We Will Survive Cancer!
We went to the World Cup edition of We Will Survive Cancer Happy Hour at McCormick & Schmick's. It featured special guest Sharon Marroquin, the breast cancer survivor and choreographer of The Materiality of Impermanence, a modern dance that tells the powerful story of her battle with cancer. She also hosted a dance therapy workshop for cancer patients at GW. We snapped her bookended by We Will Survive Cancer vice chair Greg Davis and her husband Miguel Marroquin.
In honor of Germany's World Cup championship, McCormick & Schmick's provided finger foods and German beers. Here, its Penn Quarter GM Amine Ozzine and Tysons GM William Scholzen flank We Will Survive Cancer founder Gayela Bynum and Eller Group’s Michael Lilly.
