Shades of Pink, a Pink-Tie Gala, is coming to West Hartford on Saturday, Oct. 21, 2017, at 7 p.m. at the West Hartford Town Hall Conference Center to support The Michael Christopher Moreau Family Fund for breast cancer research, and the Adolescent and Young Adult Survivorship Clinic (AYA Program).

This year’s event is a special tribute to the life of Michael Moreau. It is in his memory we continue our work to raise money for breast cancer research until we no longer hear the words: there is no cure.

And because Michael through his battle with cancer showed us how much there is to live for, we also honor, my daughter, Rachel Spellman, a pediatric cancer survivor, and in celebration of her life, raise money for the AYA Program also at Tufts Medical Center, to provide survivorship care to individuals with a history of cancer.

Both programs are near and dear to my heart and are in the hands of two very special people. Dr. John Erban, Michael’s oncologist, directs the funding for The Michael Christopher Moreau Family Fund and Dr. Susan Parsons, Rachel’s oncologist for 27 years, leads the AYA programs.

Michael Moreau was a long time restaurateur in the Hartford area, father and husband, and a man who battled breast cancer. In other words, he was a very important person to many people, and by establishing the Michael Christopher Moreau Family Fund at Tufts Medical Center we hope to honor his fight, support others, and further the science to one day soon eradicate breast cancer.

Dr. John Erban will be presenting speaker and entertainment is provided by the Savage Brother Band.

Attire: Please wear something pink to show your support!

Tickets are $100 and available through www.shadesofpink.brownpapertickets.com

Dinner, Cocktails and Auction are included. For more information please contact Marci Moreau at [email protected]
