Pi Sigma Epsilon has held an annual Date Auction for the past 10 years on campus at Miami University. During this popular event, students and faculty from Miami University are auctioned off in order to raise funds and benefit the Karen Wellington Foundation. This year, Date Auction will take place on November 18, 2014 from 8:30 to 11:00pm at Side Bar.  

The Karen Wellington Foundation for LIVING with Breast Cancer was established in 2007 in the memory of Karen Wellington. Karen inspired so many people in the way that she continued to live her life during her ten year battle with breast cancer.  Even after her diagnosis at age 30, Karen continued to live her life to the fullest every day. 

To carry on her legacy, the Foundation honors women and families LIVING with breast cancer by sending them on vacations, relaxing spa days with a friend, lunch or nights out on the town.  We know there is a cure out there somewhere, but in the meantime, the Foundation gives women something fun to look forward to, often amid a calendar filled with doctor appointments, chemo treatments and surgeries.

The Foundation reminds everyone how important it is to take time to really appreciate LIVING. To learn more about the Karen Wellington Foundation, please visit www.karenwellingtonfoundation.org/
