Get ready to Strut Your Stuff for Cancer at the Falls Shopping Center in early fall.
The Cancer Support Community Greater Miami, along with Liga Contra el Cancer and the Sandy B. Muller Breast Cancer Foundation, will take part in a fundraising initiative at The Falls on Thursday, Oct. 6, called Strut your Stuff for Cancer.
Created by The Falls and presented by the Baptist Health Breast Center, this fashionoriented event coincides with Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The evening will begin with a leisurely “strut” around The Falls as ticket holders, decked out in their favorite heels, will be treated to “rejuvenating” stops hosted by Falls retailers where guests will receive special gifts and services. The strut will end back in Center Court where guests will be treated to a fashion experience as The Falls presents a “style trend” show featuring cancer survivors and those “angels” that have helped them heal.
Additionally, the event will feature health presentations, live entertainment and a cocktail hour with delectable treats. Guests also will receive a gift bag with The Falls October Savings Book, giveaways and a chance to register to win a fabulous trip and other great prizes.
The Falls will “Go Pink” all month in recognition of this special evening and actively market, advertise and promote the participating charities throughout the mall in a comprehensive public relations media blitz.
Strut your Stuff for Cancer is a “turn-key” event offered to a small, select group of organizations to raise awareness and money for cancer education and support. Registration is $25 per person and takes place on each of the participating charity’s websites or at their host table the night of the event. All money will go to the donor’s charity of choice; for example when our supporters purchase a ticket for $25 on our website, the entire $25 goes to supporting our free cancer programs for patients and families at CSCGM. Additionally, the participating charities do not have any out of pocket expenses associated with hosting this event. For details, go to http://cancersupport-communitymiami.org/strut_entry.htm.
