According to 2023 Celebrating Women Luncheon Chair Ola Fojtasek,
“The 24th annual Celebrating Women luncheon will be Monday, October 30, at the Hilton Anatole Hotel. Since its inception, this unique gathering has raised millions of dollars through luncheon table sales, underwriting, sponsorships and donations. And, very importantly, it has increased awareness of breast cancer diagnosis, treatment and research.
“Over the last 23 years, Celebrating Women has raised more than $38 million for Baylor Scott and White Dallas Foundation to help care for the more than 20,000 women diagnosed with breast cancer each year in Texas.
“This commitment from generous donors in our community has continued to advance the fight against breast cancer and allowed Baylor Scott and White Health to:
- “Expand the High-Risk Breast Screening Program, which helps identify women who were at high-risk for developing this disease but unaware
- “Provide mammograms and other breast cancer services for patients unable to afford this care
- “Support patient navigators, who play a crucial role in the patient’s journey by identifying and resolving barriers, answering questions and offering support
- “Create a new Hope Lodge patient navigator to serve as a resource for the more than 2,500 patients and caregivers who stay at Hope Lodge each year while traveling to receive cancer treatments at Baylor Scott & White
“We will reveal this year’s featured guest in the coming weeks and hope you will visit our website to learn more about how you can support the luncheon. Underwriting Chair Amanda Dillard Shufeldt along with our dedicated and loyal committee, look forward to having your support. https://dallasfoundation.bswhealth.com/CelebratingWomen/donate
