On Jan. 26, Share Our Suzy (SOS) will host the fifth annual It’s Black and White benefit. The event will be held at Harborside East overlooking the Cooper River and will feature live musical entertainment by Chairmen of the Board, amazing food by FORK Catering, incredible artwork, fun adult beverages and more. Guests will also have a chance to learn more about the needs of patients battling breast cancer and opportunities to directly impact the lives of women battling the disease in the Charleston area.
“This event has it all: dancing, fun drinks, delicious food, gorgeous venue – and the chance to make a huge difference in the lives of women in our community struggling with breast cancer.” Michaela Mueller, co-chair of the event. “Our goal is to raise more than $30,000 which will provide direct assistance to breast cancer patients with transportation, groceries, childcare, wigs, utility bills – all of the things that insurance doesn’t cover for breast cancer patients.”
Additionally, the event includes a silent auction featuring the works of Betty Anglin Smith, Shannon Smith, Jennifer Smith Rogers, Chris Groves, Mark Horton and many more. Guests will also have the opportunity to purchase gas cards and other services for breast cancer patients. “We want to keep the focus on the needs of the patients. These women and their families struggle through every step of this battle. It is our hope that by providing assistance with these everyday needs we will allow them to focus on fighting their disease and not on the financial burden they encounter.” Emily Walton, co-chair of the event.
Sponsors for the event include: McDonald’s of Georgetown, Roper St. Francis, Tervis, Fork&Knife, O’Brion’s Pub, O’Neill Plastic Surgery and many more. Sponsorship opportunities are still available for the event.
Share Our Suzy is a volunteer-driven nonprofit and was originally started as an effort to help local photographer Suzy McGrane with her breast cancer battle. While in remission Suzy took over SOS to help others with cancer. Sadly, Suzy lost her battle with cancer in 2005. The SOS Foundation picks up where Suzy left off to aid those with bridging the financial gap from diagnosis to remission.
