Susan Bass Levin, President and CEO of The Cooper Foundation, announced today that the Tenth Annual Pink Roses Teal Magnolias Brunch raised a record-breaking $1 million for breast and gynecologic cancer research and clinical programs at MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper.
The tenth annual fundraiser was held on Sunday, Oct. 27, 2019 at the Crowne Plaza in Cherry Hill, N.J. With more than 850 people in attendance, Pink Roses Teal Magnolias is the largest breast and gynecologic cancer fundraiser in the Delaware Valley.
“Pink Roses Teal Magnolias is a healing movement fueled by the power of hope and the strength of sisterhood that supports fellow survivors and advocates for research and care for breast and gynecologic cancer,” said Susan Bass Levin, President and CEO of The Cooper Foundation and an ovarian cancer survivor. “To raise $1 million is a testament to the passion of the Pink and Teal community and their dedication to finding a cure for women’s cancer once and for all.”
Since the first brunch in 2010, fundraising for Pink Roses Teal Magnolias has totaled $6.5 million. Funds have been used to support research, the Patient In Need Fund, new technology, the Survivorship Program, and the Dr. Diane Barton Complementary Medicine program which utilizes therapies designed to lessen the pain, stress and anxiety associated with cancer while supporting mainstream medical care.
