When: March 9, 2023

Where:  Columbia Country Club

Chevy Chase, MD 20815

Fashion Show Provided by: J. McLaughlin

The Daffodils & Diamonds Luncheon was founded by Bethesda’s Alice-Anne Birch in honor of her mother and sister, both of whom succumbed to the disease. The luncheon is held to raise funds for National Foundation for Cancer Research, specifically for breast and ovarian cancers.

The Daffodils & Diamonds Committee is a group of strong and accomplished women who have resolved to move forward together in the fight against cancer. Thanks to their hard work and generosity, hundreds of thousands of life-saving research dollars have been generated for NFCR’s advanced cancer research.

WJLA-TV 7 Anchor Alison Starling, a strong supporter, will once again emcee the event.
