The 18th annual Pink Ribbon Luncheon was held at the Wilmington Convention Center last Thursday, and Landfall Realty was proud to sponsor a table to support the cause. Close to 600 people attended the luncheon including Landfall realtors, Becky Spivey, Amy Neathery, Martie Davy, and Alison Bernhart.
The fundraiser for the Pink Ribbon Project at New Hanover Regional Medical Center raises money so women without health insurance are able to have mammograms, and it provides comfort bags for men and women currently going through cancer treatment. Since the start of the charity over 7,000 mammograms have been provided.
Local news anchor for WECT, Francis Weller, started the event with a speech, followed by President and CEO of the hospital, Jack Barto, who spoke about the Pink Ribbon Project. For entertainment there was a silent auction and The St. Stephen AME Gospel Choir performed. The featured guest was author and breast cancer survivor Patti Callahan Henry who candidly spoke about her battle with cancer.
