Women in Medicine and Law is a grassroots organization founded fifteen years ago for the purpose of bringing women in these two noble professions--and their friends--together with the dual goals of philanthropy and fellowship, while having a little fun along the way. The sentinel event of each year is the Women in Medicine and Law Dinner benefiting Susan G. Komen® in the quest to find a cure for breast cancer. All of the work for this event is performed by volunteers and all costs are underwritten by various corporate and personal sponsors, so that one hundred percent of the donors' contributions are forwarded to Susan G. Komen® in the form of a restricted grant to be used for medical research. Individual tickets may be purchased for $250, or a named table is recognized with a $2500 donation. Additional contributions may be made through raffle sales, silent auction bids, or purchases at the "pink market". Since beginning our efforts in 2004, the event has grown in both attendees and donations. Including last year, our cumulative donations to date have been $1,951,000!!
