"The Taste of Media" breast cancer vaccine FUNdraiser...

Wow what an awesome event.
We had 300+ people show up for our “Taste of Media“ event to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer vaccine research, headed by Dr. Brian Czerniecki of the University of Pennsylvania hospital.
He updated us on his progress of his research. It was very promising and we will have an update on in the near future, (after he has published his findings)...
The event started at 7pm, Dr. Czerniecki spoke at 8:30, then we had a live auction and a silent auction and then the party kept going till the last guest left at 2:30 am.
It was so much fun, so informative and full of hope.
We raised $70 000.00+ last night for the cause and monies are still coming in. If you want to donate to the cause you can do that online at and click on the donate button.
I was so fortunate to have a wonderful committee of 25 people who were amazing.
Tanith Belbin and Ben Agosto 2006 Olympic siver medalists served as the honorary chairpersons, with their coaches Olympic Champions Natalia Linichuk and Gennardiy Kaparosov by their side.
Pictures to follow…
