Blythe Masters was recognized at the 2010 Pink Soirée fundraiser with the Pink Ribbon Individual Award for her extensive efforts fundraising on behalf of Komen for the Cure, while JPMorgan Chase received the Pink Ribbon Corporate Award.

“Blythe Masters has been an integral part of our board and our top individual Race fundraiser for five years,” said Komen Greater NYC CEO Dara Richardson-Heron, MD. “JPMorgan Chase has been a staunch supporter of our events since 1994, and its Race team has been #1 in fundraising for five years.”

She also spoke about Komen Greater NYC’s grant program and how it was helping to underwrite breast education, screening, treatment and support services for underserved women in the New York metropolitan area — a group whose numbers has increased due to the consequences of the economic crisis: layoffs and loss of health insurance.

“On behalf of the entire JPMorgan Chase organization, we are both humbled and honored to be recognized and to have had the great pleasure of partnering with Komen Greater NYC for the past 16 years,” said Jamie Dimon, JPMorgan Chase Chairman and CEO. “I’m particularly proud of the hundreds of JPMorgan Chase employees who have supported Komen Greater NYC and its Race for the Cure, and would like to give a special thank you to Blythe Masters for championing this important work.”

Dimon further thanked Masters for her efforts, noting that “her leadership, enthusiasm and dedication have inspired many colleagues and friends to participate in this important cause. ”Like anything that Blythe takes on, her commitment is 100%,” he stated.

“Like everything that Komen Greater NYC does, the Pink Soiree event served as a beacon of help for today, and hope for tomorrow, “said Masters. “It was both inspiring and a lot of fun to attend. I am privileged to lead the board for such an important and involved group, and I am very moved by Komen Greater NYC’s on-going dedication to the community.”
