East End Women’s Network Announces Its “Woman of the Year”
GET YOUR PINK ON!
Celebration Event May 20, 2013
Since its inception in 1981, EEWN has continued its annual tradition of honoring a local east end woman who has exhibited solid leadership responsibilities, commitment to her goals, and achievements in her professional life as well as personal character and service to her community and her colleagues.
For thirty years, Ann Cotten-DeGrasse was a devoted teacher in the Riverhead School District while also serving for five years as President of the Riverhead Central Faculty Association, representing over four hundred teachers. Twelve years after her retirement she was elected to the Riverhead Board of Education where she currently serves as the Board President overseeing a $110 million dollar budget.
In 1995 Ann had her first scare with breast cancer and another scare two years later. Both lumps proved to be benign, but that experience was enough to compel Ann, and her husband Antonio, to launch an organization to help breast cancer patient’s deal with diagnosis and treatment. Thus was born the North Fork Breast Health Coalition in 1998. Ann served as President of the North Fork Breast Health Coalition from 2005 to 2012. During that time, the Coalition raised over $500,000 for direct financial assistance to breast cancer patients on the North Fork. Under her leadership the Coalition has expanded its services to offer Support Groups, Massage Therapy, Reflexology, and Yoga.
