On October 5th, we will be having our third annual charity fashion show benefiting The Donna Foundation.
Every day in our community, a mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend learn they have breast cancer. Their thoughts become about surviving the journey they will now travel to heal physically and emotionally. Unfortunately for some women, their focus becomes “how will I survive financially”? This was what inspired First Coast news anchor and three time breast cancer survivor, Donna Deegan, who so graciously shared her own personal struggle publicly. Donna has brought such awareness in our community to this disease and celebrated many accomplishments with The Donna Foundation. All the money raised stays right here in our local community to assist those women with breast cancer with their most critical needs. . Now in our 9th year, the Foundation has assisted over 5,000 women and raised over $2,000,000.00.
The Donna Foundation has partnered again this year with Parkway Plastic Surgery to host the 3rd annual “An Evening on the Pink Carpet” to be held at the Florida Theatre on Friday evening October 5, 2012. Dr. Rebecca Glasser of Parkway Plastic Surgery has once again invited her patients who have undergone breast reconstruction after mastectomy to model fashions from various local stores and boutiques. Donna Deegan will also be on stage and modeling at the event. If you have not attended the fashion show event in past years, you missed a great event! This was a very emotional and uplifting event as it gave a group of women a chance to express themselves onstage and redefine themselves as someone other than a breast cancer survivor. The past shows have been such a tremendous success with both men and women attending.
The success of this year’s event will be credited largely to our sponsors and contributors. By participating as a sponsor, your organization will lend its name and financial support to the event and so appropriately in October during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We have several levels of sponsorship packages as outlined. You can select the level of participation that best meets your needs, and be secure in the knowledge that your sponsorship fee will be used to help The Donna Foundation continue its mission of “Caring for Women Living with Breast Cancer”.
