For several weeks Tabber Benedict, a New York based M& A Attorney, had planned the benefit luncheon to raise additional monies for the upcoming Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, slated for the upcoming weekend of October 15 & 16th. The inspiration for Benedict's involvement in the cause? The loss of his Aunt Sheila to cancer after it metastasized and claimed her life in 1997. Close friend and Breast Cancer Survivor Tia Walker served as Co-Host and Guest Speaker at the luncheon--speaking on early detection and awareness. Walker, Founder of Save the Eggs, a conduit program that raises monies for Breast Cancer/Fertility related organizations was diagnosed in February 2008 and completed treatment in December of the same year.
