Every year we look forward to our annual Beauty of Giving luncheon, which was held Friday December 7th. The afternoon included a live auction, speeches from our Executive Director Kate Sweeney and Board Chairwoman Gina Drosos, and the Beauty of Giving Award presentation.
This year's Beauty of Giving Award for uniting business and benevolence went to Procter & Gamble and was accepted by Chairman of the Board, President and CEO Bob McDonald. The Procter & Gamble Company was one of the first companies to support Cancer and Careers and they have remained a consistent and generous partner over the years. Making them instrumental to our growth.
Each year, we produce a video that attempts to share the essence of what we do. This year was the most poignant of all as we remembered the life of a beauty industry icon, Charla Krupp, who heroically worked through treatment. To see the video dedicated to her, click here.
The event wouldn't be possible without our incredibly generous sponsors, 2012's Beauty of Giving Luncheon was supported by SELF, Omnicom Group, Robertet, Devries, Mary Kay, Orlandi, Tweezerman, QVC, Alden Image, Beauty INC, Consultancy Media, Kaplow, Suite K and WWD.
Thank you again to everyone who attended and to all of our amazing sponsors!
