Islip, NY- October 30th, 2017– Mondays at Racine Cancer Care Foundation once again hosted their annual fundraiser, The Long Island Beauty Ball, on Monday October 30th at Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury, NY. The event, which was presented by Paramount Beauty and New York Cancer & Blood Specialists and hosted by News 12 Long Island’s Emmy Award Winning Anchor, Carol Silva, featured the health, wellness and beauty industries coming together to educate and elevate cancer care in New York; all in support of those living with cancer.
Thanks to the support and generosity of the 55 corporate sponsors and 800 attendees, the night was a huge success, raising $247,000. Proceeds from the Long Island Beauty Ball enable 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.
