Dear Michael Hupy,
On behalf of WBCS, Inc., thank you for your generous contribution. Hupy and Abraham will be recognized as the Presenting Sponsor of the 2016 Pinktacular Event Salute to Survivors Fashion Show and Luncheon on Thursday, October 6, at the Italian Community Center. This year marks the tenth year that Hupy and Abraham has served as Presenting Sponsor of our fashion show and luncheon. Your commitment and your partnership are both a welcome and important part of our success.
The Wisconsin Breast Cancer Showcase (WBCS) is the largest annual donor for adult cancer research to the MCW Cancer Center. The cumulative gift to date from our all-volunteer organization is $5.8 million. Our funding has enabled the researchers we support to leverage our awards into an additional $45 million in competitive external funding. Last summer, Hallgeir Rui, MD, PhD, joined the MCW Cancer Center as the inaugural WBCS Endowed Chair in Basic Breast Cancer Research at the Medical College of Wisconsin. Dr. Rui is an internationally renowned breast cancer researcher. He is considered a transformational leader for the MCW breast cancer program.
Thank you again for helping to make a difference for patients afflicted by breast cancer and prostate cancer. Together we are advancing research for those who can be helped today and those diagnosed with these diseases in the future.
With my best wishes,Jan Lennon
