Fifth Annual Pink Pearl Gala
On Friday, April 5, the North Fork Breast Health Coalition will again celebrate breast-cancer survivors, providers and caregivers at the Fifth Annual Pink Pearl Gala of the non-profit organization. The cocktail reception, seated dinner and dancing to music selected by DJ Phil of Make Some Noise DJs will be held from 6-10 PM at East Wind, 5720 Route 25A, Wading River.
This year’s gala will be a tribute to Lucia’s Angels, which will be represented by President and Co-Founder Stacy Quarty as well as Co-Founder Susie Barry Roden. The foundation is committed to helping women and families on Eastern Long Island with late-stage women’s cancers including breast cancer, ovarian cancer, cervical cancer and uterine cancer. Lucia’s Angels was created in loving memory of Lucia Terzi Bagan.
Seating for the inspiring, wear-pink event will be available for $125 per person and $95 for breast-cancer survivors through the NFBHC website, www.northforkbreasthealth.orgorwww.nycharities.org.

Shari Einhorn, an Emmy-Award-winning reporter for News 12 Long Island, will emcee the Fifth Annual Pink Pearl Gala.She often covers health-related stories for the regional television station. She was also master of ceremonies for the previous four NFBHC galas, which were very successful with hundreds of people attending each of them.
The North Fork Breast Health Coalition is currently led by President Susan Ruffini. The all-volunteer, nonprofit organization supports local breast-cancer patients with programs such as Helping Hand grants. Funds raised by the gala will also allow the group to continue to provide free services such as gentle yoga, reflexology, meditation class and massage therapy to breast-cancer patients and survivors.
