Todd Associates supports Miracles Happen benefit on Nov. 13

Todd Associates is proud to once again serve as a major sponsor of the 8th annual Miracles Happen, a benefit for advanced breast cancer research at University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center, taking place Friday, November 13 at 6:30 p.m. at Shaker Heights Country Club, 3300 Courtland Boulevard in Shaker Heights.

The Miracle Fund was established in memory of Diana Hyland Miracles Happen benefitwho lost her battle with the devastating disease of metastatic breast cancer in 2008. The Fund’s mission is to further research for advanced breast cancer focusing on new theories, trials and treatments aimed at managing the cancer and extending lives. Every dollar raised goes directly to University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center – a leader in advanced breast cancer research.

Stanton Gerson, M.D., Director, Case Comprehensive Cancer Center, Director, University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center, said, “The Miracle Fund is a truly inspiring community endeavor that facilitates highly innovative research. Equipped with knowledge gained from this research, UH Seidman Cancer Center has become a national leader in the development of new therapies to eradicate metastatic breast cancer.”

Diana Hyland understood that the research that these dollars would generate would not benefit her personally, but she wanted other women to survive and be cured of metastatic breast cancer. She knew that her wish could only be realized through innovative research and clinical trials.

Since its inception, the Miracle Fund has raised more than $4 million. What makes the Miracle Fund unique is that it is one of the first funds to focus solely on advanced breast cancer. The need for new trials, treatments and research for advanced breast cancer is greater than ever.

The evening will feature gourmet food stations by local noted chef and restaurateur Zack Bruell and Shaker Heights Country Club Executive Chef Matt Gambatese, plus live music by the Mike Petrone Band and a silent auction.

Again this year, 350 tickets will be sold as part of the Vacation Raffle. The winner chooses from one of three fabulous packages; raffle tickets are available online prior to the event. Attire is dressy casual.

Gala tickets are $125. To purchase tickets or for more information, call (216) 844-0416 or visit www.uhgiving.org/miracleshappen.
