Vestal, NY (WBNG Binghamton) More than 40 area businesses come together, all in the name of helping those with breast cancer.

Businesses put their creativity to use, creating unique wreaths to be auctioned off Friday as part of the first ever Deck the Hearth Wreath Event.

"Some wreaths you can use year after year and some of them have valuable prizes on them. So There's great value for different businesses that decide to put on gift cards or discount coupons, even products on them," said Chris Lindstrom, director of community relations for the Hearth at Castle Gardens.

All money raised goes to Traci's hope which helps local women battling breast cancer with expenses like gas to appointments, daycare or even household bills.
