Last night to kick off the May 20 Newsbabes Bash, we headed to a cocktail party in the private lounge of the Apartments at City Center.
Newsbabes is a charity founded by DC newswomen to bring survivors, advocates, and friends together to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer. We snapped NBC 4’s Dianna Russini, Angie Goff, and Heather McDonough, surrounding Fox 5’s Laura Evans.
100 well-known names from TV news and the media industry came to draw excitement to the upcoming sixth annual pink cocktail party, the Newsbabes Bash for Breast Cancer. Here, Dewey Square Group’s Anu Rangappa, consultant Adrienne Shoch, and ABC 7’s Rebecca Cooper.
This year’s bash will benefit Survivors Offering Support, which lets breast cancer patients and survivors share their experiences with others. Here, WUSA 9’s Lesli Foster and Andrea Roane, and PR maven Jill Collins.
While mingling, guests enjoyed Righteous Cheese’s artisanal cheeses, Acadiana’s etouffee, and Georgetown Cupcakes’ pink cupcakes. Here, Breast Cancer Comfort’s Melanie Nix, WTOP’s Lori Lundin, and PG County gov’s Jacqueline Woody.
A highlight was a surprise $10,000 donation by Barry Glassman. Here, Disruption Corp’s Brooke Salkoff and Brandon Gadoci, On The Marc Media’s Kathy Silverstein, and ABC 7’s Kendis Gibson.
