Why: Raise awareness for Ovarian Cancer

Did you know that ovarian cancer is the deadliest gynecologic cancer because there is neither a screening test nor a cure? It's true and the result is about 22,000 women in this country will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2009 and more than 15,000 women will die from the disease. Early recognition of ovarian cancer symptoms is still the best way to save women's lives because when detected and treated early, the five year survival rate is greater than 90%.

Melanie Finley is the founder of the foundation and is an ovarian cancer survivor and wants to share her experiences and knowledge about this deadly disease with the hope of saving other women’s lives.

Proceeds will benefit The Melanie Finley Ovarian Cancer Foundation

Cost: $35.00 per person

Includes: Open bar from 6:30pm-8:30pm and appetizers
