Support the Girls, a local organization dedicated to promoting a healthier community – and especially breast cancer awareness, is hosting its first luncheon on October 14. The event will feature keynote speaker Michelle Stephenson of My Pink Vision, as well as inspirational stories from breast cancer survivors, and will offer ideas about other ways attendees can support breast cancer awareness. Proceeds from the event will benefit the CHRISTUS St. Catherine Hospital Breast Cancer Awareness Fund.

Support the Girls was created by a group of motivating Katy-area women who came together last year to address the growing healthcare needs of women in West Houston. The group consists of Katy community leaders, business professionals, civic liaisons and educators all focused on making the greater Katy area a healthier community.

“We are grateful and honored to be selected as the beneficiary of the event,” says Dana Mersiovsky, director of Development at CHRISTUS St. Catherine Hospital. “When it comes to breast cancer, education and early detection are essential to saving lives. It’s wonderful to have these amazing ladies helping us provide our community with the tools and resources to better understand – and fight – the disease.”

“There was no question among ‘us girls’ that CHRISTUS St. Catherine Hospital is the perfect beneficiary organization for our first luncheon,” says Amy Barker-Richards, Event Chair of Support the Girls. “The hospital has been a cornerstone of health and wellness for the Katy area, and we are thrilled to aid them in their mission.”

The Support the Girls luncheon will take place Friday, October 14 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the Weston Lakes Country Club in Fulshear, Texas. Individual tickets are $50 and tables of eight are available for $500. Sponsorship opportunities are also available. Attendees can register online by visiting www.CHRISTUSFoundation.org and clicking on “Events.” For more details or sponsorship information, contact Dana Mersiovsky at 281-599-6696 and e-mail dana.mersiovsky@christushealth.org.
