Breast Cancer Survivor Hosts Feb. 6 Benefit for Wilmot Research Programs

January 28, 2010

Breast cancer survivor Paula Bokman will host a fund-raiser for research at the James P. Wilmot Cancer Center to help find a cure Saturday, Feb. 6, at Burgundy Basin Inn.

“Keeping the Hope Alive,” is an evening of wine tasting, grazing, music and auctions. The third annual event begins at 6 p.m.

“If we are going to find a cure for breast cancer, we have to continue to fund research, which is why we’re holding this event,” said Bokman, a 10-year survivor and Victor resident. She is director of nursing at Highlands Living Center.

Katrina Irwin of Channel 8 WROC will be the emcee. The silent auction will feature a number of items, including restaurant gift certificates, hotel, spa and gourmet packages and jewelry.  

Tickets are $35 and available by contacting Paula Bokman at (585) 389-0988 ext. 270 or 455-7894.

The Wilmot Cancer Center is home to the Comprehensive Breast Care Center, which serves women and men with any breast problems – from screening to diagnosis, treatment and survival. For more information about the center, call (585) 275-2778.
