Newsbabes Fight Cancer With Verve, Class and Beauty
D.C.'s Newsbabes lit up the Collonade Room May 17 at the Fairmont Hotel, all to benefit the fight against cancer, to meet friends and colleagues and to make some guys smile. The third annual Newsbabes Bash for Breast Cancer is a prelude for the June 4 Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. The stunning and fun group of female journalists honored cancer survivors Jennifer Griffin of Fox News, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) and others. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius spoke about how cancer has touched her and America's families. Washington, D.C., first lady -- or first daughter -- Jonice Gray Tucker recalled losing her mother Loretta to cancer and "all those left behind" by her death and stressed the greater need by underprivileged or minority groups to fight cancer and raise awareness for early detection. When the Newsbabes lined up, WTOP's Man About Town Bob Madigan joined them as the honorary host and one lucky fellow.
