When: Thursday, September 29
Where: Newburgh Brewing Company, Newburgh
What: In its eighth year, the Orange County YMCA’s BRAzaar event promotes an interesting twist on the idea of raising awareness. Each year, artists are asked to donate a unique piece, crafted by hand and made from a bra. Guests are encouraged to vote for their favorite, participate in a group “paint along,” and enjoy the food and drinks provided by Newburgh Brewing Company. All ticket proceeds go towards the Orange County Cancer Services Program.

Cornwall Walk/Run for Cancer
When: Saturday, October 29
Where: Cornwall Riverlight Park, Cornwall
What: The community-oriented Cornwall Walk/Run for Cancer is in its 12th year of delivering attendees’ donations to cancer resource- and research-facilities in the area. There is a 5K or 10K course available, and sign-ups open the day of the race at 7 am. You can choose to have your run timed, but looking at last year’s results, you might be better off walking to save your energy (and dignity).
