Celebrate The 3rd Annual "Remarkable Woman" luncheon

Farmington Hills, MI - In January of 1999, the "Remarkable Woman" radio program began airing on Sunday mornings, on WNIC 100.3 FM. The show is designed to expose Metro-Detroit, and more recently in other syndicated areas, to a wide variety of women whose lives have truly made a difference through their personal and public lives.

On Monday, May 13, 2002, from 11 am until 2 pm, Florine Mark will host the Third Annual "Remarkable Women" luncheon. The luncheon will be held at the International Marketplace & Banquet Center, in downtown Detroit. Florine Mark, the President & CEO of Weight Watchers, is also the host of the Remarkable Woman radio program.

"The luncheon provides a wonderful opportunity for the people in our community to give back, as all net-profits from ticket sales and sponsorships will benefit women's cancer treatment and research at the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute and The University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center," says Ms. Mark. "Someday soon I hope we won't need to hold a luncheon, and this terrible disease is eradicated."

Special guest speakers at this years event include: Michigan Senator Debbie Stabenow, WDIV Channel 4 Anchor, Ruth Spencer, WJBK Fox 2 Detroit Weekend Anchor Sandra Ali, CBS Channel 62 Anchor Amyre Makupson, and WNIC Breakfast Club Executive Producer Lisa Jesswein, who will share their stories on women's issues. Along with, spotlighting some Remarkable Women and their motivational stories of success.

The goal this year is to host 500 people at the luncheon. Tickets are $50 per person and include a "health conscious" lunch with the presentation.
