MBCC 25th Party For Prevention (AUDIO)

By Charlotte Robinson, October 11, 2022

This week I talked with Cheryl Osimo, Executive Director of the Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition about the 25th anniversary of their premier fundraising event the Lesbians & Friends LGBTQ Dance Party For Prevention that takes place in person at Club Café in Boston on October 22nd from 6P to 9:30P & virtually via Zoom. This year they’re honoring the event’s founder Attorney Susan Wilson. Osimo stated, "Susan is a true humanitarian, scholar, visionary & friend to MBCC & all of those who have been touched by breast cancer. I don’t know of anyone who excels beyond Susan in the spirit of service & leadership.” Funds raised from the Party for Prevention help support MBCC’s education programs designed to provide our communities with vital health information on ways to reduce exposure to toxic chemicals in the products they use & in the environments in which they live, learn & work. 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 Lesbians & Friends LGBTQ Dance Party For Prevention. Tickets for the in-person Club Café 21 years or older event are $40 in advance & $45 at the door. Student tickets are $20 in advance & $25 at the door for 21 years or older with a student ID. Tickets for the virtual event are $20 via Zoom. DJ Andrea will be spinning & there will also be a dance lesson from OUT to Dance’s founder & director Liz Nania. I talked to Cheryl about what she hopes to accomplish with her work at MBCC & her spin on our LGBTQ issues. LISTEN
