Susan G. Komen LA held a luncheon honoring the sponsors for the 2017 Race For The Cure on February 16, 2017 at the 1010 Wilshire scenic rooftop. The sponsors’ contributions help raise breast cancer awareness, fund research to find cures and provide women with access to vital breast health services. Special guests Brian O’Neal and the Bus Boys spoke about personal experiences with breast cancer and later performed their “The Girls Are Back In Town” a rendition of their hit song, “The Boys Are Back In Town”.
Susan G. Komen dedicates 3/4 of net proceeds from fundraising to the community. This includes services for diagnosis and treatment. The remaining 1/4 of the net funds raised go to a grant program for breast cancer research, Komen’s National Research Program, which is highly regarded for its innovation and responsiveness. The Race For The Cure will be held at Dodger Stadium on March 11th. To learn more go to http://www.komenlacounty.org.
