for our RSFbpw Luncheon

LOCATION: Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club

5827 Via De La Cumbre, Rancho Santa Fe, CA 92067

11:15 AM -1:30 P.M.


Does anyone else feel like July and August flew by at record speeds? Ready or not, here comes all the pumpkin spice and holiday decorations, which means that December will be here in literally no time at all! Let's take some time to pause and reflect on the successes we have had this year already, big or small, and be proud of all of the accomplishments you have had thus far! Also, take a moment to think about the path ahead... What are the small actions you can start taking now that will lead up to big results by the the end of the year? What are the barriers you can remove for yourself and your team to be successful? Rather than focusing on challenges and problems, concentrate on finding solutions! Don't forget to show your gratitude for the people supporting you along the way and give yourself grace if life has thrown roadblocks that have derailed you. I want to thank each of you for showing up for each other this year and helped make Our group so special! I truly enjoy seeing all of your beautiful faces every month :) Happy Fall y'all!!!

Please don't forget to invite a guest to join us.

Our September Speaker 

David M. Knoll

Helen Knoll Foundation


David is the Founder of the Helen Knoll Foundation, a 501C3 charity in memory of his late wife, Helen. As a father, he watched his teen-age daughters cope with this new breast cancer paradigm. His daughters were given sympathy from the Medical community and told to “wait and see” until age 40. This wasn’t acceptable. David knew that there must be pro-active ways to prevent breast cancer and stop it before it starts.

David is a native San Diegan and attended Harvard University with a major in biological science. Here he took his first course in the biology of cancer. After a year of minor league baseball, he completed a Master of Science degree in Biology and Civil Engineering at San Diego State University. It was here that he met Helen, a nursing student, and they married in 1982. 

After working in an engineering consulting business, David decided to pursue his passion for photography and started Ivy League Photography. Through education and print competitions, David earned the Professional Photographer of America Master’s degree and photographic craftsmen. This is earned by less than 10% of all professional photographers. He has been a Master Photographer for over thirty years.

He was married for 23 years, when his wife Helen died in 2006 at the age of 48 after a 10 year battle with of breast cancer. At the memorial service, the Helen Knoll Foundation was started in her honor; to make sense of losing a mother of two daughters. The daughters, Laura and Christi, were deeply affected by her death and a fearful legacy of breast cancer in their future. 

To counteract their family history, David and the Helen Knoll Foundation scoured the research and found a remarkable statistic; less than 10% of breast cancer is genetic and the rest is lifestyle behaviors and choices that could be managed. This became the mission of the Helen Knoll Foundation of advocacy for young women, lowering risk factors and, importantly, changing one's behavior could cut the risk in half. He is excited by UCSD's cancer research and over 200 peer reviewed papers discovering that optimal levels of Vitamin D3 can reduce the occurrence by 77% and reoccurrence by 50%.

David has remarried to his present wife, Susie, and lives in Escondido. Retired from photography, he continues using his energy in pursuing the prevention of breast cancer and creating their college/high school outreach program to educate and empower young women, significantly lower risk and live a future with hope, not fear.

Laura Lavoie is the City Director of Humble Design San Diego, a nonprofit serving families, individuals, and veterans leaving homelessness by transforming their empty houses into personalized, professionally-designed homes filled with furniture and home goods donated by the community. (Think HGTV for people who need it!) More than a makeover, it’s a start over. And, it works. Nationally, nearly 50% of people who leave homelessness return to the shelters or the streets within a year. But 97% of Humble San Diego clients remain in their homes. Simply put, Humble Design changes lives for good.

Members and visitors must individually ask each member for permission to place them on any form of mass communication-email blasts, newsletter lists, U.S. Mail lists or group texts. Without each member's individual permission, we consider this type of communication to be an act of spamming. To build long-term relationships with members please write personal notes and emails first and after developing rapport, ask these members only for permission to place them on your mailing list. Thank you for your cooperation.
