Thanks for joining us April 21, 2018 for our ninth annual People with Purpose event.
Each year, HERS Breast Cancer Foundation honors several People with Purpose — dedicated community leaders and organizations who contribute their expertise and resources to support breast cancer survivors. For the third year, our dedicated supporters gathered at Castlewood Country Club for an elegant Pink Tie Gala to celebrate these honorees.
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. While enjoying a three-course dinner in the glowing ballroom, we heard inspiring stories from clients and honorees. The live auction was truly entertaining, and everyone got into the spirit — lots of laughter and friendly competition. And finally, it was time to dance in celebration of life and community. We hope you’ll join us next year!
We’re tremendously grateful to all who supported our event. Thanks to the generosity of so many, we’re very close to reaching our goal of raising $100,000 – funds that will support our three Charitable Programs that serve low income, uninsured, and under-insured breast cancer survivors.
We have just $4,000 to raise to meet our fundraising goal. If you were unable to join us or wish to give again, please donate today! Gifts in any amount are welcome and will help provide:
- a specialty bra: $50
- a post-surgical garment: $60
- a lymphedema garment: $80
- a wig: $150
- a prosthesis: $200
Donating online is easy. Or, stop by our Fremont Program Store or call (510) 790-1911 to donate.
