Feel Beautiful Today(FBT)announces its third annual Fighting Cancer with Hope Spring Fashion Show to benefit cancer patients and survivors in Georgia.
Atlanta, GA (OPENPRESS) The Feel Beautiful Today organization (FBT), a 501(c)(3) created in 2010 with the mission of providing love, hope and encouragement to women and girls affected by cancer, through Arts in Health programs, announces its third annual Fighting Cancer with Hope Spring Fashion Show to benefit cancer patients and survivors in Georgia.
The Fighting Cancer with Hope Spring Fashion Show and luncheon will be held at the Metropolitan Club in Alpharetta Wednesday, April 18th from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Dillard's will once again provide the latest Spring fashions and the extraordinary models will be 15 cancer patients and survivors from right here in Georgia. The attendees will be treated to an unforgettable fashion show, seated lunch, silent auction, and live music. New this year is a photographic narrative exhibit "The Warrior Within", highlighting the courageous stories of the models. There will also be 40 cancer patients in attendance thanks to generously sponsored tickets. Tickets are $40 per seat and table and event sponsorship levels are also available.
More than 90% of the proceeds, including sales from the silent auction, will enable FBT to continue providing its award-winning Arts in Health programs to cancer patients and survivors free of charge at its 15 beneficiaries-in-kind hospitals and cancer centers in Georgia. These programs are designed to provide patients with an art project, prior to or during treatment, that enables them to take their minds off their current situation. Patients claim that it reduces their anxiety and pain. Hospitals and treatment centers understand the positive impact of these programs but don't always have the budget or resources to provide them, and this is where FBT fulfills its mission of delivering Arts in Health programs free of charge to cancer patients and survivors at cancer centers and hospitals.
"We are so grateful that the Metropolitan Club and Dillard's have decided to partner with us again to provide this wonderful platform that celebrates the courage and power that these women demonstrate daily in their fights against this terrible disease", said Biviana Franco, FBT's Executive Director. "We are privileged to witness it at our events and it is humbling to see the reaction of the attendees, of our annual fashion show, as they meet these beautiful women and learn about their stories", added Franco.
