The Pamela Castriota Cancer Awareness Organization Inc., (“PCCAO”), in association with A Fe We Culture Inc., and Country Kitchen Restaurant, will host “Celebrating Unity & Life” – a fundraiser dinner. This inaugural event also celebrates the organization’s first anniversary and will be held on Thursday March 20, 2014, at the Country Kitchen Restaurant 810 Pelham Parkway, Pelham Manor, NY 10803.
“Celebrating Unity & Life”, seeks to spotlight courage, strength, community, life and PCCAO’s impact in cultivating new pathways to promote cancer awareness. This event will examine community challenges and cultural roots, and will at the same time bring together businesses and institutions in an ongoing mission to empower our community on various issues. Jamaica’s Minister of Health Hon. Dr. Fenton Ferguson will be the guest speaker.
PCCAO Inc., is a non-profit organization that evolved out of Mrs. Pamela Castriota’s desire to help. The organization was developed to advocate, educate and encourage early testing, to eradicate the social stigmas associated with the disease, focusing on adolescents and young individuals in Urban/Jamaican/Caribbean communities. The organization endeavors to identify resources for persons affected by cancer and pinpoint sustainable resources to ensure the organization’s growth and impact.
Mrs. Castriota is the inspiration behind this endeavor. She was first diagnosed with breast cancer in October 1998. A Fe We Culture is acting for and on behalf of the PCCAO until the organization attains its individual 501(c)(3) status. A Fe We Culture, through this alliance will provide high visibility for cancer awareness and those supporting the cause.
