Les Girls, an evening of song and celebration benefitting the National Breast Cancer Coalition Fund (NBCC), is set for its 14th annual cabaret on Monday, October 6, 2014 at the Avalon Hollywood in Los Angeles, CA.
Hosted by Allison Janney, this year’s cabaret promises to be a sexy, witty and fun evening for a great cause! Honoring Dr. Judith Reichman, the star-studded event will feature a cocktail reception, silent auction, and a cabaret with incredible talent including Jason Alexander, Eric McCormack, Jason Ritter, Troian Bellisario, Steven Weber, Bellamy Young, Ana Ortiz, Shanola Hampton, Seamus Dever, Jon Huertas, Loretta Devine, Keith David, Gary Dourdan, Alexis Carra, Jonathan Sadowski, Nicole Parker and The Company Men, among many others! All proceeds will support NBCC’s Breast Cancer Deadline 2020®, a strategic plan of action with a January 1, 2020 deadline for knowing how to end the disease.
Since 1991, NBCC has been at the vanguard of the breast cancer movement, elevating breast cancer to an issue of national significance. In March, Science Magazine called NBCC President Fran Visco “the most influential nonscientist ever in the field of breast cancer research.” The same article reported that NBCC brought about a federal research program that “has awarded nearly $3 billion in grants, making it the second largest funder of breast cancer research in the United States.” NBCC challenges scientists and advocates to address breast cancer in new ways, generating unprecedented collaborations and accomplishments that have elevated the disease to an issue of national significance.
