Dozens of North Fork residents and cancer survivors came out to support the North Fork Breast Health Coalition at its fourth annual Pink Pearl Gala at the East Wind in Wading River Friday.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the nonprofit organization, which returns all funds raised from its events to locals diagnosed with breast cancer. Melanie McEvoy Zuhoski joined the coalition’s board around 2012 and now serves as vice president. She took part in the grants, outreach and free programs they offer such as free yoga classes, massage therapy, reflexology and support groups.
This year’s gala was emceed by News 12 reporter Shari Einhorn. Several supporters of the organization, including longtime board member Susie Bandiera, were honored at the event.
