Spring Benefit Breakfast
with Secretary Madeleine Albright
On March 26, 2014, BCC supporters gathered at Sharon Heights Golf & Country Club in Menlo Park for our 6th Annual Spring Benefit. The morning was made truly special by Secretary Albright’s powerful insights and fascinating stories about the evolving role of women in the world today.
Reyes Cabrera, a Gabriella Patser Program client, shared her breast cancer story in Spanish, translated by Donaji Olivares, Patser Program Coordinator. “Thanks to each and every one of you,” she said. “You have no idea how much support Breast Cancer Connections and the Gabriella Patser Program provide for uninsured women who need them. I was very fortunate to find them.”
Every dollar raised at the event was matched by the Morgan Family Foundation’s Challenge Grant, doubling the impact of each donation and bringing our grand total to $221,000. Our donors ensure that BCC remains one of the Bay Area’s leading cancer organizations. More importantly, they are providing free programs for people in our community touched by breast or ovarian cancer, including access to breast screenings for those who can not afford it.
We thank our event sponsors, all the attendees who bought tickets and made donations, and the volunteers who helped make the event a huge success.
