Micki Hirsch's warmth and vitality are qualities that you desire in a friend and what the Friends want in a Board member. She learned about Dana-Farber from her childhood friend, Board member Suzanne Bloomberg. They co-chaired the auction at the 25th Anniversary Gala.
For the past four years, Micki chaired the Saks event, Key to the Cure. Always one who readily assumes responsibility, she has served on the committees for the Pops evening, Friends' cookbook and P.A.R.T., as well as helping in the Friends' Gift Shop. She was vice president of fundraising for two years and has served on the Nominating Committee for the last two years.
She is on the Executive Board of The Boston Chapter of The National Museum of Women in The Arts. Micki and her husband Steven have three children. Despite her many activities, she finds time for gardening at their Cape house in the summer, cooking, reading, golfing and traveling, especially snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.
Micki says, "Volunteering at Dana-Farber is so enriching and rewarding. I am always so impressed by the doctors that I meet and all the workers and volunteers who do so much at this terrific Institute. It is wonderful to work with such a diverse group of people who all want to make a difference. I feel honored to be a part of The Friends' Board."
