NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - August 21, 2007) - Women Against Cancer (WAC) is hosting its annual Pink and White Party with a Purpose to raise funds for the fight against breast cancer. The 2007 Pink and White Party will take place Saturday, August 25, 2007 from 4:00 to 9:30 pm at BLVD/Crash Mansion, 199 Bowery, NYC. This event provides food, fun, entertainment, DJ and dancing as well as a silent bachelor/bachelorette auction. All ticket holders are automatically entered in a raffle to win many wonderful gifts, donated by area businesses.

WAC hosted the event last year, in which 100% of the proceeds were donated to the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. Each year WAC facilitates an exciting bachelor/bachelorette silent auction. Lamman Rucker, who guest starred in the television show "Half & Half," participated in last year's event. "We raised quite a bit of money through Lamman's participation. In fact we received the highest bid (donation) for him," said Lisa Bland, Treasurer for WAC.

"We are extremely excited about this year's program. WAC offers attendees a wide range of entertainment and opportunities in support of a worthy cause," said Erica Ford, Executive Director of LIFECAMP, INC. The event will offer food, live entertainment, retail opportunities and the increasingly popular silent auction. "Not to mention giveaways. Last year WAC gave away sports memorabilia and autographed items from recording artists," continued Ford.

Each year more and more people come to enjoy the live entertainment and shop at the retail booths. "The Women Against Cancer event provides a venue for individuals from culturally diverse backgrounds to come out and have a great time," added Ford.
