A Million Plus for Pink

Some 800 guests attended the Breast Cancer Alliance’s 14th annual Benefit Luncheon and Fashion Show. Rather ironically, the event’s overarching message, which managed to raise $1.2 million for breast cancer research, was the importance of early detection—just weeks before a federal board announced that mammograms are not necessary for women under 50. “Women spend so much time taking care of others that they often need to be reminded to take the time to take care of themselves,” says Dee Mayberry, benefit co-chair. “That’s good advice for women of every age, even young women in their twenties, thirties, and forties.” Held at the Hyatt Regency Greenwich, the benefit featured guest speaker Geralyn Lucas, author of Why I Wore Lipstick to My Mastectomy. The fashion show was underwritten by Mitchells/Richards. Among the models were a dozen women diagnosed with breast cancer who were under the age of 40.
