Land Rover Milford: Lead corporate sponsor of Rose of Hope Celebrity Champagne Reception, an annual benefit for The Norma F. Pfriem Breast Care Center

FAIRFIELD, CT – Land Rover Milford will be the lead corporate sponsor of the Rose of Hope Celebrity Champagne Reception, part of the Rose of Hope Luncheon, an annual benefit for the Norma F. Pfriem Breast Care Center, for the second year. The luncheon, which takes place in June, raises funds for the Center’s programs for underserved women.

Each year the Breast Care Center helps over 1,000 women access free screening and diagnostic services to prevent early death from breast cancer through its Medically Underserved Initiative, the largest program of free care in the area. The annual luncheon, which raises funds to support this program, attracts over 600 individuals, many of them breast cancer survivors, and takes place in Fairfield.

Her husband, Bill, is a motivational speaker and Chicago real estate developer who was hired by The Trump Organization at the conclusion of the first season of The Apprentice.

“We are fortunate to have so many committed supporters and friends,” says Dr. Donna Twist, Executive Director of the Norma F. Pfriem Breast Care Center. “Land Rover’s generosity ensures that we can continue to make a difference in the lives of women and their families.”
