JOY BEHAR

20th Annual Celebration of Life Luncheon

Tuesday, July 15th, 2014

Vail Marriott 11:30am-2:00pm

Joy Behar, a leading woman on both stage and screen, and a member of the

cast of “The View” for 16 years – for which she won an Emmy – will be the

featured speaker at the Vail Breast Cancer Awareness Group’s (VBCAG) 20th

Anniversary Celebration of Life luncheon. The annual event will be held on

Tuesday, July 15, at the Vail Marriott Mountain Resort and Spa.

Armed with a master’s degree in English education, Behar originally began a

career in teaching before pursuing comedy professionally. Whether performing

standup comedy or interviewing politicians and artists, she is a leading woman

on both stage and screen. She hosted “The Joy Behar Show” on HLN and “Say

Anything” on Current TV.

Behar has received numerous honors, including TV Guide’s “Personality of the

Year,” and the Gracie Allen Tribute Award from the Foundation of American

Women in Radio and Television.

“Once again, the entire Vail community will welcome a tremendous advocate

for women’s well-being,” said Kristin Kenney Williams, president of the VBCAG.

“Joy Behar is the perfect guest speaker to enlighten us, make us laugh, make

us cry, make us laugh louder, and inspire us, as we celebrate together so many

incredible accomplishments in raising awareness around the importance of early

detection.”

For Patti Weinstein and Brenda Himelfarb, who co-founded the VBCAG, its 20th

anniversary is time for reflection. “Patti and I are so grateful to the VBCAG board

members who, for the past 20 years, have given so much to making our dream of

supporting breast cancer awareness in Eagle County come true. I still remember

our first meeting in my apartment and the enthusiasm that filled the room.”

”None of this would have been possible without the generous support of our

incredible, unselfish community,” adds Weinstein. “From the beginning, it has

been the generosity of the community – both individuals and businesses – that

has allowed us to help hundreds of women who have been diagnosed with

breast cancer and, as well, to support the Shaw Regional Cancer Center in

advancing its treatment of breast cancer patients.”

The Vail Breast Cancer Awareness Group began in 1993. In addition to

Himelfarb, Weinstein and Williams, board members include Lynda Gustafson,

Tracy Gillette, Mary McDougall, Brielle Stockton, Kathy Spangler, Pollyanna

Forster, Joyce Bradley and Nicole Denton. Since its inception, the VBCAG has

raised over $1 million.

Another Successful Luncheon!

VBCAG'13-Web_008Our 19th annual Celebration of Life was indeed a celebration when our guest speaker, Geralyn Lucas, author of “Why I Wore Lipstick: To My Mastectomy,” had the audience, of over 400, dancing and laughing as she shared her story. And, yes, there were a few tears as she touched everyone with her courage, humor and inspirational candor.

 

Having been diagnosed with breast cancer at age 27, Lucas thought it was important to share her story with others to help dispel the myth that breast cancer discriminates by age. She spoke of her soul searching in an effort to discover her “inner cleavage” after losing what she considered to be a key female-defining characteristic and to feel sexy and whole again. She spoke of many people, who she has met over the years, who she considers to be angels. Angels who have added so much to her life and who continue to bring her laughter and strength.

 

When Lucas ended her speech, the audience, who contributed to our raising almost $40,000 – gave her a standing “O” that seemed to go on and on.

 

“She was warm, she was informative, – a truly amazing speaker and woman,” said Patti Weinstein, co-founder.

 

Our 20th anniversary luncheon will be held on Tuesday, July 15, 2014 at the Vail Marriott and Spa. It promises to be a spectacular event!
