team of the best, the brightest and the most passionate researchers in the world. Researchers at the Vera Bradley Foundation Center for Breast Cancer Research are pursing ideas that will ultimately change the face of breast cancer thanks to you!

Pick one event...or participate in all three, and then join us for the Celebration Dinner. At the Celebration Dinner, you'll hear first-hand how you are helping to change lives forever, and we'll announce the results of our fundraising efforts.

Join us and be a part of the inspiration that keeps us moving forward!

With the committed support of our valued sponsors, players and volunteers, the Vera Bradley Foundation Classic raised $1,005,935 in 2018.
