Happy Friday everyone! To help get the weekend started off right here is a great inspirational quote from a former Look Good…Feel Better program participant:
“The value of this program to me was immeasurable. The wonderful cosmetics really did make a difference in improving my self-image, especially towards the end of my treatments when I lost all my eyelashes and eyebrows.”- Anonymous LGFB Program Graduate, 2009

For the second year in a row Sexy Hair, a charitable partner of the Look Good Feel Better program, is on a national search for a hair stylist who exemplifies its Caring is Sexy spirit for their Caring is Sexy: Sexy Stylist Contest. The stylist chosen as this year’s Sexy Stylist will receive training at Sexy Hair’s training facility, the Institute of Courage, and the chance to assist Rafe Hardy, Sexy Hair’s artistic creative director during a national campaign photo shoot. For every entry submitted Sexy Hair will donate $5 to the Look Good Feel Better program.
From the nearly 600 submissions received last year, Melissa Schwartz was named the 2010 America’s Sexiest Stylist. She demonstrated her passion for styling, her dedication to her clients, as well as her commitment to giving back to the community through her work as a volunteer at Camp Starburst, a camp for kids affected and infected with HIV and AIDS.

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!
