I’m sure that all of us have been affected by breast cancer in some way or another. This Saturday (June 12, 2010), I will be walking in the fashion show to help raise money for breast cancer. Tickets are $15 in advance, or $20 at the door and include light snacks, event program, and swag bag. The fun starts at 11 am, so make sure you’re on time! The fashion show is being held at the Sterling Hotel on H Street in Sacramento. There’s also going to be a silent auction and a raffle every 15 minutes in addition to the fashion show. I’m sure it’s going to be a fun event and hopefully we’ll raise a lot of money for the cause. I hope to see you all there! Now here’s a special message from Dortha, the woman behind this event:
Dear ChiqueChic Readers,
I recently lost a good friend and Avon colleague to cancer. Laney was a very special person and I dearly miss her. To honor her memory and raise funds for cancer research, I have committed to walk in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. In July, I will be walking 26 miles on a Saturday, spending the night in a tent, and walking 13 miles on Sunday. I am committed to raising $1,800 for Cancer research. This will only be possible with your support.
To make a donation, please visit my Web page: http://www.avonwalk.org/goto/DorthaHise. There is no donation too small, every bit counts, and of course, all donations are tax deductible. If you prefer, you can write a check payable to “Avon Walk for Breast Cancer” (Please send it to: Avon Foundation, PO Box 742509, Cincinnati, OH 45274-2509 and please include my walker participant number in the memo line of your check: 561584).
Since 1992, the Avon Foundation Breast Cancer Crusade has raised and awarded more than $525 million dollars to the cause. The money is used for education, clinical care, early detection programs and support services. Visit www.avonwalk.org for more information.
Please join me in raising money to help find the cause and cure for this deadly disease.
