Cris Collinsworth ProScan Fund Celebrate Annual Pink Ribbon Luncheon
Duke Energy Convention Center will become the Pink Ribbon Comedy Club on Wednesday, October 18th as the Cris Collinsworth ProScan Fund celebrates their Annual Pink Ribbon Luncheon.
Top comedian Tom Papa from New York City will provide laughter for all. Papa is the host of award- winning podcast Come to Papa and a regular guest on Conan and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and has toured with Jerry Seinfeld. With more than 20 years as a stand-up comedian, he has found success in film, television and radio as well as on the live stage. Papa was seen alongside Michael Douglass and Matt Damon in HBO film, Behind the Candelabra which won 11 Emmys. He was also seen in the hit Comedy Central series, Inside Amy Schumer.
Event emcee, Cris Collinsworth will recognize the Stephanie Spielman Fund as this year’s Power of Pink Award recipient. Each year, the Pink Ribbon Luncheon recognizes the outstanding efforts of an organization that has used their first or secondhand experience with cancer to give back to the community. The Stephanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer research has raised millions of dollars towards the fight against breast cancer. Maddie Spielman, Stephanie Spielman’s daughter will accept the award. The Pink Ribbon Luncheon is also very excited to recognize Honorary Chairs Bob and Suzi Brant who have been instrumental in the growth of the Cris Collinsworth ProScan Fund and longtime supporters of the Pink Ribbon Luncheon.
The Pink Ribbon Luncheon supports CCPF’s Pink Ribbon Programs, which include free breast health services including mammograms for uninsured and low income patients, Pink Ribbon gift bags for women newly diagnosed with breast cancer, transportation to and from appointments, breast health and survivorship education, and breast imaging services at the Pink Ribbon Centers. The Pink Ribbon is also covering the cost of Breast MRI for patients who have dense breasts and qualify.
The event will take place at the Duke Energy Convention Center on Wednesday, October 18th. Doors open at 10:00 am and the event will conclude at 2:30 pm. Limited tickets available. For more information, visit www.ccpf.org or call 1-866- 557-PINK.
