Start your weekend in celebration this evening by attending the 2nd Annual Pink Woman Fashion Show, featuring breast cancer survivors walking the runway in the latest fashions. The event is sponsored by All Women OB/GYN and presented by Oxmoor Center and Today’s Woman magazine.
Tickets can be purchased online, and VIP tickets include a signature drink, premier fashion show seating, a SWAG bag, and a post-show party. All of the proceeds and donations will go directly to Twisted Pink, a Louisville based non-profit organization whose mission is accelerating treatment options and quality of life for late stage breast cancer by funding metastatic (stage IV) breast cancer research. We hope to see you there!
