Onmay 7 Autonation Inc. and Holy Cross Hospital Foundation will present the “Melanoma Moonwalk and Full Moon Party” to honor Jane Katterhenry as Queen of the Full Moon.
The event will take place at the Pelican Grand Beach Resort located in Fort Lauderdale. Registration begins at 7 p.m. and the one-mile round trip walk down the beach will start at 7:30 p.m. At 8:30 p.m., the crowning of the Queen of the Full Moon will take place. Raffle tickets for hotel stay, dinners and roundtrip airline tickets will be drawn at 9 p.m. Guests are encouraged to wear casual business or island attire.
Jane Katterhenry is currently vice president of marketing for Regent Bank, which she joined in 2001. Throughout her career, Katterhenry has served on the boards of community organizations including: Girl Scouts of Broward County; Jack & Jill Children’s Center; Family Service Agency; New River Business Exchange; The Broward Roundtable; March of Dimes; Big Brothers Big Sisters; and the Fort Lauderdale Historical Society. She is a graduate of Leadership Broward and has served as president of the Junior League.
“Jane is currently battling melanoma and this event was started in her honor because there didn’t seem to be any fundraising or awareness of event for melanoma,” said event co-chair Gale Butler. “Considering the amount of sunny days in South Florida and the risk that can pose, this event’s time has come.”
Other sponsors include: Mad4marketing; Regent Bank; and The Advertising Department. Proceeds will be donated to the American Cancer Society.
Melanoma is the most common form of cancer for young adults 25-29 years old and the second most common cancer in adolescents and young adults 15-29 years old. Although melanoma is most common in caucasians, melanoma can strike men and women of all ages, all races and all skin types.
Tickets are $65. For more information, email Gale Butler at But[email protected]tonation.com.
