An estimated 75 young professional women attended the Ladies & Lattes breakfast event at Georgetown to network, fundraise and learn about breast cancer research and treatment.
Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center hosted the Ladies & Lattes event for more than 75 Washington-area women in recognition of breast cancer awareness month on Friday, Oct 11.
Ladies & Lattes, a networking group for women in the real estate community based in Washington, met at Georgetown University to promote networking, philanthropy, friendship and breast cancer awareness among women. Proceeds from the event will support breast cancer research at Georgetown Lombardi.
Among the special guests were two former winners of the Miss District of Columbia crown: Allyn Rose, Miss District of Columbia 2012 and breast cancer advocate who went public with her decision to undergo a double prophylactic mastectomy, and Ashley Boalch, Miss District of Columbia 2011, who served as emcee for the morning.
The only invited male, Robert Clarke, PhD, DSc, Georgetown University Medical Center’s dean for research and professor of oncology, informed the largely pink-clad crowd about breast cancer research at Georgetown Lombardi.
