On Saturday, October 21, The Cancer Couch Foundation hosted the 2nd Annual Cancer Beat at The Warehouse in Fairfield. The Cancer Couch was founded by Dr. Rebecca Timlin-Scalera after she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015. Since then, Rebecca has dedicated her life to finding a cure for Stage IV breast cancer.
The 2nd Annual Cancer Beat brought guests from all over Fairfield County to indulge in a VIP cocktail reception with open bar, hors d’oeuvres, and a buffet under a French theme, followed by a concert performance by Howard Jones. Rebecca gave a heartfelt speech about her journey with breast cancer and the passion and determination she has for finding a cure.
Guests were also invited to take part in the silent auction and various raffles in order to raise money. Cruise and World Travel raffled off a package, which raised over $10,000 to benefit the Cancer Couch Foundation. The package included two nights at the Esprit St. Germain in Paris along with $2,000 for airfare and travel expenses. The lucky winner will enjoy a luxury weekend accompanied by exclusive perks and amenities.
