Think Pink! Shop For Breast Cancer Event, SF
I am excited and proud to be hosting a very special event for a very good cause on July 7th in the lovely city of San Francisco-- Shop For Breast Cancer, where I will be previewing my Fall '09 collection: Concrete Jungle and holding a sample sale where a portion of all proceeds will be donated to an amazing organization: The Breast Cancer Fund. Their message is important-- prevention through awareness and education: "In response to the public health crisis of breast cancer, the Breast Cancer Fund identifies – and advocates for elimination of – the environmental and other preventable causes of the disease. No more than 10 percent of breast cancers are genetic, and science increasingly points to toxic chemicals and radiation as factors in the sharp rise of breast cancer incidence. Through public education, policy initiatives, outdoor challenges and other innovative campaigns, the Breast Cancer Fund mobilizes the public to secure the changes needed to stop this devastating epidemic". Please visit their website to learn more about what they are doing to put an end to breast cancer and to get involved. On a personal note, I lost my wonderful Aunt Ade last year to this disease. I am doing this for her and for everyone that has been and will be affected by it. Every little bit helps!!
