See you tomorrow night at the Komen Tidewater

 3rd Annual Pink-o de Mayo Fundraising Gala!

2016 Pink-O 

Pink-o de Mayo is a night of merriment and musiccocktails and canapés, fun and philanthropy. All proceeds from this fabulous evening will benefit Komen Tidewater as we work to enable women in our service area to detect and survive breast cancer.

Throughout the evening guests will enjoy drinks, hors d’oeuvres, a chance to win a diamond at the Sip, Sparkle and Shine Bar–where each glass purchased gives you the chance to win a diamond or other gemstones as well as silent and live auctions, filled with wonderful, enticing items that will open up hearts and wallets making this evening a night of memories.

Dance to Latin rhythms, and enjoy the performance of Melinda and Scott Mielock from Just Dance On studios. If you are unsure of the steps or have never tried the Salsa they will help you learn the basics.

The music will be provided by DJ Mangu from Selecta AM 1050 WVXX.

African American Young WomanWhy Are Some Women Dying of Breast Cancer

at Higher Rates?

African American women are less likely to be diagnosed with breast cancer, but up to 40 percent more likely to die from it than Caucasian women. There are many reasons for these disparities in outcomes for women of color. Some are genetic; some socio-economic; some cultural. Most involve access to quality medical care and education about resources available to these groups.
