Avon Foundation for Women Awards

2012 marks the 20th anniversary of Avon’s Breast Cancer Crusade. Over the last two decades, Avon global philanthropy in 58 countries has donated more than $780 million to organizations around the world to accelerate breast cancer research and improve access to breast health care for all women.

Our Oct. 30, 2012, Avon Foundation for Women Awards Gala was planned to celebrate the important achievements that our support has made possible. But, our 12th annual Gala was canceled for the first time ever, as Hurricane Sandy stormed through New York City. So we want to take this opportunity to recognize the leadership of some extraordinary doctors, scientists, and advocates whom we’ve had the honor to support.
