The party will feature delectable desserts, wine, silent auction and more. The event is free and is sponsored by Boomtown, presenting sponsor of all Race 2011 events, and Southern Wine and Spirits. Boomtown is the site for this year’s Race for the Cure, set for Oct. 2.
Komen Northern Nevada board president Lucy McGuire will present the New Balance Award, a recognition that goes annually to a breast cancer survivor who has served as an example in outreach and awareness.
The Race for the Cure funds local breast cancer education, screening and treatment, with 75 percent of net funds raised staying local, as well as research for the cures, with the remaining 25 percent of funds going toward Komen’s groundbreaking research awards programs.
