Apres Lounge To Support Breast Cancer Research With Sunday’s Pink Prom
NEW ORLEANS – Apres Lounge will raise money for breast cancer research this Sunday, October 25, 2015, at its Pink Prom, a costume-themed fundraiser for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
On Sunday evening, at 7:00 p.m., Apres Lounge, 608 Fulton St., will accept $10 entries to the event. All sales of the popular pink rose and the entry fees will be donated to the Foundation as well.
The event is being co-sponsored by the Aveda Institute, which is owned by Estee Lauder – herself a breast cancer survivor.
"We're very pleased to support this worthwhile cause," said Shane Songy, owner of Apres Lounge. "Breast cancer doesn't just affect the women who battle it, but the families of countless thousands in Louisiana. What we can do, we should do, and Apres is a proud partner in this fight for women's health and cancer research."
According to the American Cancer Society, there are 2.8 million breast cancer survivors, including those still fighting the disease.
"We're always proud to work with Apres Lounge, but we're even more happy to support this important effort," said Ray Sutherlin, vice president of James Hartman & Associates, which exclusively handles Apres' marketing and community outreach. "Advancing breast cancer research and supporting patients and survivors is a cause we should all undertake with determination."
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is a registered non-profit, and all donations are tax-deductible.
