Heads Up: I’m Hosting the 2nd Annual Designs for the Cure Gala

Heads Up: I'm Hosting the 2nd Annual Designs for the Cure Gala

I am thrilled to announce that I will be hosting the 2nd Annual Designs for the Cure Gala this fall, which brings together influencers and fashion to raise funds for breast cancer services in Los Angeles County. These services include breast cancer screening, treatment and research. It’s a really incredible cause and I am honored to be hosting this year’s fete.

One of the reasons I was drawn to this cause is because a major focus of the Komen Los Angeles County Affiliate is to help uninsured and underinsured women and men who have symptoms of breast cancer and are facing many barriers in getting the health care they need. And I think it’s fair to say that we should all have the right to a healthy and productive life–regardless of our insurance status.

I am also excited to announce that Paper Crown will be sponsoring the gala. The event will be a “pink-tie” affair and I will be working with a group of survivors to get them dressed and feeling beautiful for the big night. Since I figured you guys might want to see what goes on behind-the-scenes leading up to the event, I will be keeping you all updated on the fittings, fashion and fun. I will also share plenty of great ways that you can help out, too, even if you won’t be there for the event.

If you are interested in attending the gala, here’s what you need to know:

When: Saturday, October 13th, 2012 at 6pm
Where: Millennium Biltmore in Downtown Los Angeles
How: For information about ticketing, click here.

Again, I am honored to be a part of this amazing event and cannot wait to share more from the road to the final fete. Stay tuned!

What cause is near and dear to your heart?

XO Lauren

    That’s great news Lauren! Really amazing.

    A cause very near and dear to my heart is Multiple Sclerosis. My mother has been suffering from the disease for four-teen years now. Needless to say it has been a struggle, but she is such an inspiration of hope and determanation. I love how strong she is in facing each day with a brave face and not letting the disease completly control her life.

    This is so awesome! I am so excited for the updates! I totally agree. Everyone has the right to a healthy lifestyle. Breast cancer awareness is near to my heart because my family has been personally affected. I love participating in the Susan G. Komen events, so I can’t wait for your updates.
