Think Pink guests will explore the silent auction treasures while they partake in splendid libations, exotic food and a spectacular Granita Ice bar, all by renowned chef Jennifer Naylor. Sponsors will join the exclusive VIP Leopard Lounge after-party.
This gala event raises funds for the BCRC, a nonprofit organization founded in 1997 that provides educational programs and serves the special support needs of women facing breast cancer diagnosis and treatment, and women dealing with breast health challenges.
The center is located in a charming Victorian cottage at 525 W. Junipero St., just down the street from Cottage Hospital. In addition to a free lending library providing resource information, the center hosts community lectures and support groups, and offers several integrative therapies and wellness programs, all free of charge to its clients. The BCRC is funded solely through its fundraising events and devoted donor base.
In addition to providing support services to patients, the center recently started a new program to encourage women to receive mammograms called “I screen, you screen, we all screen.” The program provides free mammogram screening to qualified Santa Barbara County residents.
