Signature fundraiser held in Marin County, California
Our signature fundraiser is Stepping Out To Celebrate Life, an annual gala that takes place in September at the Marin Center Exhibit Hall in San Rafael, California. The highlight of this spectacular evening is an uplifting, inspirational fashion show featuring models thriving after breast cancer on the runway.
The origin of our Stepping Out gala fashion show is the very heart of To Celebrate Life. In 1996, 10 women in a dance class for breast cancer thrivers came together to organize an event that would raise money for local breast health organizations. Thirty seven models were featured on the ‘runway’ and 250 guests attended the first Stepping Out To Celebrate Life gala, held in a garden in Kentfield. The event raised $42,000 and the beginning of an annual signature event was born. Stepping Out not only raises money but serves to celebrate those emerging from breast cancer treatment.
