Mondays at Racine Cancer Care Foundation hosts annual fundrasier
Mondays at Racine Cancer Care Foundation will once again host their annual fundraiser, The Long Island Beauty Ball (LIBB) on Monday, Oct. 30, at Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury. Now in its 13th year, Mondays at Racine Cancer Care Foundation’s primary mission is to reduce the physical, emotional and cosmetic side effects of chemotherapy and radiation by providing free in-salon beauty and wellness services.
The event, which is presented by Paramount Beauty and New York Cancer & Blood Specialists, will feature a night full of interactive experiences, entertainment and education to raise awareness about cancer care in New York.
“Seeing leaders in the health and beauty industries, along with business owners across Long Island, 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.”
Last year’s event had 900 attendees and raised $230,000. Proceeds from the event enable Mondays at Racine to continue to maintain and grow their Charter Salon program, all in support of the overall mission to reduce the physical, emotional and cosmetic side effects of chemotherapy and radiation. In addition, many major local and national companies have already signed up to sponsor this years Long Island Beauty Ball including Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology, Whole Foods, Northwell Health and many more.
In honor of this spooky time of year, Mondays’ Charter Salon family will come prepared with their brushes and best artists to create some of the most scare-tastic Halloween hair and make-up masterpieces. As the models mingle throughout the night, guests will not only have the opportunity to vote on their favorite designs, they’ll be able to try some for themselves.
LIBB Salutes to Nurses honors Long Island nurses who dedicate themselves to caring for others. Throughout the night there will be special areas for nurses to be pampered and to experience what it feels like to be taken care of.
