A Night at the Gallery - Privy Circle x City of Hope x Lexus Collaborate for Fashion.Art.Music. Benefit for Asian Breast Cancer Awareness

A Night at the Gallery-Asian Breast Cancer Awareness

They say it is better to give than to receive, and last Saturday, Privy Circle was at its best.

For one night only on Saturday, October 15th, Privy Circle, in conjunction with City of Hope, hosted “LEXUS NIGHT AT THE GALLERY,” a Fashion.Art.Music benefit to raise money for the National Asian Breast Cancer Initiative (NABCI). Privy Circle was able to raise over $12K for NABCI! In addition, we helped raise an addition $8K for City of Hope, thanks to a considerable donation from the Synn family




Asian breast cancer awareness has been an integral facet of NABCI’s mission since the initiative’s inception in 2013. This cause was personal to Privy Circle CEO Stephen Liu, whose own mother had been diagnosed with breast cancer -- but only after seeking a third opinion. One of NABCI’s goals is to dispel the notion that “Asian women don’t get breast cancer,” which seems to be unfortunately prevalent amongst U.S. doctors. Steve’s mother, fortunately, survived. So Privy Circle spearheaded the National Asian Breast Cancer Initiative to address these unique cultural, linguistic and biological challenges related to breast cancer that Asian women may face.




As part of its mission, this month NABCI has been leading a national #asianbreastcancer social media campaign. Our NABCI Advocates are a diverse group of influencers and organizations of note, with a reach of over 18M people, including Karrueche Tran, Kelly Hu, Ken Jeong, Megan Lee, Lisa Ling, the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, Angry Asian Man, Kore Asian Media, Destination Luxury, Mochi Magazine, and Yomyomf. A full list of NABCI Advocates can be found
