Details to follow!
To Life!’s annual spring fundraising event, “Honoring the Women in our Lives”, is a warm, friendly evening with friends. Generally held the first Tuesday evening in May at the Franklin Plaza Ballroom in Troy, NY. A showcase of area restaurants and a silent auction provide a festive backdrop for recognition of those who help women and families in our area who have been affected by breast cancer. A brief formal program includes presentation of awards and film highlights from To Life! events held throughout the year. Funding opportunities include corporate sponsorship, honorary committee participation and general ticket sales. All proceeds are used to fund To Life!’s extensive education programs, support services and wellness programs held throughout the year.
Highlights of our 2015 Gala include paying tribute to two members of our community who make a difference in the lives of individuals living with and affected by breast cancer.
