ToLife! - Pink Ball

Held at the Hall of Springs in Saratoga

To Life!’s annual fall fundraising event, The Pink Ball, is the inspiration of dancer and breast cancer survivor, Leslie Valencia. Since 2005, To Life! has hosted this special celebration to benefit women and families in our community affected by breast cancer with special recognition for outstanding service. This elegant black-tie event features a dance extravaganza courtesy of the Arthur Murray Dance Studio and includes hors d’oeuvres, dinner, dancing, and a fabulous auction. Funding opportunities include corporate sponsorship, honorary committee participation and ticket sales. All proceeds are used to fund To Life!’s extensive education programs, support services and wellness programs held throughout the year.

Congratulations to Angelo Calbone and Saratoga Hospital, the 2014 Community Service Award Honorees.
