Giuliana Rancic is the anchor of E! News, co-star of E!’s hugely popular Fashion Police team and has been on the red carpet for every mega-event in the entertainment industry (Oscars, Grammy Awards, Golden Globes) interviewing the stars and getting breaking Hollywood scoop as well as fashion tips, diet and fitness advice, travel tips and all things pop culture.
At the podium, Rancic teaches women to focus on the positive and use their attitude to manage their emotional pain. A pillar of strength, Rancic motivates audiences by opening up about her own bout with breast cancer, connecting with them on a personal level, encouraging them to take control of their health and their futures.
“We are so proud to be partnering with the Bennett Cancer Center’s Paint the Town Pink breast cancer awareness campaign,” said SCA Executive Director Elissa O. Getto. “Community partnerships are so important when trying to raise awareness. The Bennett Cancer Center does a tremendous job with this campaign each year, and we feel honored to be able to give back to the community through this event and through the real life survival story of Giuliana Rancic.”
”Over the years, the Paint the Town Pink campaign has been very successful in raising awareness about the importance of breast cancer screening and early detection, as well as celebrating the lives of those who have been touched by the disease,” said Stamford Hospital’s Cancer Service Line Director Liz Manfredo. “We believe that Rancic will resonate with our audience, inspire other women and extend awareness for a cause that touches so many of our lives.”
SCA will also be selling hand crafted pink cashmere scarves by Jammu Style in honor of breast cancer awareness. These one of a kind scarves are hand woven and hand dyed and jeweled with Swarovski crystals. The scarves are $75, and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Bennett Cancer Center.
