About Lombardi Women
Lombardi Women celebrates the power of Connecting for a Cure
What began as a small group of women committed to finding a breast cancer cure has become one of the largest, most sought-after events for Washington’s top influential women business leaders: Women & Wine. Over the past fifteen years, we have grown to more than 750 women strong and have raised close to $4 million dollars. Now, Women & Wine has become Lombardi Women, honoring our fierce dedication to supporting miracle-making research at Georgetown Lombardi – and the heroic women they treat.
Lombardi Women benefits Georgetown Lombardi’s Nina Hyde Center for Breast Cancer Research. At Nina Hyde, dedicated scientists and physicians uncover the biological basis of breast cancer, and work toward its prevention and cure.
