January 7, 2013By Caroline Stewart
Living Beyond Breast Cancer raised nearly $560,000 at its 18th annual Butterfly Ball, held Nov. 10 at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel. The black-tie gala was attended by 650 guests and was chaired by Beth and Steven Haas, Jeanne and Sam Pace, Liz and Stephen Raynes, and Nicole and James Robinson.
The evening honored Dr. Debra Somers Copit, a radiologist at Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia, with the Founders Award, as well as breast cancer survivors Stephanie Lawrence, Tyesha Love, and Jackie Roth with the Going Beyond Award.
The gala featured dinner, a live auction, dancing to the band Gotham, and a raffle for a 12-month lease for a 2012 Mercedes-Benz and a Harry Winston watch that raised $10,500. Proceeds from the evening will help fund educational programs and support services for women diagnosed with breast cancer.
