Sky Foundationís Women's Event
Bluma Schechter, whose art-filled home overlooks Chalmers Lake, hosted a cocktail buffet friend raiser for Sheila Kasselmanís SKY Foundation. The foundationís mission Ė to find an early marker for pancreatic cancer - resonates with both women. Kasselman overcame pancreatic cancer because she badgered her doctors until it was diagnosed early enough for successful surgery and Schechterís husband of 51 years succumbed to pancreatic cancer last year.
Photos for Social Lights events include the HAVENís Promenade of Hope, Healing Waters Dinner Auction, Kadimaís Healthy Body Healthy Mind, Bound Togetherís High Tea, Cinco de Mayo, and the American Diabetes Associationís Unmasked Gala.
