07 Jan Mondays at Racine Hosts 4th Annual Long Island Beauty Ball
Islip, NY- October 29th, 2018– Mondays at Racine Cancer Care Foundation once again hosted their annual fundraiser, The Long Island Beauty Ball, on Monday October 29th at Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury, NY. The event, which was presented New York Cancer & Blood Specialists and hosted by News 12 Long Island’s Emmy Award Winning Anchor, Carol Silva, honored Mrs. Susan Imbert, an active community leader, philanthropist, friend of Mondays at Racine and cancer survivor.
“This year we decided to highlight someone from our community that has really gone above and beyond to support, not only our mission but the cancer community on Long Island. Susan Imbert is that person,” said Karla Waldron, Executive Director for Mondays at Racine. “A close friend, survivor and inspiration to all that know her, Susan’s tireless work in our community is of distinct excellence and an inspiration to all that know her. The Imbert Cancer Center in Bay Shore, named in honor of Susan and her husband Rick, is a perfect example of their dedication to those fighting this awful disease”
Thanks to the ongoing support of the health, wellness + beauty industries plus our amazing community of volunteers and donors, this years event was a huge success raising $270,000. Proceeds from the event are put to use immediately, enabling Mondays at Racine to continue to maintain and grow their Charter Salon program, all in support of the overall mission to reduce the physical, emotional and cosmetic side effects of chemotherapy and radiation; all at NO cost to the client.
“Seeing leaders in the health, wellness + beauty industries, along with business owners across Long Island, come together at The Long Island Beauty Ball in support of Mondays at Racine, confirms that we are on the right path in creating great change in how we take care of people going through this devastating disease,” said Karla Waldron. “This event has captured the essence of the Mondays at Racine mission and gives us the ability to provide these essential programs to more communities throughout Long Island, New York and beyond.”
Guests were treated to a variety of exciting interactive experiences and entertainment including:
- The LIBB Hair and Make-up Show
