Photo Coverage: What a Pair! Benefit in LA

On Friday, April 8, 2005, at 8:00 pm, Friends of the Breast Program at UCLA presented its third "WHAT A PAIR!" concert to take place at UCLA's Royce Hall. This enchanting evening of musical theater duets will feature performances by some of Hollywood's most accomplished and talented women in film, television, and music.

"WHAT A PAIR! 3" will honor Academy Award® winner Renée Zellweger and breast cancer survivor Nanci Ryder, President of BWR Public Relations firm, both having served on the Board and Honorary Board of Friends of the Breast Program since its inception in 2000. Friends of the Breast Program at UCLA was established in February 2000 in support of The Revlon/UCLA Breast Center. The Revlon/UCLA Breast Center is recognized nationally and internationally as a leading center for breast cancer research and treatment. Proceeds from the event will benefit Dr. Helena Chang's breast cancer vaccine research at the Revlon/UCLA Breast Center.
