Vera Bradley Classic Scores Over $1 Million

The Vera Bradley Classic generates dollars to support the Vera Bradley Foundation through women involved in a tennis doubles tournament at Wildwood Racquet Club, an 18-hole golf tournament at Sycamore Hills Golf Club and a 9-Hole Tournament at Fort Wayne Country Club with over 500 participants involved this year. Markey’s Rental & Staging was involved in the Golf Celebration Dinner held the evening of June 5th at the Sycamore Hills Golf Club.


Since 1994, the Vera Bradley Classic generates dollars to fund breast cancer research efforts at the IU Melvin and Bren Simon Cancer Center which houses the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer Research Laboratories. A check in the amount of $1,052,717 was presented at the Golf Celebration Dinner bringing the total to $26 million which moves the needle closer to its $35 million pledge.
