Jersey City, NJ - Julie DiGioia, MD, renowned breast cancer specialist and this year's chair of the Susan G. Komen North Jersey Race for a Cure, will host a benefit kickoff party on Wednesday, May 3, 2017, 6 PM to 9 PM, at Zeppelin Hall, 88 Liberty View Drive in Jersey City.
The purpose of the event is to support and help raise awareness of the work of the Susan G. Komen organization. Tickets are $25 per person and include a drink ticket and a ticket for the extensive basket tricky tray. Live music will be provided by the exciting New Jersey band Running Late.
"I am so honored to serve as this year's chair," said Dr. Julie, as she is known to her many grateful patients. "I was born and raised in Jersey City, so this year it's particularly gratifying to have the race held for the first time ever in Hudson County. I am extending the invitation to anyone who wants to support this most worthy cause, whether they are participating in the race or not."
The Race for the Cure will be held on Sunday, May 21, 2017 in Liberty State Park, Jersey City, NJ. The subject of breast cancer is of personal importance to Dr. DiGioiaherself as she, like many of her devoted patients, is a breast cancer survivor.
