National Breast Center October Brunch Coming to the Ritz Carlton Pentagon City

Non Profit Hosts Event for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Pentagon City, VA: The National Breast Center, will host a fundraiser during the month of October to recognize Breast Cancer Awareness month. The event will be held on Sunday, October 26, 2014 at the Ritz Carlton in Pentagon City, VA beginning with a VIP reception at 11 am and followed by brunch at 12:30 pm.

The event is designed to bring the community together to honor Breast Cancer Awareness month, to increase knowledge about screening and treatment options, and to launch this newly formed organization and it’s programs. The brunch will also honor cancer survivors and medical professionals who advocate for breast cancer patients, and will outline plans the Center has to help women in the community.

“There are tools that use cutting-edge technology to improve the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer that are available in our community. Unfortunately they are utilized in less than 20% of women that would benefit from them…We know how to fix these problems, and every day, women in our clinic benefit from our unique approach. We want to touch more lives in more ways and improve the availability and quality of breast cancer care,” said Dr. David C. Weintritt, MD FACS, board certified breast surgeon and founder of the National Breast Center.

Funds raised at the event will help the foundation with their mission to improve the lives of women by removing barriers that prevent proper screening, diagnosis, and education about treatments available. They are committed to setting the standard in improving outcomes through education, personalized risk assessment, access to care, and support during treatments for anyone diagnosed with breast cancer.

Sponsorships are currently available in a range of price points and benefit levels. More details can be found at
