They will be offering several raffles at the peach festival, including one for an antique doll house that Glass has restored.
The three partners were further motivated to raise money this year by the death in April of Bridget Spence.
“She was 29. She’d had breast cancer since she was 21,” DeSoto said. “She lived in Boston for many years and was well-known in the breast-cancer community. She had an impact on all of us.”
Spence recorded her struggles with breast cancer and treatments for her disease, in a blog called “My Big Girl Pants.”
“She was able to spend more time with her family because of clinical research,” DeSoto said. “We really want to focus on research and finding a cure.”
