It was an evening worth remembering. A charity auction of a painting of the Westminister House signed by British Prime Minister Tony Blair fetched 13,000 pounds during the function and the money will be used for a nobel cause - to set up India's first ever fully equipped Mobile Breast Cancer Detection Unit. The Mobile Unit will offer free services, will be launched by the end of this year and will help in an early detection and awareness of Breast Cancer. This Unit is part of Roko cancer appeal campaign.
