AMC community relations director Nancy Stewart, Dr. Virginia Borges, AMC executive director Alice Norton and Jonna Tamases at the Women's Event in June 2010.

The First Annual Women’s Event on June 9, 2010 raised $14,000 and generated challenge grants for UCCC,s Young Women’s Breast Cancer Translational Research Program. AMC supporters Walter and Laura Dear challenged guests to match their personal donation of $10,000, and donors are rising to the challenge. The event featured Jonna Tamases’s one-woman play, “Jonna’s Body, Please Hold,” which chronicles her life as a three-time cancer survivor. Her funny, touching performance was well received.
