Houlihan Lawrence Volunteers Raised $106,000 at 24th Annual Breast Cancer Walk PDF Print Email


By Dean Bender, Thompson & Bender for Houlihan Lawrence

Nov. 15, 2017: More than 100 walkers and enthusiastic members of the Houlihan Lawrence family raised $106,000 on October 15 as part of the 24th annual American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk at Manhattanville College in Purchase, NY.

All eighteen of the Houlihan Lawrence offices in Westchester participated in the October 15 fundraising walk to increase awareness about breast cancer and raise much-needed funds for innovative research.

“I want to say a big thank-you to everyone who made this year so successful,” said Houlihan Lawrence senior vice president Debra Dalton, who has been leading Houlihan Lawrence’s ambitious fundraising efforts for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk for the past 20 years. “I’m not sure how you do it, but clearly we all have a passion for this annual fundraiser each year. We are so proud to be a part of this walk every October and to do what we can to win the fight against breast cancer.” 

Next year, Dalton is passing the fundraising baton to Houlihan Lawrence art director Liz Battista, who is a breast cancer survivor. “I chose Liz because she is a survivor, and this will be a way of giving back,” Dalton said.

Apart from skin cancers, breast cancer is the most common cancer type in women. This year, an estimated 252,710 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in American women, along with 63,410 new cases of non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer.

For 2017, it’s estimated that about 30% of newly diagnosed cancers in women will be breast cancer. About 40,610 women in the U.S. are expected to die from breast cancer in 2017; the good news is that death rates have been decreasing since 1989. Women under the age of 50 have experienced larger decreases. These decreases in death rates are thought to be the result of increased awareness, treatment advances, and earlier detection through screening. For more information, visit

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville is a quaint village (one square mile) located just 16 miles north of midtown Manhattan (roughly 30 minutes on the train) and has a population of approximately 6,500. It is known as a premier community with an excellent public school (K-12) and easy access to Manhattan. Bronxville offers many amenities including an attractive business district, a hospital (Lawrence Hospital), public paddle and tennis courts, fine dining at local restaurants, two private country clubs and a community library.

While the earliest settlers of Bronxville date back to the first half of the 18th century, the history of the modern suburb of Bronxville began in 1890 when William Van Duzer Lawrence purchased a farm and commissioned the architect, William A. Bates, to design a planned community of houses for well-known artists and professionals that became a thriving art colony. This community, now called Lawrence Park, is listed on the National register of Historic Places and many of the homes still have artists’ studios. A neighborhood association within Lawrence Park called “The Hilltop Association” keeps this heritage alive with art shows and other events for neighbors.

Bronxville offers many charming neighborhoods as well as a variety of living options for residents including single family homes, town houses, cooperatives and condominiums. One of the chief benefits of living in “the village” is that your children can attend the Bronxville School.

The Bronxville postal zone (10708, known as “Bronxville PO”) includes the village of Bronxville as well as the Chester Heights section of Eastchester, parts of Tuckahoe and the Lawrence Park West, Cedar Knolls, Armour Villa and Longvale sections of Yonkers. Many of these areas have their own distinct character. For instance, the Armour Villa section has many historic homes and even has its own newsletter called “The Villa Voice” which reports on neighborhood news.
