Honoring the Promise was one of the most beautiful events I have attended in Washington. The gala/concert commemorating Ambassador Nancy Brinker’s promise to her sister to find a cure 30 years ago brought more than the stars out— it gave hope. Network news anchor and breast cancer survivor Robin Roberts was an excellent emcee and survivor stories from Cynthia Nixon, Olivia Newton-John and Australian singing sensation Delta Goodrem touched the heart. Former First Lady Laura Bush got a standing ovation as she was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Distinction Award. Tory Burch (with a magnificent necklace!) presented DC’s First Lady Michelle Fenty with the Community Distinction Award for her work with the Capital Breast Care Center. The night raised $1.9 Million dollars.. the most Komen has EVER raised in one evening.
