Victorious in pink: ‘Party in Pink’ recognizes local breast cancer survivors
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.
