Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, Calif. was abuzz last night as the stars gathered to support the fight against breast cancer. Jaimie Alexander, Kellan Lutz, Jessica Roffey, Sophia Bush, and Emmanuelle Chriqui (pictured above) were joined by Amber Valetta, Alessandra Ambrosio, Adrian Grenier, Busy Philipps, Jordana Brewster, and more at the Pathway to the Cures for Breast Cancer: A Fundraiser Benefiting Susan G. Komen event. Presented by Relativity Media and Pathway Genomics, the evening raised funds to provide affordable hereditary breast cancer testing and to eradicate the disease. During the party, Pathway announced their plans to donate $10 million in BRCA genetic tests for women who can’t afford the test.
“It’s nice to come out in support of such an important initiative. The fact that 1 in 8 women is affected by breast cancer in their life is not an acceptable statistic,” Bush tells InStyle. “When companies choose to be proactive I’m just incredibly grateful because they’re going to save lives.” Chriqui also expressed the significance of showing up for the event. “Susan G. Komen has done so much for breast cancer awareness, so you never need to twist my arm to come and support their cause,” the actress says.
