Dazzling fashions, a signature cocktail, delectable dishes, an exclusive swag bag, good music, good friends, and good times…all for a good cause. What could be better? The Fourth Annual American Cancer Society “Couture for the Cause” will be held on October 12th at a Tuscan-inspired private home in Sugar Land. Cari Middaugh, the 2013 Event Chair says, “Our theme is ‘La Dolce Vita’, the ‘Sweet Life.’ We hope to raise awareness and resources so that together we can create a world with more birthdays, one sweet life at a time.”
The event has some amazing support behind it from local businesses like Presenting Sponsor, the Wealth Design Group, community supporters like honorary chairs Rick and Tara Ray, Florence Swag Bag Sponsors including Johnson Development, Capri Sponsors including Jill Gibson, Keller Williams, and Houston Methodist Hospital Sugar Land, and in-kind donors including Houston Diamond Outlet, Milagro Salons, Empire Face, Met Life, and Karen Byer.
“The featured couture will be showcased by models whose lives have been touched by cancer,” Cari says. “Empire Faces will be doing their makeup and Milagro Salons will be perfecting their hair. Cure and Co., a cancer-wellness boutique and studio spa owned by mother/daughter breast cancer survivors Sasha Klein and Irma Klink, will be pampering our ‘Couture’ models. Best of all, a portion of the funds will support the American Cancer Society’s Hope Lodge Houston, a free home away from home where cancer patients undergoing treatment and their families can stay.”
Did you know…. No single nongovernmental, not-for-profit organization in the US has invested more to find the causes and cures of cancer than the American Cancer Society. Events like our own Couture for the Cause help fund this research. Buy your tickets now, so you can participate in the “Champagne and Diamonds” raffle featuring a gorgeous diamond Eternity necklace donated by the Houston Diamond Outlet. In Couture for the Cause’s first ever “Wine Pull” you can buy a chance to pull a “mystery cork” and match it to a bottle of wine donated by one of our amazing sponsors. You’ll also enjoy delicious treats from incredible restaurants who have offered their support including BLU Restaurant and Lounge, Ray’s Grill, Mia Bella, Grimaldi’s, P.F. Chang’s, and Veritas.
