Open the Door Awards Dinner and Auction

The Women’s Breast & Heart Initiative honored its most dedicated supporters and volunteers at Turnberry Isle at its Eighth Annual Open the Door Awards Dinner and Auction, presented by honorary chairs Don and Michele Soffer and presenting sponsor Baptist Health South Florida. Honored were Mario Martinez, a dedicated volunteer since 2010; Kenneth & Julie Duke, recipients of the Spirit of Service Award; and 50 State Security, a supporter of the Women’s Breast & Heart Initiative since 2007. An outreach organization founded in 2006, the Women’s Breast & Heart Initiative’s mission is to educate women about the importance of breast & heart health, while providing women with the resources to prevent breast cancer and heart disease through a three-pronged strategy. This strategy includes a screening referral program, ongoing annual screening and door-to-door outreach initiatives. The organization reaches an average of 11,000 homes annually – providing breast and heart health education, access to mammograms and screenings for heart disease to women whose disease might otherwise go undetected.
