This week’s update contains some very exciting news for everyone here at on the Look Good Feel Better team. Sunday night LGFB celebrated in true Hollywood style at the premier of Rabbit Hole starring Nicole Kidman, Aaron Eckhart, Dianne Wiest, Miles Teller, Tammy Blanchard and Sandra Oh during AFI Fest. Clarisonic, who has an ongoing partnership with LGFB, invited us to be their guests of honor during AFI Fest’s screening of the movie. Clairsonic was also kind enough to invite our volunteers from the L.A area to attend the event.
Along with the movie premier AFI and Clarisonic hosted an education panel moderated by LGFB advocate and cancer survivor, Geralyn Lucas the author of Why I Wore Makeup To My Mastectomy. Serving on the panel were cancer survivors Dawn Charles and Robin Enos, and Clarisonic ambassador and celebrity makeup artist Darrell Redleaf.
The highlight of the evening (other than of course the fabulous movie premier!) was during the reception Clarisonic presented two checks to LGFB. One check for $30,000 from the Facebook “Like” campaign that went on during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and a second check for $500,000!
We would like to give many thanks to Clarisonic for being wonderful supporters of our organization!
Today marks the last Monday in September, and while some may be thinking “where did the time go?” we at Look Good Feel Better are very eager for October to begin. Why you may ask? Well, starting in October LGFB will be embarking on some very exciting partnerships. Below you will find a list of the companies LGFB is partnering with, starting in October, to raise awareness and funds for the program:
Along with these partnerships LGFB is pleased to announce Sebastian Professional has made a $20,000 contribution, and is encouraging their salons to refer women to the program.
For more information about our partnerships unfolding in October please visit our Corporate Sponsors page on our website.
The year 2009 was a special year for Look Good Feel better which included the 20th anniversary of the program. It was made a bit more special last week when the LGFB 20th anniversary public awareness campaign was honored with a Certificate of Excellence at the Public Relations Society of America’s 2010 Thoth Awards Gala in Washington, D.C. So thanks you to everyone who continues to make our program amazing!
We hope everyone has a great week. Keep checking back for the most updated information about LGFB.
