On Saturday, October 2, 2010, Living Beyond Breast Cancer (LBBC) will host our annual fundraising gala, The Butterfly Ball. By being a part of it, you can help us raise more money than ever to support women and families affected by breast cancer. Last year, this event raised more than $500,000, enabling us to continue programs like our toll-free Survivors’ Helpline, large-scale conferences and free teleconferences. Our top-quality programs and publications reach thousands of women affected by breast cancer every year.

This year’s Butterfly Ball, co-chaired by Liz Barrett, Heidi & Jim Boudreau and Audrey Claire Taichman, will honor Lisa Dautrich Black, JoAnn Cottman, Leslie Taichman and Sue Weldon. Hear their stories.

Chico’s FAS, Inc., which operates well-known apparel brands White House | Black Market, Chico’s and Soma Intimates, will be presented with the 2010 Corporate Leadership Award. Hear their story.

This year’s event at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel in Center City will treat nearly 600 of Philadelphia's business and social leaders to spectacular views, exquisite food and dancing. A limited auction full of one-of-a-kind and priceless items and a drawing featuring dozens of fabulous prizes will contribute to the evening’s success. This year’s auction will include an African Safari, a week’s stay at a private villa in St. Barts and a pair of diamond drop earrings valued at over $20,000. Many other getaways, dinners, sports items, home accessories and lots of shopping opportunities will be available!
