Each year our team selects a non-profit partner for each of our events. We have so much fun learning about established non-profits and meeting people who have new non-profits in our city. Our 2015 non-profit partner for the Just for Her Event is the Komen Foundation of Greater Kansas City. It just made sense. It's all about women, breast health education and saving lives. Perfect for the Just for Her Event!
Sunday, June 14th is Survivor Sunday at the event. All survivors will get into the event for FREE. We want to celebrate these amazing women and give them a little gift from us. We will also have a group of survivors participating on one of our fashion shows on Sunday - such a fun way to honor these women.
We have partners who also believe in women's health and have joined us in our mission to saves lives through early detection. Our sponsor, HCA Midwest Health is offering a breast health risk assessment. Go to hcamidwest.com/breastrisk - take the quick assessment and you will get a free ticket to the Just for Her Event and a free shopping tote. How cool is that!?!
I was recently talking with Lorrie Ritchie from the Kansas City Health & Wellness Magazine. If you haven't picked up this magazine, you really need to. It features doctors and health and wellness professionals who provide exceptional health care options in Kansas City. The Specialists featured educate readers and help them achieve, maintain and live a healthy, well-balanced life. We were talking about our partnership with Komen and how we are on a mission to help educate more women about early detection. Lorrie reminded me it is also about living and maintaining a well-balanced life. This is something I really need to work on!
We love that we get to host a giant shopping event for the women of Kansas City (we like to say thousands of our closest friends!) and at the same time do something that matters so much. It makes our days even better knowing that the Just for Her Event is all about the whole woman - great shopping, lots of things to experience and different ways to learn more about breast health.
Let's all save second base together!
