Mondays at Racine Cancer Care Foundation will once again host their annual fundraiser, The Long Island Beauty Ball, on Monday, Sept. 26, at Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury. The event, which is sponsored by North Shore Hematology Oncology, will feature the health, wellness and beauty industries coming together to educate and elevate cancer care in New York.
“To see leaders in the health and beauty industries come together at The Long Island Beauty Ball in support of elevating cancer care confirms that we are on the right path in creating great change in how we take care of people going through this devastating disease,” said Karla Waldron, executive director of Mondays at Racine. “This event has captured the essence of the Mondays at Racine mission and gives us the ability to provide these essential programs to more communities throughout Long Island and New York.”
Guests at the Beauty Ball will be treated to a variety of interactive experiences including makeup applications, braid bars, massage stations and yoga demonstrations. New to this year’s event is a $250 VIP ticket that allows access to one of three gallery readings with renowned psychic mediums Laura Lynn Jackson, Bobbi Allison and Kim Russo.
Last year’s inaugural event had 700 attendees and raised $175,000. Proceeds from the event enabled Mondays at Racine to train six additional charter salons and certify 55 new service providers, all in support of the overall mission to reduce the physical, emotional and cosmetic side effects of chemotherapy and radiation.
