A Toast to Life!

This annual event is a warm, friendly evening which honors individuals and organizations active in the care of families affected by breast cancer. More than a dozen of the area’s best restaurants offer tasting plates featuring some of their top menu selections. To Life! will present awards to individuals who have gone above and beyond to serve those dealing with a breast cancer diagnosis. A grand silent auction and more provide a festive atmosphere for this very special fundraising event. 

Funding opportunities include corporate sponsorship, honorary committee participation and general ticket sales. All proceeds are used to fund To Life!’s extensive education programs, support services and wellness programs held throughout the year.
