(PRWEB) June 7, 2005
To celebrate breast cancer month, a professional model decided to give back the best way she can -- auction a date with herself to charity. Sun Karma, a professional model out of Virginia, decided to give one lucky winner a special dinner and a movie evening with her. She will be giving 60% of the profits to the breast cancer foundation in support of breast cancer month. This auction was originally listed on EBAY..but has been taken private for several reasons. Feel free to contact us for further details.
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is dedicated to preventing breast cancer and finding a cure in our lifetime by funding clinical and genetic research worldwide. A minimum of 85 cents of each dollar donated to the Foundation goes directly to breast cancer research and awareness programs.
In 2005, the American Cancer Society estimates that there will be approximately 211,240 new cases of invasive breast cancer in women in the United States, and 1,690 in men. An estimated 40,410 women and 460 men will die from the disease. According to the National Cancer Institute, breast cancer accounts for about 15 percent of all cancer-related deaths in women in the nation.
The BCRF, a not-for-profit 501 (c) (3) organization, was established in September 1993 by Evelyn H. Lauder, following a successful $18 million fundraising effort to build a comprehensive breast cancer center at Memorial Sloan-Kettering in New York City. To date, the Foundation has raised $100 million to support outstanding breast cancer research nationwide.
For 2004--2005, BCRF has awarded grants of over $18 million to support 97 researchers across the U.S. and worldwide.
"My Aunts died from breast cancer and I feel I must give back so I decided to auction a date with myself to support the cause" replies Sun Karma when asked about the auction. "I am one woman that has been affected by this disease..and I want to help find a cure in my lifetime. It's not about ME...it's about what each of us can do to help."
As you can see the industry is not all about money and Sun Karma proves that it is not about the money it is about the determination it takes to help a great cause and prove there is a great feeling to doing something you feel if right.
