10th Annual Pink Roses Teal Magnolias Raises $1 MILLION to Fight Breast, Gynecologic Cancer 
The Cooper Foundation’s 10th Annual Pink Roses Teal Magnolias Brunch last month raised a record-breaking $1 MILLION for breast and gynecologic cancer research and clinical programs at MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper.
 
More than 85 0 people attended the brunch, which is the largest, most successful fundraiser benefiting breast and gynecologic cancer in the Delaware Valley.

“Pink Roses Teal Magnolias is a healing movement fueled by the power of hope and the strength of sisterhood that supports fellow survivors and advocates for research and care for breast and gynecologic cancer,” said Susan Bass Levin, President and CEO of The Cooper Foundation and an ovarian cancer survivor. “To raise $1 million is a testament to the passion of the Pink and Teal community and their dedication to finding a cure for women’s cancer once and for all.” 
 
A special thanks to our co-chairs Donna Forman, Ilene Grossman, Janet Knowles, Josephine McGinniss and Carolyn Shelby, along with MD Anderson at Cooper leaders Generosa Grana, MD, Francis Spitz, MD, Robert Somer, MD, David Warshal, MD, and Anthony Dragun, MD and our Pink & Teal Champions, Barbara Abrams, Susan Jacobucci, Francheska Vargas and Vicki Zell, who shared their stories.

Cherry Hill Imports Auto Group Sponsors Cars for Kids
Having surgery can be stressful for anyone, but especially for children. Thanks to a special donation from Cherry Hill Imports Auto Group, children at Children’s Regional Hospital at Cooper will now have a new way to relieve some of their stress and anxiety while preparing for surgery.

“As longtime supporters of Cooper, we wanted to do something special for the children, something that would make a difference during their stay,” said Michael Hartung, president of Cherry Hill Imports Auto Group who serves as a member of The Cooper Foundation Board of Trustees along with his daughter, Amanda DiMattia, COO of Cherry Hill Imports Auto Group. “We are proud to support the important work that takes place at Cooper every day.” 

Representatives of Cherry Hill Imports and the Hartung Family visited Cooper to donate three mini, luxury remote-controlled cars – a Volkswagen Beetle, a Mercedes, and an Audi. The cars will be used by the children under staff supervision to drive themselves to the Operating Room prior to surgery.
