MBCC Dance Event Kudos

The Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition celebrated the 20th anniversary of its premier fundraising event the Lesbians & Friends LGBTQ Dance Party For Prevention on October 21st. The event raised thousands of dollars for MBCC that also helps subsidize crucial funding for its sister organization, Silent Spring Institute. Attorney Susan Wilson who is the event’s founder was honored at the event for her incredible support throughout the years. Maura Healey, Massachusetts Attorney General proclaimed, “I want to congratulate everyone who has come together to support the Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition Lesbians & Friends LGBTQ Dance Party For Prevention on its 20th anniversary. I also want to extend special recognition to the founder of this incredible event, the one & only Susan Wilson, who is being celebrated tonight. Throughout her career, Susan has been a champion for our LGBTQ community & combating & preventing breast cancer. She is a leader, she is an inspiration & I am proud to call her my friend. For 20 years, this event has helped MBCC & its sister organization, Silent Spring Institute – advance prevention efforts, including critical science & research. And little by little, your efforts have brought us closer to the day when we can defeat this devastating disease once & for all. Thank you for all that you do, & here’s to many more years of dancing for the worthiest of causes.” Cheryl Osimo Executive Director of MBCC concluded, “Thank you to our many MBCC supporters who helped in a variety of ways. A special thank you to our sponsors, auction donors & everyone who came to dance the night away. Your generosity was impressive.” (photo of presenters Charlotte Robinson & Margo Simon Golden, MBCC, Board of Directors President)
