A Sea of Pink
A record number of 750 guests attended the Cancer Link “A Sea of Pink” ocean themed luncheon & auction to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center on Thursday, October 10, 2013.

Guests were welcomed by dancers and different tasting stations and specialty bars during the silent auction. The luncheon’s highlight was a fashion extravaganza featuring the Mayda Cisneros Couture Collection.
