The Fourth Annual Dine Out and Shop for the Walk to Fight Breast Cancer will take place on Tuesday, Oct. 21. It will raise money for Alexandrias Breast Cancer Fund for Early Detection and Education administered by the Inova Alexandria Hospital Foundation. Twenty-nine Alexandria restaurants and stores will be donating a portion of their proceeds from October 21 to support the Fund.
The fund has received more than $1 million from the Dine Out and Shop event and the Walk to Fight Breast Cancer since its inception in 1994. The fund has paid for mammograms and other early detection services for nearly 5,000 under-insured Alexandria residents.
