Coalition Begins Work On Ladies Night Out


The Manhasset Women’s Coalition Against Breast Cancer (MWCABC) held a kick-off reception on June 27 for its signature “Ladies’ Night Out” which raises substantial funds for breast cancer research and patient support services. This year, the event will be chaired by Linda Gurino and Paula Chiarucci and will take place on Oct. 24 at Leonard’s of Great Neck.

The coalition welcomes volunteer support in all sizes—from a little to extraordinary. Volunteers can give a few hours to aid in the impassioned fight for a cure and for patient support here in Manhasset.

“We welcome your assistance,” said MWCABC President Barbara Kelly Vessa. “Your contribution of time and caring, no matter how small, changes lives. Please consider joining our cause.”

Breast cancer affects so many women in the Manhasset area. Thankfully, many are survivors, but some are not. The Manhasset Women’s Coalition was Rcreated in the early 1990s to support those impacted by this dreaded disease. The Outreach Program provides numerous courses and discussions to provide support for victims of thie disease including courses such as The Business of Life After Cancer, Group Discussions for Breast Cancer Survivors, Ballet for Recuperation and so much more.
