The Kelly Cares Foundation honors her dedication at Irish Eyes Gala

We are proud to announce President and CEO of BCRF Myra Biblowit will be presented with the “Leadership in Health Award” at The Kelly Cares Foundation’s Irish Eyes Gala on March 16.  The Kelly Cares Foundation was established by dear friends of BCRF, Notre Dame head football coach Brian Kelly and his wife Paqui, to support organizations, initiatives and programs that align with values of the Kelly family. The Irish Eyes Gala is The Kelly Cares Foundation’s signature event; the gala celebrates each honorees' devout generosity and their inspiration of hope to others.

Kelley Tuthill, reporter for WCVB-Boston, and Linda Holliday, Director of the Bill Belichick Foundation, will present Myra with the prestigious award. Both Kelley and Linda have been long-standing supporters of BCRF’s work, including lending their expertise for the annual Boston Hot Pink Party and contributing vital year-round support.

 “Myra’s dedication to breast cancer patients and to finding a cure is remarkable,” says Brian Kelly.

Since its founding in 2008, the Kelly Cares Foundation has donated over $2 million to support causes locally, nationally and globally. We thank the Foundation and the Kelly Family for their support of BCRF and for honoring Myra’s dedication to fulfilling BCRF Founder Evelyn Lauder’s dream of finding a cure for breast cancer.
