Breast Cancer Resource Center to Bring Brazil to the American Riviera for Gala

The Breast Cancer Resource Center of Santa Barbara (BCRC) will hold its 17th annual fall gala fundraiser, “BCRC Presents: Copacabana” Friday, Sept. 25, 2015.

The event will be held from 6–10:30 p.m. at the spectacular oceanfront Coral Casino club in Montecito. Guests will revel in the excitement of a colorful, Brazilian themed event benefiting all the wonderful support services offered at the BCRC.

This amazing evening will include dinner and dancing and fine wine provided by Alma Rosa Winery in Buellton.

VIP Sponsors will enjoy an exclusive reception beforehand from 5–6 p.m.

“We are pleased to announce that The Bank of Santa Barbara is the presenting sponsor for the ​Copacabana event,” said BCRC Executive Director Silvana Kelly. “Maurice Moreno, owner of Moreno Jewelers and a native of Rio de Janeiro, is our event chair along with Nora Scheinberg as honorary chair."

Come and experience a riveting cultural experience, which will be reminiscent of parties The ​Copacabana Club in Rio. Festivities will include live music by Teka, a renowned Bossa Nova singer, and fabulous Samba dances by Mariano Silva of the Brazilian Cultural Arts Center. 

This gala event raises funds for the BCRC, a local 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 1997. 

The BCRC 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 BCRC is located at 55 Hitchcock Way, in Santa Barbara. In addition to a free lending library providing resource information, the center hosts community lectures, peer counseling 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.

Tickets to the gala are $225 per person. Sponsorship opportunities are still available.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
