For the third consecutive year, the Cure Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. (CBCF) is teaming up with Bloomingdale’s in the Mall at Short Hills in Short Hills, NJ for an evening to benefit breast cancer research efforts.
On Thursday, September 15th, the non-profit 501(c) 3 organization and the nationally recognized department store will host a special reception beginning at 6 p.m. at the in-store Forty Carrots restaurant. The evening will consist of a fashion presentation and special panel discussion with breast cancer experts, including Drs. Elizabeth Comen, Sheeva Talebian, and Jaime Knopman from New York City’s Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center; and Dr. Serena Chen of St. Barnabas in Livingston, N.J.
An ideal event to lead into October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the evening blends wellness and style with an exclusive shopping event and educational session. Bloomingdale’s will donate 10% of all sales from the evening to CBCF, which solely supports breast cancer research efforts under the direction of Dr. Larry Norton, the Deputy Physician-in-Chief for Breast Cancer Programs and the Medical Director of the Evelyn H. Lauder Breast Center at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.
Attendees will also be able to shop the Walters Faith fine jewelry pop-up shop, which will have exclusive pricing available only during the event. To register, please visit http://curebreastcancerfoundation.org. A $25 donation to CBCF is suggested.
“Attendance and excitement at our previous fashion shows and shopping events has been fantastic and we’re incredibly grateful to once again join with Bloomingdale’s for this very special evening,” says Andrew Abramson, Treasurer and Co-Founder of CBCF. “Their continued participation shows a strong dedication to the communities they serve and commitment to support charitable endeavors. We’re looking forward to a wonderful evening focused on today’s popular fashion trends and styles.”
Dr. Larry Norton is leading the fight against breast cancer with trailblazing work, and has discovered that cancer cell mobility and the interactions between the cancer cell and its microscopic environment are the key pathways to understanding and eventually eradicating breast cancer.
CBCF is directly responsible for and is actively supporting Dr. Norton’s work through fundraising for two important research projects – breast cancer and its microenvironment and bone metabolism and breast cancer. All this work is coordinated by Dr. Norton and a dedicated team of physicians and scientists at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York and New Jersey and their national and international collaborators. It is based on the discovery that abnormal cell division is only one of the dangerous characteristic of cancer.
