In 2004 alone, 186,772 women and 1,815 men were diagnosed with breast cancer, and 40,954 women and 362 men died from breast cancer.* After skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in women. Breast cancer is the number one cause of cancer death in Hispanic women.
In other words, a lot of people are impacted by breast cancer. Not just the women (and men) who have the disease, but those around them. Their children. Spouses. Parents. Friends. You get the idea.
With that in mind, if you would like to help raise money for the Susan G Komen for the Cure Foundation, consider attending the Tickle Me Pink fundraiser this Friday, May 2 at Saint in Boston. I mean, really, how could you say no after those sobering statistics?
For just a $20 donation, you get to hang out at Saint (oo la la), drink gin cocktails courtesy of their sponsor "Right Gin," and enjoy complimentary hors d'oeuvres.
You'll also have the chance to bid in the silent auction, which includes 4th row tickets to the Patriots, Red Sox and Bruins tickets, a Spa Day followed by lunch at Stephanie’s, a 4 hour private cocktail cruise in Newport, RI, and many other delightful and enticing items.
Doors open at 8 PM, and there's sure to be a line by 10 PM, so come early for the fun. Wear your snazziest pink duds to show your support for the fight against breast cancer. Men, this is your chance to wear pink with no fear. Come on, break out your fushia cowboy hat!
