This year the HERS Breast Cancer Foundation held its fifth annual People with Purpose Awards Luncheon at the Sheraton San Jose, in Milpitas, honoring people in our community and beyond, whose contributions have supported breast cancer survivors, as well as our efforts to serve them. The funds raised at this event will go toward our programs, including We Support, YOU Survive, which serves low income women.
Our Master of Ceremonies was KTVU Channel 2 Anchor Heather Holmes, who has graciously participated in a number of previous HBCF events.
