Thanks to every one of you who supported or joined us for our 7th Annual Action Speaks Louder Than Pink – Food for Thought! It was a successful and powerful evening filled with community, activism and amazing food.

We’re thrilled to share that Food for Thought raised over $68,000! The money raised from this event will help us meet the current challenges and support our work for women living with and at risk of breast cancer. If you weren’t able to attend and would like to help us get to $70,000, you can donate online.

We streamed a portion of the program about our current work by going live on Facebook for the first time. If you weren’t able to join us, or you want to share with your network, you can watch our executive director, Karuna Jaggar, speak here.

Our heartfelt thanks to our dedicated and talented chefs for donating the delicious meal: Eric Tucker from Millennium, Kevin Clancy from Bon Appetit, Charlie Ayers from Calafia and Bernard Hong from Café Madeleine. A huge thank you to Sascha Weiss for his essential role as our head chef. And deepest gratitude to Lauren Schiller, our MC and guide for the evening.

Many thanks to our generous sponsors: Karen Klein & Ben Golvin, Peggy Huston, Neyhart, Anderson, Flynn and Grosboll, Mechanics Bank, Lee Ann Slinkard & Maria Morris, Chuck & Julie Palley, Ann & Larry Wheat, Tracy Weitz & Marj Plumb, Judy Bloom and Anonymous.

Thank you for all that you do to fuel and fund our work.
