Message from the 2019 Day of Caring Co-Chairpersons
Barbara Garcia and Lillian Villamizar

We cordially welcome you to the 18th annual Day of Caring for Breast Cancer Awareness Event. The theme for this year is Color Your World.

We are thrilled to be able to bring this magnificent and moving event to you on May 4, 2019. This event couldn’t occur without the energy and devotion of a gathering of exceptional volunteers, a large number of whom are breast cancer survivors.

The 18th Annual Day of Caring will have a variety of instructive, empowering, moving and fun encounters committed to living and cherishing life. Our keynote speaker is Carla Hill. After being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005, she’s now a two-time breast cancer survivor. She is an experienced Outreach Manager with a demonstrated history of working in the TV and performing arts industry. Volunteered  in the Leadership Team at the Susan G. Komen for the past 18 years.  Skilled in Nonprofit Organizations, Theatre, Public Speaking, Proposal Writing, and Performing Arts. Strong professional with a Master of Science focused in Counseling from Barry University. We invite back the vivacious Roxanne Vargas as our EMCEE.

Our capable Executive Board of Directors  and talented committee members share their skills,  aptitude, ability and time in making this program… from panels presenting to you the most recent data on breast malignancy treatment and keeping up a sound way of life, to cooking with one of Miami’s best gourmet specialists.

Our resource area, highlighting breast cancer support groups and organizations, are there to answer your inquiries. Our merchant area, where you can shop “pink things” in addition to delightfully created one-of-a-kind items, is not to be missed. Our volunteers have been gathering items for what will be a remarkable Silent Auction, and our chance drawing Grand Prize is a dazzling piece of jewelry graciously donated by Buchwald Jewelers.

The Double Tree by Hilton Miami Airport & Convention Center takes pride in serving us, a scrumptious lunch. What’s more, the Fashion Show is the highlight of the occasion, giving survivors the chance to demonstrate how delightful they are.

As in past years, the Day of Caring would not be here without our sponsors. We are much obliged to YOU for your generosity in helping us achieve our goal. We value every single one of you. Furthermore your commitment and eagerness is what motivates us to continue with this wonderful event.

Finally, we need to thank every one of you for coming and making this day so extremely exceptional. Your help is critical to us and we hope you COLOR YOUR WORLD!
