The black tie ball will take place at Moor Park Mansion in Rickmansworth and raise funds for the charity so it can offer grants to breast cancer patients of limited financial means.
Entertainment will be provided through live music, table-top magic, silent auction and a casino.
Tickets cost £100 which includes dinner, and £10 for the evening reception.

The 2014 European super middleweight champion will visit the centre in East Avenue, Hayes on Sunday, April 12 in a bid to inspire young kids to get fit.
The boxer from Hammersmith is the former Commonwealth and British titleholder in the Super Middleweight division and will be participating in a range of activities from midday to 5pm, with the aim of encouraging children to learn ways to exercise.
Mr Groves said: “I’m delighted to be involved and really looking forward to the day. I’m hoping to meet future boxers of course, but all sports are fantastic and I hope to see many young faces having fun trying new activities.”
Botwell Green Centre, which is run by the charitable social enterprise GLL, has also organised a soccer session with QPR Soccer School from midday to 1pm and a dance class by Passion Dance Academy from 1pm to 2pm.
Youngsters can enjoy the pool party between 1pm and 4pm and a karate class from 2pm to 3pm, as well as a Get Crafty session in the crèche for all ages. Two multi-sports sessions will be taking place from 3pm to 4pm and 4pm to 5pm and there will also be reading sessions in the library and the junior gym will be open for those aged 11 to 15 years.
There is free ice cream between 4pm and 5pm for everyone who has taken part, with each participant receiving a goody bag.
Visitors to the open day can participate in activities from as little as £1. Those becoming members of Botwell Green Sports and Leisure Centre will only have to pay a £1 joining fee if they join on the day.
