CHILDREN OF LOSS COME TOGETHER: ATALIE’S HOPE GALA
New York, New York, June 09, 2014 – Atalie’s Hope will host its second annual gala, Thursday June 26, 2014 in New Hyde Park, NY. Cost is $150.00 per person and all proceeds will go towards the foundation. Atalie’s Hope was founded in honor of Atalie Bernic, a young mother who lost her battle against triple negative breast cancer when she was 39 years old. She is survived by her daughter Julia, age 9, who inspired the formation of this organization.
A night of hope will include honoring two important members of our Atalie’s Hope community:
Ms. Susan Thomas, the program director for the Center for H.O.P.E. (Healing, Opportunity, Perseverance, Enlightenment) and Mr. Howard Capell, ESQ an attorney of law that has graciously given probono work for the support of the Atalie’s Hope cause along with a number of other charitable endeavors.
“Susan Thomas and Howard Capell were instrumental in the formation of Atalie’s Hope. Their daily work for those in need is truly inspirational, and it is our privilege to honor them,” – Nada Bernic, President of Atalie’s Hope.
Atalie’s Hope will also announce the first ever family recipient of the “Gift of Hope.” The Gift of Hope was founded in efforts to continue to inspire families that are coping with loss. This year, the Gift of Hope will be given to a family that recently lost their mother to breast cancer; the children and their father will receive all-expenses paid trip to Disney.
Breast cancer is the second most common cancer diagnosed in American women; about 1 in 8 US women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. This has the potential to leave a large number of people indirectly affected by the disease as they continue to live in the aftermath of this disease. Ensuring those affected, especially the children, have the support they need is critical and that’s what Atalie’s Hope stands for.
