January 9, 2018 GMT

Former presidents of the Houston Chapter of Hadassah, known as The Fab Five, including Lynn Goldberg, Barbara Horwitz, Carolyn Plessner, Marlene Rosenthal, and Annette Sondock, will be honored at Houston Chapter of Hadassah’s Breast Strokes: Hadassah Bares All for A.R.T (Awareness, Research, and Treatment).

New to Houston, this program blends the interests of the art, medical and local Houston communities and will take place on Sunday, Jan. 14 at 6:30 p.m. at The Citadel.

The event is known as “The Big Reveal,” as 43 women from their 30s to 70s, including several breast cancer survivors, had their torsos painted and photographed. The works of art will be revealed and for sale at this event to raise money for cancer and genetic research programs at the Hadassah Medical Organization (HMO) in Israel, and for cancer education, advocacy and prevention in the United States. In addition, the event will have a separate art auction featuring a variety of artists.

This evening of art, music, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres also will honor Dr. Jenny C. Chang, the director of Houston Methodist Cancer Center, and Emily Hermann, chair in cancer research. Chang’s clinical research aims to evaluate novel biologic agents in breast cancer patients.
