Gail Chevallier Beach, formerly of Natchez, who now resides in Houston, is the president/director the Harley’s Angels. On Thursday, Sept. 27, Beach personally presented checks of more than $70,000 to Dr. Kelly Hunt and Dr. Samuel Hassenbauch of M.D. Anderson Cancer Center and to Dr. Kent Osborne of Baylor College of Medicine, Breast Cancer Center at the Harley’s Angels annual formal dinner for check presentations.

Harley’s Angels is a group of women motorcycle enthusiasts that have joined together for the purposes of raising money for research, promoting education toward awareness and early detection of breast cancer.

The Harley’s Angels primary fundraising project is the publication of a calendar featuring the Harley’s Angels and our motorcycles.

After seven successful calendars produced, the Harley’s Angels have generated and donated more than $300,000 to M. D. Anderson Cancer Center and Baylor College of Medicine Breast Cancer Center. The most recent presentation and donation was last week with a Sponsor Appreciation and 2008 Calendar “unveiling” dinner at Shirley Acres with over 200 in attendance.

Harley’s Angels is a non-profit 501(c)3 volunteer organization.

We would like to invite you to join us in the crusade to find a cure for breast cancer. If you would like to make a donation or purchase a calendar, please visit
