Joan Capurro is well known across Marin.
The time the San Anselmo resident has given to nonprofits and other groups across the county has linked her with the Salvation Army, the San Rafael Chamber of Commerce, the Marin History Museum and other organizations.
Later this month, the 75-year-old will add Kentfield’s To Celebrate Life Breast Cancer Foundation to the list as she models in the nonprofit’s Stepping Out fashion show. The nonprofit, which provides support to those diagnosed with breast cancer, has its 21st annual gala and fashion show on Sept. 24.
Capurro, who was diagnosed with breast cancer early this year, says she is proud to strut the catwalk in Eileen Fisher, Macy’s and other brands for a good cause.

Hero & Zero: Gala for a cause & kitten overload – Pacific Sun | Marin County, California
By Nikki Silverstein
Hero: Breast cancer survivors will model the latest styles at the Breast Cancer Foundation’s Stepping Out To Celebrate Life annual gala next week. Though some of the models are currently battling the disease and undergoing treatment, they’ll sashay down the runway escorted by prominent physicians to raise funds for the foundation’s grants program. By distributing money to local nonprofit organizations, the program helps provide services for underserved populations living with breast cancer. Help support this worthy cause by attending the gala, which includes gourmet dining, a fashion show, live music, dancing and an auction. It takes place on Saturday, September 24 at the Marin Center Exhibit Hall. For more information, call 415/455-5882.
Zero: Cardboard boxes housed 34 cats and kittens that were abandoned outside of the Marin Humane Society (MHS) during the middle of the night last week Continue Reading →
With so many non profits asking for your help you may be wondering, why support To Celebrate Life? The theme of this annual report says it best: your dollars + our stewardship = proven results.
As we look towards our 17th year, having returned to an all-volunteer status, we can ensure that your generosity and support of To Celebrate Life Breast Cancer Foundation is the right decision. Your dollars, along with funds raised from our 2011 events, enable carefully screened nonprofit organizations to provide direct services to women and men living with breast cancer.
Each year we receive grant requests for hundreds of thousands of dollars. As you’ll see in the + our stewardship section of this report, the Foundation’s Grants Committee thoroughly evaluates each applicant. And, grantees are closely monitored, including annual site visits, so you can be certain that your contributions are helping people with real needs (see stories on pages 2-3). A description of our 2011 grantees is featured on pages 4-5, = proven results.
Of course, this is only possible with the support of our loyal sponsors and donors, our dedicated volunteers and the tremendous talent pool that provides thousands of hours of valuable in-kind service.
Thank you, all of you, for partnering with us to make a difference in the lives of those living with breast cancer. No one should face breast cancer alone. With your help, no one will.
Last September, we marked the start of our 15th Anniversary year! What began as a garden party fashion show has blossomed into a vibrant, enduring community whose members have enriched the lives of thousands of women and men coping with breast health issues. At the end of 2010, the Foundation had contributed more than $3.1 million dollars to dozens of nonprofit organizations throughout the Bay Area.
The theme of this year’s annual report is “The Gift of Giving.” We are profoundly grateful to each of you who have contributed to the Foundation’s continuing advancement – through your gifts of time, talent and resources to support breast health and recovery.
