The Pink Agenda held their annual gala virtually this past Thursday night to raise money, and awareness for breast cancer research and grant wishes to people living with breast cancer and undergoing treatment. The event was hosted by breast cancer survivor and television personality Giuliana Rancic and her husband, Bill Rancic.
The gala was informative and powerful, with many breast cancer survivors taking part in the virtual event. Being that the event was virtual, it allowed many people from coast to coast to unite for a good cause.
The gala opened with introductions from prominent celebrities and voices. It featured special guest appearances by Melissa Joan Hart, Ryan Seacrest, Taylor Lautner, and many others, including a musical performance by Katie Gavin of MUNA. Some speakers bravely shared their own personal journey with breast cancer while also raising awareness of the disease.
What makes The Pink Agenda’s Gala stand out every year is its generosity in granting wishes to women undergoing breast cancer treatment. The Pink Agenda has been partnered with Giuliana’s initiative, FAB-U-WISH, since 2014. FAB-U-Wish and TPA have been working together to grant wishes to over 325 women so far, shared Giuliana.
This year, wishes were granted to two women, each of whom shared their story from diagnosis through treatment and into recovery. One recipient was granted a future shopping spree, while the other was surprised with home renovations, both on behalf of Kendra Scott.
The night was a huge success with more, than 550 people attendees present and collectively raising a total of $275,000.
