Since its inception thirteen years ago, Women & Wine has become one of the premier events for the Washington area’s most influential women business leaders in the fight against breast cancer.
The event, which benefits Georgetown Lombardi’s Nina Hyde Center for Breast Cancer Research, is a women’s only dinner featuring a cocktail reception, silent auction and award presentation to recognize outstanding individuals in their fight against breast cancer. The Nina Hyde Center for Breast Cancer Research was established in 1989 by designer Ralph Lauren and the late Washington Post Company president Katherine Graham, as a tribute to their friend Nina Hyde.
Georgetown Lombardi’s breast cancer program is home to nearly 70 breast cancer researchers and clinicians who study breast cancer exclusively. One of just 49 National Cancer Institute designated comprehensive cancer centers in the nation, Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center is the only cancer center of its kind in the Washington, DC area.
