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.
