This event will be a community endeavor to support the women of Western North Carolina in their battle against cancer. There's an exciting line-up for Here’s Hope. Belk will provide the fashionable apparel and makeup for the models. Belk Carmen! Carmen! Salon and Spa will style the models’ hair. “Our Models had so much fun last year. We can’t wait to offer more survivors from our community a chance to be pampered and celebrated in our event,” stated Laws.

The Hope Chest for Women gives over $30,000 annually to assist between 125-150 new clients with breast or gynecological cancer. Since 2003, The Hope Chest for Women has awarded over $225,000 in assistance and helped an estimated 1125 women in the WNC community. The organization was founded to relieve the burden created by the cost of breast or gynecological cancer treatment. All money raised through assistance programs will stay here in our WNC communities.

“It’s truly a blessing to know that people donate to something like this to help others. It’s a wonderful gift for those of us who are faced with these tough choices in this situation,” one client said.
