The third annual Peace, Love and a Cure® cocktail reception took place on June 11, 2009 at the Alpine, NJ home of Malaak Compton-Rock. Due to the continued generosity of our dedicated sponsors and the overwhelming support of our community, we were able once again to raise significant funds to support our mission.
The evenings honorees included TNBC Foundation® medical advisor Dr. George Sledge, community activist and philanthropist Laura Rodgers and TNBC Champion Award recipients Tim and Nancy Ochsenhirt.
The TNBC Foundation® was fortunate to have the additional support of three remarkable women who served as the evening’s Ambassadors for a Cure: WABC news anchor Lori Stokes, actress and activist Edie Falco, and journalist and television personality Rene Syler. Their association with our cause has helped us raise additional funds and awareness.
This special evening was the result of the hard work of many, most notably Event Co-Chairs Beth Eimbinder, Annie Hausmann, Cathy Pierorazio and Melissa Silver. Many individuals and local businesses contributed significantly to the evening’s success and we thank them for their continued support.
