Former City Councilwoman and breast cancer survivor Marti Emerald has been tapped to host Susan G. Komen San Diego’s upcoming More than Pink dinner being held on April 11. The fundraiser at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla at Aventine will bring together more than 350 survivors, supporters, community members, and experts for an evening of inspiration and education.
“Pink is more than a color. It represents the impact that each person is making in the fight against the most frequently diagnosed cancer worldwide,” said Shaina Gross, president and CEO, Komen San Diego. “This event motivates, inspires and shows us how San Diego is much more than pink.”
Tickets are available at komensandiego.org/dinner.
