Hilary Newsom: What Breast Cancer Awareness Means to Me

The PlumpJack Group is part of a variety of philanthropic causes – we proudly continue to give to communities in need and those less fortunate. Much of our philanthropic contributions are driven by our President Hilary Newsom’s passion in raising awareness around cancer prevention and education. Our annual PlumpJack/LINK golf tournament, in honor of Hilary’s mother Tessa Newsom, benefits the Cancer Prevention Institute of California (CPIC) and has raised more than $3 million dollars.

How has your life been affected by breast cancer on a personal level?
I lost my mom, who was my best friend, to breast cancer. This was after loosing several other beloved family members to other types of cancers. I was devastated and promised my mother she would never be forgotten.

How are you involved with Breast Cancer Awareness month?
For me, there is no real breast cancer awareness month, it is ongoing, everyday that I want to bring awareness to this terrible disease. I am grateful; however, I think it’s important that there is a month that highlights awareness and the importance of raising funds and looking after your breast health.
nike air jordan flight
What do you believe to be your greatest accomplishment, in your efforts to raise awareness for breast cancer?
I hope that I am just getting started. I am very proud of the PlumpJack/LINK Golf Classic that my husband Geoff Callan and I started more than 15 years ago. The continued success of the event is owed entirely to our friends, family and co-workers who make it possible every year. We have raised more than $3.3 million dollars for the Cancer Prevention Institute of California (CPIC), where I have held a board seat for the last 16 years.

What is your favorite philanthropic effort that PlumpJack supports?
The Golf Tournament stands out because it is such a big undertaking; however, our organization is giving back to the community throughout the year, for which I am grateful.

What do you see as your main obstacles in fulfilling your mission? 

There are so many important and wonderful causes out there. I am passionate about many, but I try and stay true to my commitment to the select few I have identified as making a huge impact on people’s lives. I don’t expect everyone to have the same passions as me, but of course I like to encourage them to…

What philanthropic organizations do you admire for their work?
Anyone willing to give their time to making the world a better place is someone that I admire. There are too many to name, but it starts with the lemonade stand on the corner of your street, teaching the next generation that earning money to share with others can change the course of someone’s life. Wow, how empowering is that!

Conversations with Hilary: Donna Randall, CEO of the Cancer Prevention Institute of California

For Breast Cancer Awareness month, I sat down with newly appointed Chief Executive Officer of the Cancer Prevention Institute of California, Donna Randall. This past July she began her new role with CPIC, an organization PlumpJack has supported for the past 15 years, through our annual Golf Tournament, which has raised nearly $3 million for Cancer Research.

As former Chancellor of Michigan’s Albion College, she brings fundraising, national advocacy and financial expertise to the Bay Area Nonprofit. Dr. Randall was the first woman to serve as president of the college in its 178-year history and  has served as a board member of more than 15 corporate, community and policy organizations.

1. What do you believe to be your greatest accomplishment?
I think my greatest accomplishment is having raised a daughter with my husband, Paul. Kate is now 26 years old and is a bright, thoughtful, and kind person.

2. Do you have a prized possession?
It is a wind-up toy collection! For over 40 years, I have collected wind-up toys and probably have 300 to 400 toys. I suppose I should count them one day. The collection is fun because each toy is unique (from kangaroos that flip backwards to colorful plates of sushi that spin around). The collection never fails to amuse people…all the way from three-year old’s to ninety year old’s.

3. What qualities do you think others love about you?
I am a down-to-earth person who sees humor in most situations and who doesn’t take herself too seriously.

4. If you could do anything other than what you currently do, what would it be?
I would probably be a tour director. I have always been fascinated by different cultures and customs and enjoy travel. As a child and adult, I have lived in many different states, as well as in France, Ireland and Canada. As a tour director, I would be able to help people experience the beauty of new lands and deepen their understanding of those people who live there.

5. What do you like most about what you do for a living/career?
I am passionate about the mission of The Cancer Prevention Institute of California. Cancer will impact one in two of us during our lifetime. Our research scientists are working hard to find out who gets cancer, why, and what can we do to prevent it. While we are making good progress, there is so much more work to be done to prevent this devastating disease.

6. What’s the first thing you do when you wake up?
I have a cup of coffee and read the New York Times. The smell and warmth of coffee helps me wake up, and the newspaper gives me a glimpse into the lives of others around the world and anchors my day.

7. What’s your favorite thing to do on a Friday night?
I love to watch foreign films, especially French films. As an undergraduate, I gained fluency in French and was able to do a semester abroad in Lyon, France, as well as work for a French artist during one summer in Paris. While I no longer have fluency in French, watching French films brings back great memories!

8. What were you passionate about in your younger years growing up?
Right out of college, I worked as a white-collar crime analyst for the Iowa Bureau of Criminal Investigation. I was fascinated by the motivation of white-collar criminals. This passion led me to go to graduate school in sociology to study this form of deviance and later, as a business faculty member, to research white-collar crime.

9. What are you passionate about now?
Helping to prevent cancer. Over my lifetime, many members of my family, as many other families in the nation, have been touched by cancer. I saw the impact of cancer on their lives and on those who cared about them. I want to help create a world without cancer.

10. What’s your favorite season and why?
Definitely summer! I love the warmth of the season and the pace that comes with summer. While I like being outdoors, especially in California, I would be remiss in my job if I did not remind others that sun screen is a necessity.

11. If you were a cocktail or a drink what would it be?
Commonwealth Cocktail. This is a drink that was created just this year in celebration of the nations and territories competing in the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. The cocktail is billed as one of the most complicated as it has 71 ingredients, one from each nation that competed in the games. I like to think that I have taken a piece of every place that I have lived and every person that I’ve known and this amalgamation has created who I am today.

12. If you could have lunch with anyone, living or dead, who would it be?
Vincent Van Gogh. I am intrigued by his art, his mind and his life. I am in awe of his talent and, especially, his exquisite use of color.

13. Do you have any regrets?
I wish I learned more languages when I was younger. I learned to speak French, but I never ventured to learn other languages. Being able to speak a language opens up a door into another world. Through language one can understand more fully the culture, history, art, and customs of a people. I am tempted these days to try my hand at learning Spanish.

14. Define Freedom.
For me, freedom is most importantly the right not to live under oppressive, undemocratic forms of government.

15. What are your personal core values?
I believe in kindness and honesty in how we treat each other and an acceptance of our own limitations. I believe that each of us is here on earth to make the world a better place.
