Breast Cancer Resource Center Champagne Brunch, 9/11/11, Long Center
It took a venue the size of the Long Center to accommodate the Breast Cancer Resource Center Champagne Brunch. Honorary Chairs Linda Ball and Forrest Preece got a real workout to patrol the party as it extended to three levels and the entire width of the Long Center. Music filled the air with tunes from Croondaddy, Durden Family Gospel Singers, Andrew Grainger and the Jeff Lofton Trio. After mingling and munching, guests enjoyed the comments of Ruth and James Pennebaker.
