Yaffa Beauty by Rica Hosts Breast Cancer Awareness Event Sunday, October 29 in Norwalk, CT
Into The Pink: A Halloween Soirée Celebrating Hope to be held at Pinot's Palette at The Waypointe
Supporters include Yaffa Beauty by Rica, Pinot's Palette - Metro, Manic Panic, the Manipura Dance Collective, Doorbell Salons, and many, many more!
Rica Mendes, owner of Yaffa Beauty by Rica, is a breast cancer survivor as well as a LIVESTRONG Leader, raising funds and awareness for cancer for almost 10 years. Prior to her own diagnosis, Mendes fundraised for LIVESTRONG, as inspired by family members and friends that had fought cancer. After she was diagnosed, Mendes says, "I was inspired by Lance Armstrong's message from his doctor of the 'Obligation of the Cure.' It's the notion that once you have made it through treatment, and are a survivor, that you owe it to others fighting cancer, and their loved ones, to do what you can to make it better. So, whether it be by fundraising, speaking, educating, or advocating, I do what I can how I can to make life better for cancer survivors."
Entertainment for the evening will include bellydancers from the Manipura Dance Collective, hair and makeup models prepared by local hairstylists and makeup artists, including artists from Manic Panic, walking a runway, a silent auction and raffle, and more surprises.
