I’m not one to encourage the over indulgency of alcoholic beverages, however, when a little imbibing can help a whole lot of people, I’m all for it, especially when it revolves around a cause that is near and dear to my heart – the fight against women’s cancers. Pampered Passions Fine Lingerie has helped breast cancer patients over the years through pre and post mastectomy fittings, Wacoal’s annual Fi(gh)t for the Cure and the In the Pink Fashion Show to name a few. Today, however, we celebrate the AMC Cancer Fund’s Third Annual Cocktails for the Cure.
This Thursday, March 1, 2012, women from all over the Denver metro area will be gathering for one of the best girls’ night out ever, so make sure you’re one of them. You can sip on a signature cocktail prepared just for you by one of the several guest bartenders from local establishments. These guys and gals are tops in their field and will be creating luscious libations for you to sample and enjoy. Plus, there will be myriad heavy hors d’oeuves for noshing.
Once you have your cocktail and hors d’oeuves, head to the silent auction area where you will find dozens of fabulous items on which to bid. Then enjoy the entertainment, and circle back to the bar for a new concoction. Meander around the room, meet some new friends and visit with some familiar faces. But don’t forget to go back to the silent auction and double check your bids. You never know who has been bidding on your favorite must have.
Funds raised at this spectacular and spirited event will benefit research and treatment programs for women’s cancers, such as the Young Women’s Breast Cancer Translational Program, the Program of Excellence in Cancers of the Ovary in Colorado, and research being conducted on cervical cancer. All of these programs are located at our very own University of Colorado Cancer Center, the only National Cancer Institute (NCI) designated comprehensive cancer center in the Rocky Mountain Region, and one of only forty in the country.
