The Dresscapade 5/3/14

in Blog

“The Dresscapade” at Dollhouse Productions on May 3 is a semi-formal event to benefit the Telfair Mammography Fund at the Mary Telfair Women’s Hospital, part of St. Joseph’s/Candler Hospital.

One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Each year, more than 220,000 women in the United States will be diagnosed, and more than 40,000 will die. The Mammography Fund provides free diagnostic breast exams to women who are uninsured or underinsured in the community. Early detection and treatment is critical to beat the odds and continue living a healthy, normal life.

 

“This event is a way to honor the women who have lost their fight and support the women still fighting,” said Jasmine Sams, owner of FrontRow Public Relations, event organizer.

Sponsored by Real McCoy Entertainment, Leoci’s Trattoria and Southern Pine Co., this is the first time FrontRow has hosted “The Dresscapade” in Savannah.

“We’re going to have great music provided by DJ BooDoo and amazing food sponsored by Leoci’s,” Sams said. “It’s going to be lots of fun, dancing and mingling, and it’s all to promote breast cancer awareness and raise money for the mammographyfund.”

Mary Telfair Women’s Hospital provides services geared toward women and their unique needs, treating the body, mind and spirit by offering state-of-the-art technology and compassionate care. Women 40 and older should have mammograms every 1 to 2 years, while women who are younger and who have risk factors, such as a family history of breast cancer, should speak with their health care professional about when and how often they should have one.

Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door; 10 percent of each ticket sale will be donated to the Telfair Mammography Fund.
