Susan G. Komen® Perfect Pink Party Brings Together Political Leaders, Celebrities and Dignitaries and Raises Over 1.4 Million Dollars
In four years the four galas have raised almost 5 million to fight breast cancer
The shimmering Royal Park Bridge bathed in pink lights marked a weekend that would raise awareness about breast cancer and generate funds to educate, research and treat the disease. The 2014 Susan G. Komen® Perfect Pink Party featured a “Venetian Splendor” theme with incredible décor adding a 17thcentury Italian elegance to the Grand Ballroom at the Mar-a-Lago club. A rare private performance by International singing prodigy Jackie Evancho moved the audience. Miss Evancho, best known from her discovery on the TV show “America’s Got Talent”, is the youngest platinum artist in music history and came directly to the event from starring in the Christmas show at Carnegie Hall. She was presented by Tim and Christie Gannon of PDQ restaurants.
This year’s Gala Chairs, Tim Gannon and Susan Bodnar Malloy headed the efforts. Honorary Chairs Ellen Levy and Mark and Mary Freitas and Founding Chair Patty Muyra, and New York Ambassador Donald Trump helped complete the successful evening . Susan G. Komen founder, Ambassador Nancy G. Brinker said of their work, “The chairs and committee dedicated themselves to raising much need funds for research and to help individuals fighting breast cancer and to provide a wonderful and memorable experience for those in the community who support this effort. They accomplished both of their goals and I am most grateful.” 
Susan G. Komen CEO Judith Salerno, in Palm Beach for her first Perfect Pink Gala, said she was enjoying making new friends here and that she has learned hero’s come in many forms, “Those with the disease who refuse to give up, families and friends of breast cancer patients who  make a difficult journey more bearable, and all those here tonight who support Komen’s research and our community work.  We’re deeply grateful for the friendship and commitment of every member of our Komen family.”
If the live performance, wonderful foods and elegant décor set the tone for the evening, then the luxury auction items certainly added even more sparkle.  Offerings included a rare 89 carat carved emerald butterfly brooch designed by Christopher Walling and presented by A.R.T Jewelers, A Ferragamo Italian getaway for eight in Florence, Italy, A seven day adventure for twelve on board the luxury 138’ yacht O’Pari, and two VIP trip experiences, one from MasterCard at the 56th Annual GRAMMY Awards and another with the Dallas Cowboys. 
Hundreds of thousands of dollars from the Perfect Pink Party stay here in the local community.  Last year the Susan G. Komen South Florida Affiliate provided resources for over 6,000 breast cancer screenings, from which over 50 breast cancers were diagnosed.  Without this funding, these cancers would have been missed.  Additionally, a portion goes to support Susan G. Komen’s ground-breaking research grants.  Recently, scientists supported by Komen sponsored grants, discovered that there are four basic types of breast cancer. Not only will breast cancer benefit from these types of discoveries, but so will all types of cancer.  Susan G. Komen is the largest private funder of breast cancer research in the United States and is the only one that provides funding for the direct care of women and men. For more information visit
