Every now and again I am incredibly moved by the efforts of our membership. This is one of those examples. Local business women, Earleen Bennett, has founded a new organization named Beauty Through Cancer. The group provides therapy and social opportunities for cancer patients and survivors. Earleen also provides, what I would call, self esteem assistance in the form of permanent makeup and wigs.
They are celebrating Breast Cancer Awareness Month on Oct 1st. Here are the details.
What better way to kick off Breast Cancer Awareness Month than to introduce Beauty Through Cancer to the City of Asheville.
Join members of our organization, Board of Directors and volunteers as well as Mayor Terry Bellamy and other City Officials as we celebrate "Beauty Through Cancer" day in Asheville.
The day will begin with businesses from all over the Western North Carolina Area donating a pledged amount of at least $1 for every customer, client, or patient they serve on October 1st to Beauty Through Cancer. You can see a list of businesses on our website that are generously supporting Beauty Through Cancer on this important day. "You could be one" !!!!!!
The day will culminate in our Grand Opening - Chamber of Commerce Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and party from 5 - 7 p.m. at our office located at 131 McDowell St Suite 202 Asheville, NC
Enjoy food by Chef in Motion, Wine by WineStyles, beer, door prizes, raffle prizes, music and fun as you mingle with elected officials, community leaders, business professionals and the community at large. Meet our volunteers, board of directors and hear inspiring stories of cancer battles and survivorship! We look forward to meeting you and getting to know you.
