Houston, TX (PRWEB) September 06, 2012
One of the world’s most talked about couples – Giuliana and Bill Rancic – will walk the “pink carpet” on October 11, 2012 at Américas Woodlands during the In The Pink of Health Luncheon underwriter preview party benefiting the Breast & Bone Center at Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Hospital. The reality show stars and darlings of the social media will be on hand to meet and greet underwriters, media and VIPs in attendance at the invitation only party hosted by celebrity restaurateur Michael Cordúa.
The Rancic’s have made headlines by being very public about Giuliana’s fight with breast cancer. The two have courageously braved the battle together, sharing the journey to wellness on their reality TV show, Giuliana & Bill that airs weekly on the Style Network. Giuliana is also known for her own red carpet appearances as co-host of E!NEWS, where she is always the first to greet celebrities and pique our interest with gossip that generates enough tweets to be combustible! Bill, who was the season one winner of the Celebrity Apprentice, is also a prolific entrepreneur and speaks with regularity all over the country.
The underwriters’ preview party will take place the evening before the signature event, the 12th Annual In the Pink of Health Luncheon, which is set for Friday, October 12, 2012. Giuliana and Bill will be the guest speakers at the event that has raised $2.1 million since its inception.
Chef and long-time supporter of In the Pink of Health and other breast cancer related charities, Michael Cordúa will host the preview event. Cordúa, who is a three times James Beard Foundation nominee and the only chef in Texas inducted into the Food & Wine magazine Hall of Fame, will be serving his signature Latin food.
Since its inception in 2001, In the Pink of Health has generated more than $2.1 million to support the Breast & Bone Center at Memorial Hermann the Woodlands Hospital. 100% of the funds raised stay in Montgomery County. Throughout the years, proceeds have enabled access to free mammograms and care for underserved women; educational resources for newly diagnosed patients; and, development of a support program to work with children of those affected by breast cancer. Most recently, In the Pink of Health funds purchased breast tomosynthesis, a new 3-D mammogram technology that improves physicians’ ability to detect smaller tumors at the earliest stages of breast cancer, potentially saving the lives of hundreds of women.
