Great (F.) Scott!: The Tenfold Forty’s good karma is helping Johns Hopkins’ cause! The University’s Center for Cervical Dysplasia can count on another $5,000 in research funds thanks to The Tenfold Forty’s “Black & White Affair” fundraiser, held last Saturday night at F. Scott’s in Georgetown.
With self-proclaimed hopes that “the good [they] do will come back to [them] tenfold,” the nonprofit, by-invitation-only philanthropist group of forty women chose to dedicate this year’s fundraising efforts towards the advancement of cervical cancer research, kicking things off with the evening’s 20s-themed Gala.
“We wanted to stay within the community and local,” said Tenfold Forty founder Cailin Monahan of the group’s decision to fund Johns Hopkins, “and [the university] has a great program, with very forward-thinking research.”
“For our demographic [HPV-caused cervical cancer] needs more awareness.”
Tenfold Forty members and over 100 of their friends attended the event, enjoying an open bar, music and dancing, as well as a raffle featuring gift cards and gift baskets from the likes of Whole Foods, Home Depot, Georgetown Cupcake and other favorites.
