MANHATTAN, New York (WABC) -- The Basser Center held its "Basser Jean Bash" Tuesday night in Manhattan.
People attending were told to wear their most stylish denim because it was an event about your "genes."
This is the 10th year for the fundraiser which helps to raise money to find a cure for BRCA-related cancers.
Eyewitness News reporter Stacey Sager has been a member of the organization for years.
Sager spoke to their featured speaker, tennis legend Chris Evert.
