Power of a Promise Luncheon in Seattle Raises $83,000 in Breast Cancer Fight
Komen Puget Sound’s 14th annual Power of a Promise luncheon on Oct. 28 raised more than $83,000 to further Komen Puget Sound’s promise to end breast cancer. KING 5’s Amanda Grace emceed the event, attended by more than 250 community leaders at the Sheraton Seattle hotel.
Keynote speakers were Jan Slawson, a two-time breast cancer survivor who chaired Seattle’s first Race for the Cure event; and Alexis Coffer, also a two-time breast cancer survivor whose first diagnosis came at age 23. Komen Puget Sound Executive Director David Richart led a recognition of the many survivors present, as well as a moment of remembrance for those lost to breast cancer.
Richart affirmed Komen’s resolve to advocate for access to mammograms and other breast cancer screening services. Through its community grants program, Komen Puget Sound helps thousands of underserved local women receive screenings, diagnostics and breast health education.
