Put on your best face for a great cause, enjoy time with gal pals at Le Beau Salon Friday
There will be a breast cancer awareness fundraiser from 3 to 8 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 20 at Le Beau Salon inside the City Centre Mall, 106 Main St., Batavia.
It is being held by salon owner Erika Siverling and her friend Jill Meeder, of Pearl Wellness Center.
Attendees can get their makeup done professionally for a $25 donation. There will be lots of raffle baskets to try for and a 50/50 raffle.
Appetizers, beverages and snacks will be served.
Cost to attend if you choose not to have your makeup done is $10 per person. All proceeds will go to the national nonprofit Breast Cancer Prevention Partners.
The San Fransisco-based organization has teamed up with the makeup company used at Le Beau Salon -- Beauty Counter -- and money from the purchase of those cosmetics used also goes to that nonprofit.
Le Beau's proceeds will be donated in the name of their friend, local breast cancer survivor Stacey Brion Cory.
The salon owner says the community ourpouring of support for the event has been amazing.
"We even had tablecloths and napkins donated by Batavia Restaurant Supply, everyone has just been so supportive, it's been great," Siverling said.
