SISTERS FOR THE CURE
The Billy Sims Foundation and Billy Sims BBQ are sponsored lunch for 150 attendees at the 2018 Susan G. Komen Sisters for the Cure event. “Creating awareness, education and outreach of breast cancer within the African American community is critical to saving lives and ultimately finding a cure,” said Jeff Jackson, founder and CEO of Legendary Q Brands, parent company for Billy Sims BBQ restaurants and overseer of the Billy Sims Foundation. “It is our privilege to provide lunch for attendees of this event to play a small part in helping Susan G. Komen educate African American women in the Tulsa Community.” Susan G. Komen’s Second Annual Sisters for the Cure was held on Friday, March 2, 2018 at the Tulsa Dream Center.
Working to overcome the racial disparities among African Americans in breast health, the Sisters for the Cure event aims at providing a platform for educating and empowering the African American community in Tulsa and surrounding counties. The event was free for attendees owing to the sponsorship of key organizations such as the Billy Sims Foundation.
