Our annual luncheon celebrates breast cancer survivors and thrivers  (those living with metastatic breast cancer) who inspire communities all across Northeastern New York!

Sunday, November 1, 2020

11am – 1pm | Albany Marriott on Wolf Road

 To ensure the safety of our community and those fighting breast cancer, we have made modifications to our 2020 event. In-person tickets are limited to 200 and socially distanced seating arrangements are in place. Virtual tickets are also available this year!

Advanced registration is required for all guests and tickets must be purchased by Monday, October 26 at 5pm.
Tickets are not available the day of the event.

Please consider a donation of a Pink Ribbon Seat, which helps cover the cost of a breast cancer survivor or thriver to attend at a reduced cost of $10, or as a complementary guest of Susan G. Komen Upstate New York.


Our celebration includes a sit-down lunch, fashion show, raffle and silent auction, awards presentation, and recognition of all survivors and thrivers in attendance.

Awards are presented for the following categories:

  • Faith  – recognizes a survivor who inspires, encourages, and empowers women affected by breast cancer
  • Hope – recognizes a breast care professional who improves the lives of breast cancer patients
  • Love – recognizes a volunteer who works tirelessly to advance Komen’s mission in the community
  • Courage – recognizes a thriver who is boldly and bravely batting metastatic breast cancer every day

To nominate a member of the breast cancer community who has inspired you, please click here. Nominations will be accepted through August 1, 2020.

Funds raised from our luncheon support accelerated research while also ensuring that our neighbors facing breast cancer today get the help, support and treatments they need to live longer, better lives.



Sponsorships are still available –  please contact Jessica Wiley at jwiley@komenupstateny.org.
