2020 Virtual Lunch for the Cure

Join us for a virtual program focused on the local mission of Komen Puget Sound, new and cutting-edge breast cancer treatments as well as inspirational and entertaining messages from featured speakers. All while raising funds to keep local breast cancer patients and survivors supported as well as fueling critical breast cancer research.
Special Guests & Speakers
Brooke Fox, MOViN 92.5
Co-host of MOViN 92.5’s “Brooke & Jeffrey In The Morning,” Brooke is a longtime Komen volunteer, advocate and fundraiser.
Michelle Millman, KIRO 7 News
Michelle Millman anchors the Emmy award-winning KIRO 7 Morning and Noon News. Every weekday, Michelle and the News Team deliver the most timely and relevant stories impacting our community to help viewers better prepare for the day ahead.
Raised in Renton, WA, Michelle attended the University of Washington and was an intern at KIRO 7 during her senior year. After graduation, she secured her first job in television at KLEW-TV in Lewiston, ID. She rejoined KIRO 7 as a reporter in 1995 and after working for years in the field and as a fill-in anchor she became a full-time News Anchor in 2012.
Michelle faced one of the biggest challenges of her life in 2009 when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She was very open about her experience, blogging about it – from the surgeries to the five months of chemo. Michelle now gives much of her time to local organizations that advocate for cancer patients and raise awareness and money to help find a cure. She has supported the work of Komen Puget Sound as the Grace Notes Gala emcee as well as the MORE THAN PINK Walk® master of ceremonies, a role she returns to this year. She is also the featured speaker at this year’s Lunch for the Cure.
Frank Senecal, MD
Frank Senecal, MD, noted medical oncologist, will be sharing his experience working alongside Komen on breakthrough breast cancer research and the focus of bringing research out of the lab and to the bedside and how that elevates the care and therapies for patients.
Dr. Senecal has served as St. Joseph’s Director of Oncology, Medical Director of Hospice of Tacoma, Chairman of the Department of Medicine and Chief of Staff at St. Francis Hospital, Fellow of American College of Physicians. Active in cancer treatment research, he has published scientific articles in that field.

Virtual Memory Wall
The 2020 Lunch for the Cure is proud to remember and celebrate the beautiful faces, the stories, the triumphs and the tragedies. We will honor these individuals through photos in this VIRTUAL Memory Wall. We invite you to contribute, to celebrate and remember your loved one.
Why should I purchase a Virtual Event Ticket?
Table and ticket sales raise over $20,000 for Komen Puget Sound. These funds help cover costs for the event and while going virtual means less expenses it doesn’t mean no expenses. Funds raised from event tickets will cover those costs and anything above that goes to our mission.
How does a virtual table work?
It works a lot like our MORE THAN PINK Walk® fundraising pages. Each virtual table is essentially a team so when you invite someone to join your table they register and have the option to help you fundraise by inviting their friends and family to join as well or to make a donation. This means the reach of the Virtual event is much greater and we encourage you and all of your guests to share the event with friends and family.
Do Table Captains need to register?
Yes, because it gives you access to your virtual table fundraising page. This page is how you’ll share the event with friends and family.
Do Participants need to register?
While we encourage everyone to register because it gives them access to their own fundraising page, participants can choose to make a donation to an individual or table instead. The link to the public event program will be sent to fundraises and donors.
Can I make a donation by check?
Yes! Checks, made out to Komen Puget Sound, are always welcome. Table captains can collect checks from their table guests and mail them using the worksheet available here. Our office is currently closed, all our mail is being forwarded to our Database Administrator, Heidi McAfee, so you can mail checks to Komen Puget Sound, 112 Fifth Ave N, Seattle, WA 98109 and they will be forwarded to Heidi.
Having trouble registering or updating your fundraising page?
Email Heidi McAfee at firstname.lastname@example.org for help.
