Miller, president of Miller Nissan on Kings Highway, will receive the breast-care center's Rose of Hope Award during the luncheon, the Fairfiled-based center announced. The award recognizes the charitable work of an individual or organization.
The Rose of Hope Luncheon is one of the center's largest annual fundraisers and typically is attended by more than 500 men and women, the center said in a news release. Next month's event is planned on the grounds of the Greenfield Hill home of Patti and Tom Keegan.
Tickets are $350 and may be obtained by calling the Pfriem Breast Care Center center at 203-255-5300.
The free-standing center is the first of its type in the state and has provided services for more than a decade to women battling breast cancer.
Proceeds from the luncheon will benefit programs for women who are uninsured and/or need financial assistance, the center said. Programs for women in need serve 1,000 patients annually.
The luncheon's keynote speakers will be television personalities Giuliana Rancic and her husband Bill Rancic. Giuliana, a breast cancer survivor, is co-anchor of the E! Network's E! News. Her husband is an entrepreneur and motivational speaker who was the first contestant on the NBC reality series "The Apprentice" to be hired by Donald Trump.
