Message from the 2018 Day of Caring Co-Chairpersons Doreen Ruggiero, JD and Vivien Knight
Welcome to the 17th Annual Day of Caring for Breast Cancer Awareness Event! The theme for this year’s event isPINK POWER.
We are excited to be able to bring together this wonderful and moving event to you on April 14, 2018. This event could not happen without the passion and dedication of a group of outstanding volunteers, many of whom are breast cancer survivors.
The 17th Day of Caring will have an array of educational, empowering, inspirational and fun experiences dedicated to living, loving and laughing. In keeping with our PINK POWER theme, our keynote speaker is Novlene Williams-Mills, an Olympic athelete, who was diagnosed with breast cancer while competing. We welcome back Roxanne Vargas as our EMCEE.
Our talented Executive Board of Directors and gifted committee members share their expertise, talent and time in creating this program…from panels bringing you the latest information on breast cancer treatment and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, to cooking with one of Miami’s top chefs.
The Day of Caring event includes resources from a variety of breast cancer support groups and organizations to answer your questions and provide information. Our vendor area, where you can shop for “pink items” as well as beautifully crafted one-of-a-kind items, is not to be missed. Our volunteers have been collecting items for what is going to be an outstanding silent auction, and our raffle item is a lovely piece of exquisite jewelry donated by Buchwalds Jewelers.
The InterContinental Hotel takes extra pride in serving us, not only a delicious lunch…but a beautiful one as well. In addition, the Fashion Show is the crowning glory of the event, giving survivors the opportunity to show how beautiful they are, both inside and out!
As in past years, the Day of Caring would not be here without our sponsors. THANK YOU for your generosity in support of our mission. We appreciate each and every one of you. And you should be proud to know that it is your dedication and enthusiasm that inspires us to make it all happen again, so enjoy this day and see you next year! Sincerely, Co-chairs
Doreen Ruggiero, JD and Vivien Knight
