    LUNCHEON CHAIR

    Gigi Hill Lancaster

    Gigi Lancaster

    Gigi Hill Lancaster’s ties to Susan G. Komen began early. At age 14 Gigi lost her mother, Gigi Griffiths Hill, to breast cancer. Mere weeks before her death, her mother received one of the first Betty Ford Awards from Susan G. Komen, for the positive spirit and courageous attitude she exemplified after being diagnosed.

    Gigi has been involved in community service her entire life, focusing on causes near to her heart. She conceived the idea for Cocktails for a Cause for Planned Parenthood, and has been involved in the Cattle Baron’s Ball and TACA. Gigi has served on the Board of Visitors at The Hockaday School as well as on the boards for Girls Inc. and Planned Parenthood, where she was named Volunteer of the Year. She currently serves on the Highland Park Education Foundation Board, and has been a neighborhood outreach “good shepherd” for St. Michael and All Angels for many years. Gigi is an alumnae member of Pi Beta Phi and volunteers regularly at her children’s schools.

    Gigi has worked in the linen industry for 17 years. She was educated at The Hockaday School in Dallas, and holds a B.A. from the University of Texas. Gigi and her husband and their three children reside in Dallas. She enjoys cooking, reading, and outdoor activities – look for her on the tennis court or out walking her dogs!

    Speaker


    We are excited to share with you that our Luncheon Speaker will be New York Times best-selling author and the winner of the Fan Favorite award at the 2014 Daytime Emmy Awards, and 5 year breast cancer survivor, Giuliana Rancic.

    GuilianaRancicSpeakerAs you know, Giuliana is an entertainment journalist, author, fashion and beauty expert and television personality. She is the co-star of E!’s hugely popular Fashion Police team, host of Beyond Candid with Giuliana and has been on the red carpet for every megaevent in the entertainment industry (Oscars, Grammy Awards, Golden Globes) interviewing the stars and getting breaking Hollywood scoop as well as all things pop culture.

    Rancic is a force both on-camera and off but her remarkable success didn’t come easily. She is a true result of “The American Dream” and an inspiration to people, both young and old. She was born in Naples, Italy, in a modest neighborhood, and moved to the United States when she was a little girl. Her love affair with television journalism began before she could even speak English – her parents couldn’t afford a tutor, so she learned the language by watching TV. She received a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Maryland and a master’s degree in journalism from American University. While in attendance, Giuliana worked for a Capitol Hill news bureau covering a number of stories related to the Pentagon, Supreme Court, White House and State Department. She lives in Los Angeles and Chicago with her husband, Bill and their five-year-old son, Duke.
