One in nine New Zealand women is affected by breast cancer. It’s a statistic that places this country as the seventh highest in the world for the disease, and one that is driving Breast Cancer Cure in its dedicated pursuit of a solution.
As New Zealand’s only not-for-profit focusing solely on funding scientific research for a breast cancer cure, BCC is driving the search for answers like no one else, but it can’t do so alone.
Karen Walker, a longtime ambassador for the organisation, recognises this and as such, has joined forces with BCC to host an exclusive cocktail party next Thursday for the cause. Set to take place in a private home on Paritai Drive, attendees will have the chance to hear one of New Zealand’s most renowned figures in fashion talk about life, business and taking her brand to the world stage in a uniquely intimate setting.
Champagne and delicious cocktails from Cardrona Distillery will be on hand and there will also be a selection of lucky dips to purchase. With all the makings of an enjoyable night and with 100 percent of the proceeds going towards BCC’s research, this is one party you won’t want to pass up.
The fact that one woman is diagnosed with breast cancer every three hours is a staggering statistic — one that will only change via a concerted collective effort. If you’ve been wondering how you can help fight the good fight, this is your chance, and we can’t think of a better way to support the cause.
Cocktails with Karen Walker and Breast Cancer Cure will take place on Thursday 28th February from 5:30pm and tickets are $179 per person — available here.
