Basser Jean Bash

On Tuesday, November 14th, we're celebrating five years of progress with our biennial fundraising event, the Basser Jean Bash. Held at Cipriani Wall Street, the event will honor Raquel and Michael Haas and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Dr. Siddhartha Mukherjee. Featured presenters and performers include the Today Show's Hoda Kotb, Broadway star Marin Mazzie, and singer Rachel Platten. The event is being generously underwritten so that every dollar raised will support the life-saving mission of the Basser Center for BRCA. Learn more about tickets, tables, and sponsorships at Basser.org/JeanBash.

Our first-ever Basser Jean Bash was held in November 2015 and honored Basser Center founders Mindy and Jon Gray. Over 1,100 people came out to Unzip their Genes and raise over $8 million to support the Basser Center. Guests heard stories of hope and inspiration and rocked out to Freestyle Love Supreme and American Authors. Thank you to our dedicated Gene Pool Committee, and all of the generous sponsors whose powerful support is bringing us closer to preventing BRCA-related cancers altogether. Check out the photos from the event on Facebook and local media coverage from Forbes, Bloomberg, ABC7NY, WWD, The Wall Street Journal, and AVENUE magazine. Watch the recap video here.

Breakthroughs & Discoveries Panel

The annual Breakthroughs & Discoveries panel is a moderated panel of world renowned experts in the field of BRCA gene mutations. From the translation of discoveries in the lab to patient care, to a deeper understanding of the role that having a BRCA1/2 mutation can mean to affected families, guests have the opportunity to learn about the latest in research breakthroughs and ask their most pressing questions about BRCA-related research and care. This program is held each year in May.

Elizabeth Prostic Memorial Outreach Program

Dr. Edward and Merry Prostic have generously established a webinar series as part of The Elizabeth Prostic Memorial Outreach Program at the Basser Center for BRCA in memory of their daughter, which will provide life-saving information and hope to individuals and families nationwide.
