GAL APPROVED! Get Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month!By The DivaGals | October 17, 2015 | Gal Approved
It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and the DivaGals are getting in on the celebration! There are more than 2.8 million breast cancer survivors thanks to the strides being made in research and support. That is reason to celebrate!
SUPPORT. Our resident Health Diva, Dr. Janna Andrews, is hosting the Kicked It In Heels 4th Annual Fundraiser on Thursday, Oct. 22! This year’s theme is embracing diversity as the group honors Byron Kirkland, a male breast cancer survivor; and Grace Paeck, a young woman diagnosed with breast cancer in her 20s. MC Lyte – the iconic lyricist, DJ, inspirational speaker and hip-hop pioneer, will graciously host and spin for the event. The celebration is at New York City’s Tao Lounge Downtown from 7-10 pm and will include an open bar and passed hors d’oeuvres. All proceeds raised during the 2015 Kicked It In Heels Benefit will support our mission, which is to further the end of health care disparities in breast cancer by focusing on breast cancer survivors, specifically women of color and young women. Get your ticket now!
SUPPORT TOO. On Sunday, Oct. 25th, Butterfly Studio Salon in New York City is hosting their 5th partnership Beauty & Brunch with Breast Treatment Task Force, a non-profit, grassroots organization that facilitates free breast screening and education, diagnostic follow-up, and treatment for NYC patients without health insurance. Book a favorite Butterfly service and enjoy a fun-filled day of complimentary cocktails, brunch, caricature portraits and more, and 100 percent of services’ proceeds will be donated to local women battling breast cancer.
PEARL. Why not take a break from the big and little screens in your life. Learn to knit and create cool hats, scarves and sweaters that you can keep or give as gifts. Our friends at We Are Knitters have all the tools and the best wools to get you started. If you select the Kit of the Divas, the solidarity Diva Beanie, We are Knitters donates 10 percent of the proceeds of the Diva Beanie to breast cancer research via the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Their objective is to help and inspire hope in those who are affected by breast cancer through early detection.
