(Buffalo, NY) It‘s been 11 consecutive years, since Ida Goeckel, a local female bass
player, and now two time breast cancer survivor, founded and organized the first annual
Female Musicians Fighting Breast Cancer Benefit. The 12th Anniversary Female
Musicians Fighting Breast Cancer benefit is once again set to raise awareness and funds for
the WNY Breast Cancer Resource Center, the go-to support and information center on the
grounds of Roswell Park Cancer Institute.  It is where patients and their support network
can learn to make informed choices and become better equipped to explore their
treatment options.

The event will occur on Sunday October 19th, 2014 at The Forvm at 4224 Maple Rd. at the
Maple Entertainment Complex, in Amherst, N.Y.  Doors will open at 1:30 p.m. with four
local bands, featuring female members, donating their talent to perform from 2:00
p.m.-7:00.p.m. This year we are proud to return to our roots of supporting homebred WNY
original musicians!  It promises to be another fine gathering of some of the best live
entertainment you will see/hear anywhere.

The entire community is invited to support this worthy
cause. For further information contact the F.M.F.B.C. benefit founder and organizer, Ms.
Goeckel, at: and be sure to visit us at  as well as at!/FemaleMusiciansFightingBreastCancer
