Dress your finest for this black-tie gala benefiting those who live with metastatic breast cancer. It will be an evening filled with great food, elegant entertainment and fabulous auction items. Above all else, it will be an evening of hope.

The Metsquerade is coming to Southwest Florida for the first time. This elegant gala at the Hilton Naples will feature a cocktail hour followed by a three-course meal and after-dinner dancing. Dr. Andrew Lipman of Florida Cancer Specialists will be the guest speaker.

Event Chair Karin Petrocelli, a Bella Terra resident, was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer (MBC) five years ago and has beaten the odds on longevity. But her days are filled with endless treatments, medical procedures…and fear. There is no cure for stage four breast cancer, and 113 women and men die each day from MBC. Petrocelli has decided to use the time she has left to advocate and fundraise for METAvivor, an organization funding research with hopes of making MBC a manageable disease instead of a death sentence.

METAvivor is the only organization that solely funds MBC research, allocating 100 percent of donations to grants for Stage IV breast cancer research. Thanks to fundraisers like the Metsquerade, METAvivor was able to award $1.65 million in grants for metastatic breast cancer research in 2017.
