About this Event

We are excited to have Dr. Jacqueline Walters, star of the popular Bravo TV reality series “Married to Medicine” as our keynote speaker this year. We expect her participation to attract a lot of media attention to our event, our sponsors, and our cause.

The LFC PINK TIE AFFAIR is a festive event that features dinner, dancing, silent and live auctions, live music and a tribute to physicians and breast cancer survivors. Our honorees include Donna Thompson, CEO of Access Community Health and Dr Gawri Ramadas, Oncologist at Community Health Systems. Attendees include over 300 medical professionals, business owners and community leaders. We hope we can count on your support to make our next event one of our best yet!

By attending this event (or making a donation), you’ll support the following:

• A mammogram subsidy program for indigent patients at a local hospital

• Local TNBC* research through the Community Cancer Research Foundation, and

• Beth’s Bags which provides comprehensive medical planners and journals to help newly diagnosed breast cancer patients at 3 local hospitals navigate their treatment plans.

*TNBC or Triple Negative Breast Cancer is an aggressive tumor that usually develops in younger women, has fewer treatment options and results in higher mortality rates. Although African-American women are slightly less likely to develop breast cancer than Caucasian women, they are 2X's more likely to be diagnosed with this form of breast cancer.
