Veteran television personality and author Joan Lunden will be the keynote speaker at the 31st annual fall benefit luncheon for the Lynn Sage Cancer Research Foundation.

The Oct. 25 event at the Chicago Hilton will support research into a cure for breast cancer, along with supporting fellowships and educational programs at Northwestern Medicine and the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University. Lunden is a breast cancer survivor and wrote a book about it, “Had I Known: A Memoir of Survival.”

Brad Jarol and Loren Palmer will serve as co-chairs for the luncheon, which will begin at 11 a.m. and include a “Purse-Sue the Cure” silent auction of more than 200 new, collectible and children’s handbags, donated by retailers and private collections.

Founded in 1985 by a small group of Lynn Sage’s closest friends and family members, LSCRF has to date raised more than $31 million toward the understanding of breast cancer. For the past 25 years it has been affiliated with Northwestern Medicine, helping to fund research at the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center.
