Organized by the Women’s Task Force of Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center and sponsored by the Kelly Cares Foundation, proceeds raised from the event will allow underserved women, ages 40–49, to receive free mammogram or cervical cancer screenings. Since March 2003, more than 4,000 free mammograms have been provided or scheduled as a result of the luncheon and style show.

The event celebrates survivorship, provides education regarding the importance of early detection, and raises funds to ensure that all women seeking to be proactive and responsible for their health are able to receive life-saving cancer screenings. Tricia Sloma of WNDU, and Dr. Michael Method, medical oncologist and medical advisor to the Task Force will co-emcee the event. In addition, all models in the style show are cancer survivors—each demonstrating a true testament to strength and perseverance.

The Luncheon and Style Show is open to anyone, but seating is limited. Individual reservations are $35, and patron tables or other sponsorship opportunities are still available. Donations are also being accepted from members of the community that are not able to attend the luncheon. By donating $50 or more, individuals can become a Secret Sisters Society member and help underserved women gain access to mammogram or cervical cancer screenings.
