The Miles of Hope Annual Spring Brunch is Sunday, May 3, at the Grandview in Poughkeepsie. In its 11th year, the event will honor Marist College with a capacity crowd.

“Every year, this event gets better and better with more people, more excitement — it is the must-attend Spring event in the Hudson Valley!” explained Executive Director Pari Forood. “We are thrilled to be honoring Marist College this year for all they have done for us throughout our 11 year history,” Ms. Forood added.

Lisa Arnoff, Chairman of the Miles of Hope Board of Directors and Co-Chairman of the Annual Spring Brunch expressed her excitement at the donated items in the Silent Auction: “Jewelry from nationally-recognized designers, as well as Tiffany just in time for Mother’s day! We have NY Giants tickets, sold out concert tickets, vacation houses, theater tickets and a grand prize raffle of a trip for 2, with air fare and hotel to Aruba.”

“The Brunch attracts breast cancer survivors, friends, family and colleagues,” explained Miles of Hope co-founder Cathy Varunok. “It is a feel-good event allowing everyone to laugh and have fun while remembering why Miles of Hope exists as the only regional breast cancer foundation in our area – to fund support services for people affected by breast cancer within the 8 counties of the Hudson Valley, NY.”
