2009: Play for P.I.N.K. Reaches New Heights
It is with great pride to be able to announce that an unsurpassed number of participants and an expansion of clubs and events to more than 190 in over twenty states, has led to an extraordinary amount of funds raised in 2009. PFP is currently funding twelve projects.
Such phenomenal growth would not be possible without our dedicated board, chairwomen, participants, and of course our generous sponsors. Bloomberg, our title sponsor, underwrites all of the expenses for Play for P.I.N.K. (PFP), enabling 100% of the funds raised to be donated to BCRF. The Estée Lauder Companies and Wilson Sporting Goods support us through their contributions of gifts and merchandise.
On October 29th, PFP's board proudly presented a $3,000,000 check to Evelyn Lauder and The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, bringing its total contribution since inception to $18.75 million! Representatives from Bloomberg and The Estée Lauder Companies joined the PFP board for this celebratory event. Honored guests included Drs. Robert Benezra and Michael Wigler, two of the PFP-funded researchers; Dr. Larry Norton, Chairman of the BCRF Executive Board of Scientific Directors; and Dr. Clifford Hudis, Chairman of the BCRF Scientific Advisory Committee.
We thank everyone for their tremendous support and look forward to another successful year in 2010!
