Sun Sentinel Palm Beach Edition - Society Scene - Palm Beach - - Scene & Be Seen -

The Sun Sen­tinel’s Life’s Vic­to­ries’ “Party in Pink” will be a night of glitz and glam­our, with guests sa­vor­ing hors d’oeu­vres, ex­quis­ite desserts and sip­ping fab­u­lous cock­tails.

More­over, it will be a night to honor, ap­pre­ci­ate and rec­og­nize courageous women in their bat­tle against breast can­cer.

The party is set for Oct. 24, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. at 110 Tower, 110 SE 6th St., Fort Laud­erdale.

Not only will the night be a spe­cial one for all in at­ten­dance, but a por­tion of the pro­ceeds will ben­e­fit Gilda’s Club South Florida, a free can­cer sup­port com­mu­nity for women, men, chil­dren and teens who are bat­tling can­cer.

”The Sun Sen­tinel be­lieves it’s im­por­tant to not only in­crease pub­lic aware­ness of breast can­cer dur­ing Breast Can­cer Aware­ness month and through­out the year, but to also sup­port those who have en­dured the dif­fi­cult jour­ney bat­tling this disease,” said Ray Da­ley, Sun Sen­tinel’s vice pres­i­dent of ad­ver­tis­ing. “We are hon­ored to give back to the com­mu­nity in any way pos­si­ble, and the Life’s Vic­to­ries pro­gram is an ex­am­ple of that.”

Sun Sen­tinel’s Life’s Vic­to­ries pro­gram, in its sixth year, fea­tures breast can­cer sur­vivors shar­ing their in­spi­ra­tional sto­ries and ex­pe­ri­ences. The pro­gram is spon­sored by Cleve­land Clinic Florida, Holy Cross Hos­pi­tal, Broward Health, Hu­mana, Carl’s Fur­ni­ture and UMSylvester Com­pre­hen­sive Can­cer Center. In ad­di­tion to the pro­gram’s spon­sors, the party is also spon­sored by Ad­c­ahb.

Tick­ets for the event are $50, and can be pur­chased by vis­it­ing www.SunSen­tinel.com/PinkTix.

The event’s ben­e­fi­ciary, Gilda’s Club, of­fers net­work­ing groups lec­tures, work­shops, chil­dren and teen pro­grams, and so­cial events on a non-res­i­den­tial, non-med­i­cal home-like set­ting. For more in­for­ma­tion about Gilda’s Club, visit www. gildas­club­south­florida.org.
