On October 8th, the agents and staff of Landfall Realty sponsored a Table at the Pink Ribbon Breakfast at the Wrightsville Beach Holiday Inn Resort. The New Hanover Regional Medical Center Foundation added the Breakfast event to their luncheon and dinner program three years ago and we are very proud to have been able to participate in this special fund raiser all three years. This wonderful Pink Ribbon group honors those who have survived as well as those who have lost their battle with breast cancer.
Since the inception of the Pink Ribbon events, the NHRMC Foundation has raised over $1,000,000 to help pay for mammograms for uninsured women and to provide comfort bags for those newly diagnosed patients. Many Landfall property owners serve on the volunteer committees that organize and plan this special event. I also saw many of our neighbors in attendance in the room-capacity crowd. This year’s speaker, Connie Hill, is a local survivor whose children attended preschool with mine, so her story was especially touching to me. As I leave this function every year, I marvel at the courage and strength of these women and I find myself ever more grateful for all that is good in my life—family, friends, and most of all—my health.
As chair for this year’s NHRMC Hospital Foundation Gala, our desire is to raise money for the Women and Children’s Center. It is always encouraging to see the fabulous turnout at our local fund raising events and to realize how generous the entire Landfall community has been, and what a wonderful city of Wilmington, NC, we live in, full of devoted men and women of great charity.
