On Saturday, October 3, 2009, LBBC’s Butterfly Ball took place at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel. Gala donations provide funding for our education and support programs for women affected by breast cancer.
LBBC honored five women affected by breast cancer, including one of our own! Our education director, Elyse S. Caplan, MA, was presented with the Founder’s Award for her outstanding professional contributions to educating and supporting women affected by breast cancer. Hear Elyse’s story.
We also honored Wendy Jonas, Phyllis Markoff, Emily Scattergood and Aundreia Alexander “for their courage, compassion and contribution to women and families affected by breast cancer.” Hear their stories.
The evening also included a live and silent auction, dinner, entertainment and more. To view photos from the evening or to place an order, visit the online album. The password is Butterfly Ball.
Special thanks to our 2009 gala committee, led by co-chairs Howard and Emily Cutler, Byron and Paulina Hewett and Jacki and Eric Blumenfeld, for planning this wonderful event!
