I’m Tracy Weitz, longtime women’s health activist, rabble-rouser, researcher, Director of a Nebraska-based foundation, and the proud Chair of Breast Cancer Action’s Board of Directors.
In my various roles, I go to a lot of fundraising events. And I can say with my hand on my heart that our Action Speaks Louder Than Pink – Food for Thought is an event that I truly look forward to each year.
Why join me, you ask? Well, for starters, it’s not your traditional rubber chicken dinner. At this event you’ll experience a delicious and beautifully prepared four-course dinner that comes with a thought-provoking program and table conversation with kick-ass activists from the BCAction community.
I’m honored that the BCAction staff thought I was charismatic and charming enough to emcee the evening’s program, but the food is the real star at this event. Some of the most celebrated Bay Area chefs collaborate to prepare this dinner using sustainable and organic produce and ingredients (vegetarian and vegan options for all courses are available upon request).
This year we have returning chefs Chef Eric Tucker from Millennium Restaurant, Chefs Sascha Weiss and Susanne Stampke from The Plant Café Organic, and Chefs Jonathan Sutton and Tony Ferrari from Hillside Supper Club. (Stay tuned for the others!) All of them are generously donating their time, food and culinary talents to support BCAction.
You can count on us to talk about the real issues when it comes to breast cancer and I promise you’ll never see a pink ribbon the same way again.
I’m really looking forward to seeing you on October 21st.
