Stories about The Tutu Project

The Tutu Team at the #GivePink Bloomingdale’s Dinner

October 7, 2013

It was an honor to be invited back to Bloomingdale’s #GivePink dinner.  It’s truly overwhelming to be surrounded by a group of people that are so dedicated to raising funds for breast cancer research.  The Bloomingdale’s #GivePink campaign has raised millions for cancer research over the years.

Our team was so excited that on the way home we were arguing about “who had the best night”.  Linda argued that talking to Dr. Norton absolutely made her night – after all, he has dedicated his life to the eradication of cancer.  Dr. Larry Norton is Medical Director of the Evelyn H. Lauder Breast Center at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.  He told us some great stories and admitted that after seeing Bob in that tutu, he might have dreams (or nightmares!) of getting caught in a tutu in public! We had a great laugh with him.

I don’t think we have to explain why Bob argued he had the best time… the beautiful Elizabeth Hurley complimented him on his photographs and posed with Bob for this amazing picture.  The talented cartoonist and breast cancer survivor, Marisa Acocella Marchetto, also shouted out to Bob on her way out… “can’t wait to hit the road with you guys!”  Bob won’t deny that he absolutely loves the attention of these amazing women!

And  me?  I keep it simple… I almost lost it when the very stylish David Enger was showing off The Tutu Project pin!

So really, there was no way any of us were going to win this argument.  Thank you a million times over again to Anne Keating, senior vice president of public relations and corporate philanthropy, who took an interest in our story and brought our project into this amazing organization.

    Since 30% of all breast cancer patients develop MBC — a fatal condition, then 30% of breast cancer research funds and 30% of breast cancer support activities should be dedicated to Metastatic Breast Cancer. At present, only 2% of breast cancer research funds go toward MBC research and support for the disease is rare.
