The 8th Annual Beauty Ball, presented by the Beauty Foundation for Cancer Care, was attended by more than 300 guests,including prominent business owners, local celebrities and members of our community. Dr. David Dupree presented his long-time friend and colleague, Dr. Gregory Greco, with the 2014 Diamond Award of Philanthropy. Former member of KISS and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Peter Criss, presented the 2014 Man of Courage Award to Mr. Dave Cantin. And celebrity chef, Dave Burke, presented his long-time friend and business associate, Ramona Lerner, with the Woman of Courage Award. The Board of Trustees is deeply grateful for all the support we received from our sponsors, guests and volunteer committee. We are so thankful to everyone who attended, purchased an auction item or made a pledge to help support the mission of the Foundation.Three courageous people also shared their experiences with cancer and the Beauty Foundation with the audience; Tracy Goff, mother of seven and currently fighting breast cancer, Sheila Annunziata, a brain cancer survivor, and Asia Gonzales,who at just 22 years old is battling a rare form of sarcoma. We can’t thank these individuals enough for sharing their stories.

The evening also helped to raise additional pledges for our “100 Grants for 100 Families” program, bringing the current total to nearly $45Kfor this program alone.
