“FASHION FIGHTS: Breast Cancer” raises funds for Breast Cancer research
Emily Bathgate is hosting “FASHION FIGHTS: Breast Cancer” on Friday, October 15th at Skatt salon in Mt Hawthorn (165 Scarborough Beach Road, Mt Hawthorn) in order to raise both awareness and funds for breast cancer research.
Prompted by both her and her friends’ involvement in breast cancer suffering via family history, Emily decided that it was time for fashion, her one true passion, to work to make a difference.
The time has come to match fashionable threads with a great cause!
This wonderful evening of fashion will feature fifteen of WA’s best emerging and established designers, including Belle Bijoux, Bernice Sara Swim & Resort, Poppy Lissiman and On Tour.
Ticket holders will be entertained by not only the parade, but by the silent auction, gourmet canapés, and free-flowing drinks. They will also gain free entry to the official and sponsored after party at Gold Bar, in Subiaco.
The National Breast Cancer Foundation is the leading national not-for-profit organisation that is dedicated to supporting and promoting high quality research into the prevention, detection and treatment of breast cancer.
The Foundation is committed to funding high quality research responsive to the needs and interests of women affected by breast cancer. Since being established in 1994, the Foundation has awarded more than $67,350,035 to 256 breast cancer projects across Australia.
Breast cancer is one of the most commonly occurring cancers in Australian women, with 13,600 new cases expected to be diagnosed this year. But thanks to excellent research, deaths from the disease have been decreased by 22% in the last decade, with more women knowing the benefits of early detection and an increase in treatment options.
The contribution from activities such as “FASHION FIGHTS: Breast Cancer” will help ensure that the NBCF can keep working towards a cure. We encourage you to support this initiative and help to make a real difference to the many lives touched by breast cancer.
