Luncheon & Style Show Provides for Free Mammograms
The ninth annual Secret Sisters Society Luncheon & Style Show, an event that raises funds to assist women in receiving mammograms, will take place Wednesday, September 15, at the University of Notre Dame’s Joyce Athletic and Convocation Center Field House at Noon. The Secret Sisters Society Luncheon & Style Show is organized by the SJRMC Women’s Task Force (WTF), which is comprised completely of volunteers who are all cancer survivors.
Tricia Sloma of WNDU and Dr. Michael Method, Medical Oncologist and medical advisor to the WTF will co-emcee the event.
Funds raised from the Secret Sisters Society Luncheon & Style Show allow underserved women, age 40-49, to receive a free screening mammogram.
Since March 2003, nearly 3,500 free mammograms have been provided or scheduled as a result of the Secret Sisters Society Luncheon & 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 a mammogram. All models in the event are cancer survivors themselves with uplifting stories.
Anyone can become a Secret Sister by making a tax-deductible membership donation of $50 or more.
The event is open to anyone, but seating is limited. Individual reservations are $35, and patron tables and other sponsorship opportunities are also still available.
