On Friday, June 21st 2019, Ooh la la Boutiques is hosting our seventh annual Runway for a Cause Fashion Show, benefitting Babylon Breast Cancer Coalition (BBCC). We are thrilled to be teamed
up with BBCC, an amazing non-for-profit 501 (c3). We are excited to invite you to join us in our fight against breast cancer. Runway for a Cause is being held at the Town of Babylon Overlook Beach from
6:30PM to 10PM on Friday, June 21st 2019.
Over the past years we have raised over $100,000 for selected non-for-profits to help make a difference on Long Island. This year we chose BBCC because we love what they are doing. In addition to their educational programs and support of research, BBCC has a very “hands on” approach by offering a variety of no-cost services to those undergoing cancer treatments. Their programs relieve some of the daily stresses a patient incurs during the healing and treatment process. Whether it is transportation to/from doctor visits, cooking, cleaning, shopping, financial assistance, Childcare services, and nutritious meal deliveries. The unconditional support they are offering to victims is simply amazing.
We are committed to a six-month pledge, to raise as much money and social awareness as possible for this fight against breast cancer. We are hosting different events in each one of the towns we are located, in an effort to raise awareness of this terrible disease. The more people get involved, the greater the chance we attain maximum exposure. The scary reality is, that if you do not already know someone close to you that has been affected by breast cancer, chances are, in the future you will.
People ask why do we do this? It is straightforward, we like to do good things. We are good people.
The community has enabled us to succeed and we never lose sight of this. It is part of our mission statement to “Give Back” and “Make a Difference.” Giving back is good for everyone. We learn and gain valuable life experiences along the way. Leading by example, we instill charitable virtues in our younger employees and community members which they then carry forward the rest of their lives.
This helps bring people together and we get to make a difference! Our employees donate their time; our friends and family donate their time. Everyone comes together all for a good cause. At the end of the day, we call come out with a sense of fulfillment, pride and joy. Ooh la la makes no money to do this; every cent raised is pledged to the Babylon Breast Cancer Coalition.
Past humanitarian and charitable efforts witnessed the employees of Ooh la la cleaning beaches, partnering with Women Build | Habitat for Humanity building homes in Baton Rouge and Suffolk County, and donating our time at food shelters to help others. We are thrilled to be part of all this!
Please help us help others and do what you can to be a part of the success of this great event.
Let’s join together to fight against Breast Cancer. Our goal is to make $30,000 for BBCC.
Any contribution you find appropriate is appreciated! All donations are tax deductible. We have many sponsorships available. I would love to see you at the Fashion Show this year. We are going to turn this beach Pink!
BBCC…For Life-For Hope-For Change-For the Future.
Thank you for your time and hope to see you there!
