Featured Artist Frankie Ollervidas at Forever Femme Event
Oct. 22, 2012
-- Surrounded by beautiful pink flower arrangements studded with butterflies, guests enjoyed canapés and champagne in the cool evening air in an elegant setting at the Beverly Hills Peninsual Hotel in the garden courtyard. On show were select pieces from Environmental Artist Frankie Ollervidas featuring a figure of a woman, and a separate piece from his next collection “Bleeding Earth”. Both paintings were made with tar rescued from the BP Oil Crisis in the gulf and mixed with acrylic and other mixed media a preview to the Ollervidas Mural Environmental collection showing in Los Angeles in November. Guests then continued the party at a private spectacular Bel Air Mansion House , where they enjoyed drinks provided by sponsors DAMA Tequila "The First Female Luxury Tequila created by Women for Women" and European Tatrateas Organic coconut infused tea beverages poolside. A DJ, and tented dance floor provided the late night ambience and guests danced away into the wee small hours.
One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer (National Cancer Institute). Post-breast cancer reconstructive surgery has tremendous impact in restoring a woman’s positive self-image and well being, but research reveals that 70% of women - who would have opted for reconstruction -still do not know their options. Harvard trained board certified plastic surgeon and Founder & CEO of RESTORE, Dr. Michael K. Obeng, seeks to help these patients through a unique initiative. Forever Femme is an extension of Breast Reconstruction Day (BRA-Day), in partnership with the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). 50% of the funds raised by Forever Femme will be applied to the Plastic Surgeons Breast Reconstruction Awareness Fund (501 c 3) to raise awareness about their reconstruction options, and the remainder will stay in our own community to help women in need of expenses for insurance deductibles and household expenses during their post-reconstruction recovery period.
