Photos for a Cause - Ovarian Cancer Circle and Ruths Chris Steakhouse Woodland Hills .

The Ovarian Cancer Circle inspired by Robin Babbini was founded as a tribute to her daughter by Paulinda Schimmel Babbini.  Her daughter, Robin, had Ovarian Cancer and by the time it was diagnosed, it was too late for successful treatment.  Even the physician's misdiagnosed her based on her symptoms .

To honor her daughter and keep others from having the same experience, Paulinda's mission is to educate people on the symptoms so they can get early treatment and to fund finding a cure. To find out more visit www.theovariancancercircle.org

134 Women (and a few brave men) attended a lovely luncheon to benefit The Ovarian Cancer Circle inspired by Robin Babbini at Ruths Chris Steakhouse in Woodland Hills on February 21st. A silent auction and a raffle drawing contributed to the fun.  Over $8,000 and awareness of symptoms of Ovarian Cancer were raised at the event

Here are some of the photographs from the event and the rest can be found here:
