NBC’s Today co-host, journalist, personality, author and breast cancer survivor Hoda Kotb will join the Young Professionals Committee (YPC) of Susan G. Komen Greater New York City for the sixth annual Painting Wall Street Pink event on Thursday, February 6th, 2014. Painting Wall Street Pink will begin with a reception on the trading floor of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and will be followed by an after-party at Cipriani Wall Street.
The wonderful event introduces the greater New York City Gen X and Y community to the life-saving work of Susan G. Komen, Komen Greater NYC and the YPC. There will be cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, a light supper, silent auction and dancing to DJ Jason Fioto.
Komen Greater NYC CEO, Linda McNeil Tantawi stated, “The Young Professionals have done a fantastic job of educating their peers on the importance of early detection and breast cancer awareness, as well as the life-saving work that Komen Greater NYC does to provide access to at-risk women in the metropolitan area and to find the cures for breast cancer. Painting Wall Street Pink is an excellent entry point for young philanthropists to understand the impact of their donations and fundraising on breast cancer and for members of our greater New York communities.”
Komen Greater NYC’s YPC consists of rising young executives and professionals whose goal is to engage a new generation in the culture of philanthropy, inspiring them to help Komen for the Cure and Komen Greater NYC achieve their vision of a world without breast cancer. The YPC is dedicated to finding new ways to raise awareness and monies to fund innovative grassroots breast health programs that provide services to underserved residents in New York City, Long Island, Westchester and Rockland Countries. They have already raised nearly $100,000 for this event and hope to raise much more. The funds will help underwrite Komen Greater NYC’s breast health screening, treatment and support programs.
