As a kickoff to the 2009 Komen Louisville Race for the Cure and October – Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Buckhead Mountain Grill and Rocky’s Sub Pub are honored to host the Breast Cancer Survivor Dinner on the waterfront in Jeffersonville. The dinner will be held on Tuesday, October 6.
Buckhead’s and Rocky’s for the past 10 years have worked with the Kentucky Cancer Program (KCP), part of the James Graham Brown Cancer Center, in putting on this wonderful dinner for over 800 local Breast Cancer Survivors. The dinner is free to all breast cancer survivors in the Louisville Metro/Southern Indiana area.
“We are very excited because it is our 10th year hosting this dinner for so many amazing women of the community,” Kelly Leonardo, Director of Marketing with Buckhead Management said. “This dinner is a celebration of life and of survival, but it is also a chance for us to celebrate the lives of those who lost their battle with Breast Cancer.”
Buckhead’s and Rocky’s will donate the services of the restaurants' food, tent and staff. Each of their employees looks forward to volunteering their time for such a great cause. This year’s dinner will have a country theme and will be MC’ed by Radio Personality Mel Fisher from WAMZ and entertainment will be from an up and coming Country musician, Candy Coburn, who has a hit song dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness entitled “Pink Warrior”.
"This is such a wonderful opportunity for the breast cancer survivors to come together for this event that Buckhead's and Rocky’s so graciously hosts,” Pam Jennings of the Kentucky Cancer Program said. “For some women, they say this is as exciting to them as Christmas! They look forward to it each year and love to feel special by this event."
