Pontiac, MI - /PRNewswire/ -- In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the 8th annual Uncork for a Cure celebration is happening Saturday, November 4th at M1 Concourse in Pontiac.

Now in its 8th year, Metro Detroit's premier breast cancer fundraiser will feature award-winning chefs, world-class wines, music, art installations, Ferrari track rides hosted by Cauley Ferrari, live and silent auction and more.
This year, The Dynami Foundation is also hosting the sold-out Uncork Up North at the Hagerty Garage in Traverse City (October 11th) and Neiman Marcus Troy will host a sold-out Art & Fashion Show Luncheon (October 19th). This trio of events aims to meet a cumulative goal of $3 million raised over eight years for Invasive Lobular Carcinoma (ILC) research while also supporting local women in financial need.
On November 4th, the 8th Annual Uncork for a Cure celebration will return to M1 Concourse for an evening showcasing the city's best culinary talent and award-winning wines curated by nationally renowned and locally beloved Master Sommelier Madeline Triffon of Plum Market alongside sommeliers and wine professionals.

To date, the event has raised over $2,000,000. The Dynami Foundation continues to advance the fight against breast cancer, specifically Lobular breast cancer research, which accounts for 15% of all breast cancers yet only 1% of research funding is directed to this common subtype.
The foundation has funded twelve research projects while also funding grants to almost twenty Metro Detroit women in need through the partnership with the Jennie Bicknell Memorial Fund.
"This year marks my 11th year being breast cancer free and I'm even more energized to help local women in need through Uncork for a Cure. I'm so thankful for our partners, chefs, artists, and supporters who have helped us along our journey these past 8 years and looking forward to not only an incredible Uncork celebration but adding two fabulous events to this year's line-up." says founder Flora Migyanka.
