QUEENS get the money for breast cancer (Oct 17 to 31, 2011)
In support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, QUEENS boutique (12 E. Cordova) in Gastown is set to launch their “Queens Get The Money” charity drive starting October 17th and running until October 31st. With proceeds from boutique sales, nails services as well as welcoming any and all donations, Queens aims to raise $3,500 for breast cancer research within the two-week event.
“When I first heard my Mom was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, I didn’t believe it. I couldn’t believe it could happen to someone so close to me. It was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to go through in my life” says Queens founder Rose Raflores. “Up until the moment I lost my Mom, I knew very little about Breast Cancer. This charity drive is more than just about raising money, awareness and finding a cure, it’s about helping mend the broken hearts affected by this disease. I truly hope that the spirit of hope, resilience and faith in a future without Breast Cancer is something we can help perpetuate.”
