LAUDERDALE LAKES, Fla., Feb. 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- On April 8th and 9th in Plantation, Florida, the Woman2Woman Breast Cancer Foundation will host its 2nd annual celebrity Golf Tournament and Pink Diamond Ball. Actor Hill Harper will host the Pink Diamond Ball and silent auction on April 9th.
Founded in 2007, Woman2Woman founders Jacqueline R. Gray and Kevin Gray formed the organization to ensure, through information, early detection and support, that no woman faces breast cancer alone. Recently named one of Ebony magazine's Power 100 (January, 2011) as emerging leaders in health, Jacqueline and Kevin have provided assistance to thousands of individuals whose lives are affected by breast cancer.
The Woman2Woman annual events are major sources of funding allowing them to operate and provide services to those who need assistance. In October, Woman2Woman hosted a private evening for more than 100 guests with acclaimed Chef G. Garvin serving a special culinary experience. The evening titled, "A Night Under The Stars," was a celebration of the foundation's mission to improve the quality of life for breast cancer patients, survivors, their families and individuals who are in need of breast health education, information, financial assistance and resources.
This year's host, Hill Harper, is an award winning actor, bestselling author and philanthropist. He stars on the TV drama CSI:NY and is the author of three New York Times bestsellers. His collective writing and acting work has been recognized with six NAACP Image Awards.
Jacqueline R. Gray states, "We are thrilled to have Hill Harper host our second annual Pink Diamond Ball. Hill is a caring individual who understands the importance of community support." She adds, "Hill works tirelessly to help organizations like ours thrive so we can in turn help others."
Sponsors of the 2011 Pink Diamond Ball are: The Fort Lauderdale Westin Beach Hotel and Spa, Phil Smith Auto, Best Buy, Signet Diagnostics, Alfs Golf, West Broward Rehabilitation Center.
The Woman2Woman Breast Cancer Foundation supports women by promoting regular examinations, early detection and aggressive treatment from those suffering from breast cancer. The Foundation firmly believes no woman should face the consequences of breast cancer as a result of the inability to pay for treatment and medicines.
