Event Proceeds to Support Breast Cancer Research and Prevention

Transmarine Navigation Corporation – a leading U.S. tramp ship agency with offices in a dozen port cities along the Gulf Coast, West Coast, and Hawaii – recently sponsored a “Happy Hour Headshot” event hosted by Businesswomen in Petroleum (BIP).

The fundraising event took place May 1 at McIntyre’s Downtown, a premiere event facility located in the heart of the Market Square District in Houston, Texas.

Funds raised by the event were donated to BIP’s two partner organizations, MD Anderson’s Moon Shot and The Rose Southeast, both working to combat breast cancer in the Houston area.

“We’re honored to sponsor such an important event,” said Leslie Clements, Transmarine’s Managing Director. “We’ll always look for ways to support BIP’s efforts to raise breast care awareness and provide much-needed resources for women’s health issues.”

The Moon Shots Program® tackles cancer in three ways: innovation, scale and collaboration. These are methods which work stronger together. MD Anderson has one of the largest patient bases and uses 10 research platforms to find patterns, evaluate treatments and predict outcomes. We work for results — preventive education, first-of-a-kind clinical trials and personalized surgeries are just a few. Finally, the Moon Shots Program brings experts together in exciting and effective ways. When we invite participation and apply interdisciplinary learnings and tools, we get even closer to ending cancer. 

Since its launch in 1986, The Rose Breast Center of Excellence has served nearly 800,000 patients and is now the leading nonprofit breast health care organization in southeast Texas. Our board-certified radiologists, specialized technical staff, five Mammography Coaches, and Diagnostic Imaging Centers give access to treatment to more than 40,000 women annually.
