BOCA RATON, FL ( — If you loved him “St. Elmo’s Fire,” “Parks and Rec,” or as Sam Seaborn on “The West Wing,” you will not want to miss Rob Lowe when he steps up to serve as keynote speaker for Boca Raton Regional Hospital’s “Go Pink” luncheon in October.
Lowe has a very personal reason for support breast cancer research. Read on for the details from the hospital:

Rob Lowe, star of TV and film and a cancer awareness advocate, will be the

keynote speaker at Boca Raton Regional Hospital Foundation’s 10th Anniversary  Go Pink
Luncheon on Friday, October 25, 2012. The event raises funds and awareness for the fight
against breast cancer at the Hospital’s Christine E. Lynn Women’s Health & Wellness Institute.
Lowe is a best-selling author and Emmy and Golden Globe nominee who currently appears in
NBC’s “Parks and Recreation,” and previously starred in ABC’s “Brothers & Sisters” and NBC’s
“The West Wing.” He has also starred in feature films including “St. Elmo’s Fire,” “Wayne’s
World,” “Tommy Boy,” the “Austin Powers” movies and many others in his decades-long career.
He currently can be seen in “Behind the Candelabra,” HBO’s biopic about entertainer Liberace,
and was recently cast as President John F. Kennedy for the National Geographic Channel’s
“Killing Kennedy,” to be released later this year.
Lowe is a noted advocate for breast cancer awareness and early detection. His mother died of
breast cancer in 2003, and his grandmother and great-grandmother also died from the disease.
Rob will share his very personal story and discuss how we can all make a difference in the
battle against breast cancer.
The Go Pink Luncheon takes place October 25 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Boca Raton
Resort & Club. Tickets are priced at $150 and will go on sale August 26th. A variety of
sponsorship opportunities are now available. The Luncheon has been a sell-out for the past two
years and is South Florida’s premiere women’s health event. It is the signature event for Boca
Raton Regional Hospital Foundation’s Go Pink Challenge, a community-based initiative to raise
funds for breast cancer detection and diagnostic services provided by the Christine E. Lynn
Women’s Health & Wellness Institute. Patti Carpenter will again serve as the Luncheon
Committee Chair.
