Thanks to everyone who attended our 2nd Annual Pink Tie Gala on April 1, 2017
Each year, HERS Breast Cancer Foundation honors several People with Purpose — dedicated community leaders who contribute their expertise and resources to support breast cancer survivors. For the second year, our dedicated supporters gathered at Castlewood Country Club for an elegant Pink Tie Gala to celebrate these honorees. It was an even bigger success than last year’s event: more people attended, we raised more money, and we even had more fun! Castlewood is a charming venue. During cocktail hour, we enjoyed the grand views of Pleasanton’s lush hills and valleys from the terrace, admired everyone’s pink finery, and mingled with friends old and new. After finding our seats in the glowing ballroom, we enjoyed dinner and heard inspiring stories from clients and honorees. The live auction was lively, indeed. Everyone really got into the spirit of it—laughter and friendly competition filled the room with heartwarming energy. Finally, the DJ turned up the tunes and the dance floor came alive. It was truly a celebration of life and community. We hope you’ll join us next year!

2016 People with Purpose
People with Purpose, A Pink Tie Gala was an inspirational and successful event. It happened at Castlewood Country Club in Pleasanton on the evening of April 24, 2016. From the sweeping views of the valley to the rosy glow of the elegant ballroom, it was a night to remember. As we celebrated people with purpose we raised funds to support our programs that benefit breast cancer survivors.
We were inspired by clients, doctors, and generous donors who shared how their work and our organization have made a difference together.
Not only did we have fun drinking, dining and dancing with a beautiful crowd, we netted $50,000 in funds for our programs and services, far more than in previous years.
