Guests in attendance were served hors d’oeuvres provided by La Griglia while they mingled and shared their stories of cancer, early detection, intervention, and awareness. Jeff Shell of Neil Hamell Modeling Agency came with a gang of models who dropped their pants and set a festive atmosphere. Meryl Cohen, former Vice President of Education and Training at Planned Parenthood and current #CBTB Sexual Education and Awareness Representative on hand with her husband, Judge Murry Cohen, to answer any questions about sexuality and awareness.

Crain and Jared Anthony for their ongoing support of this campaign that brings light to cancers too often left in the dark.Aside from the food, fun, and festivities many of the people in attendance left with a new knowledge of early detection and ways to live more aware of the dangers of cancers below the belt.
