The Ward Center at St. Paul's School was in the pink for the American Cancer Society's "With One Voice" celebration to fight breast cancer. There were bunches of pink balloons, pink tablecloths, pink centerpieces and pink roses on the lapels of breast-cancer survivors.

Some 125 people gathered for a buffet dinner, including Barbara Little and Jeanne Tsakalos, event committee members; Sam Miller, ACS Mid-Atlantic board president; Dr. Mark J. Brenner and Jacqueline Chambers, board members; Harriet Legum, 1998 One Voice honoree; Charlie Leiss, chief operating officer of ACS Mid-Atlantic division; Dr. William Dooley, director of the Johns Hopkins Breast Center; Ellen McCallum, breast-cancer survivor; and A. Michael Jackson, partner in Greenspring Ventures.

After dinner, the ACS Awards of Hope were presented to Brenda Bottum, founder of the Maryland chapter of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, and Lillian Shockney, director of education and outreach at the Johns Hopkins Breast Center. The ceremony was followed by a performance by the comedy troupe the Capitol Steps.

The event raised $85,000 for the fight against breast cancer.
