The North Fork Breast Health Coalition will again celebrate breast-cancer survivors, providers and caregivers at the Annual Pink Pearl Gala of the non-profit organization. The cocktail reception, seated dinner, and dancing to music by Phil Schmidt of Make Some Noise DJs will be held at East Wind Long Island.

During this year’s gala, the North Fork Breast Health Coalition will honor the Peconic River Sportsman’s Club with the Community Spirit Award. For the past seven years, the club has held annual events open to the public that have raised many thousands of dollars for breast cancer coalitions. In addition, Keri Lynn Stromski of Jamesport, who valiantly fought Stage IV breast cancer, will receive the inaugural Medal of Honor posthumously. Her family is expected to accept the award.

The Pink Pearl Underwriter of this year’s gala is the Simmons Point Group of Janney Montgomery Scott LLC, led by Gary Lukachinski, CFP. With offices across Long Island, the Simmons Point Group is an experienced team of financial professionals at Janney Montgomery Scott LLC—one of the nation’s most prestigious investment firms.

Last year, a new tradition was started in lieu of the usual celebration. Taking health concerns into consideration, the North Fork Breast Health Coalition held a safely-distanced Pink Pearl Raffle at the organization’s office, 185 Old Country Road, Riverhead, over several days. This year, the gift baskets can be previewed and tickets purchased beforehand at the office from April 1-3, as well as during the gala.
