The October Breast Cancer Research Foundation NYC Symposium and Awards Luncheon showcases BCRF as an engine that propels promising research and an empowering resource for worldwide research efforts.

The event will be hosted by Hoda Kotb.

It is at this event that millions of dollars are announced as being directed toward grants to over 250 BCRF-funded investigators whose research projects are aimed at prevention and a cure for breast cancer. The Foundation’s loyal donors, corporate supporters, and fully funded researchers come together to celebrate the game-changing financial investment that BCRF continues to make in the breast cancer research arena. Each year, one BCRF grantee is honored with the Jill Rose Award for outstanding research excellence and the Sandra Taub Humanitarian Award is presented to a noble individual for their commitment and passion for the cause.

Expected guests include Rachel Bay Jones (“Dear Evan Hansen”), Kimiko Glenn (“Orange is the New Black”), Nastia Liukin, Joan Lunden, Emmy Myles (“Orange is the New Black”); Honorary Co-Chairs Leonard A. Lauder, William P. Lauder, Kinga Lampert, Marigay McKee and Rita Wilson; The Sandra Taub Humanitarian Award recipients Jeanne Sorensen Siegel and Herbert J.
