MBCC Honors Lily Tomlin (AUDIO)

By Charlotte Robinson, October 25, 2020

The Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition presented Lily Tomlin, long-time environmental activist, comedian & actress with the MBCC Environmental Activist Award at the 23rd Lesbians & Friends LGBTQ Dance Party For Prevention October 24th via Zoom. Cheryl Osimo, Executive Director of MBCC presented the award stating, “We are constantly inspired by trailblazers like Ms. Tomlin who have fearlessly & relentlessly paved the way of putting the greater good of our planet & families first. On behalf of Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition’s (MBCC) Board of Directors & staff, we are honored & proud to present Lily Tomlin with the MBCC Environmental Activist Award. Lily Tomlin will go down in history as one of the greatest activists, if not the greatest activist, of all time in helping us make the world a better place for all who live on this earth.” The Lesbians & Friends LGBTQ Dance Party For Prevention is MBCC’s premier fundraising event. The online event also included laughs with guest comedian Karen Williams & dance lessons with OUT to Dance's Liz Nania who gave virtual cha-cha, rhumba, salsa & merengue lessons. DJ Shelly Cullen provided the tunes along with DJ Ann Rogers. MBCC is the only breast cancer non-profit working closely with a research & sister organization Silent Spring Institute to investigate preventable environmental causes of the disease. This work is funded through annual fundraising events like the upcoming virtual Lesbians & Friends LGBTQ Dance Party For Prevention. I talked to Cheryl about the Lesbians & Friends LGBTQ Dance Party For Prevention event, what she hopes to accomplish with her work at MBCC & her spin on our LGBTQ issues. LISTEN
