Partner Bernadette Tuthill is Vice-President of the North Fork Breast Health Coalition, while her mother is one of the nine at-large directors. Many of the volunteers in the organization are women who experienced breast cancer themselves. Bernadette and her mother are no exception.
On April 8, the coalition will host its annual “Pink Pearl Gala”, a celebration of “breast-cancer survivors, providers and caregivers.” The fundraising event was last held in 2019 due to the pandemic canceling it the past two years.
The gala will be held Friday, April 8, from 6 to 10 p.m. at East Wind Long Island in Wading River. Tickets cost $125 per person or $95 for breast cancer survivors. The raffle this year benefits the new Keri Lynn Stromski Stage IV Breast Cancer Research and Support Fund. Information on the gala is available at www.northforkbreasthealth.org or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
