More than 400 women gathered at the Four Seasons on April 1 for the Ninth Annual Women & Wine, benefitting the Nina Hyde Center for Breast Cancer Research at Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center. The women-only event raised a record $259,000. Claudine Isaacs, M.D., and Shawna Willey, M.D., presented updates on the latest breakthroughs in breast cancer research and treatment, followed by a question-and-answer session. The evening included a cocktail hour with silent auction and dinner, after which emcee Greta Kreuz of WJLA-TV presented the 2014 Spirit of Life Award to Karen M. Gifuni as a person who exemplifies character and leadership in promoting breast cancer research and awareness.
