A local boutique and photography company are teaming up to produce a fashion show that benefits Pancreatic Cancer awareness. See how they’re working to change the future of the disease, one stylish look at a time.
Marla Lisman from Big Shots Photography and the team at the Pink Tulip Club are joining forces to bring a fun night out filled with fashion, food and fundraising for a great cause. The Pancreatic Cancer Benefit Fashion Show will be held at the Pink Tulip Club’s location in Hyde Park on Wednesday, November 4 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
“All of the ticket sales will go to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network,” says Lisman. “Pancreatic cancer is currently the fourth leading cause of cancer-related death in the United States and is anticipated to become the second leading cause by 2020.”
This year, approximately 49,000 Americans will be given a pancreatic cancer diagnosis and as many as 40,000 will die from the disease. The high mortality rate is due to there being no early detection tools and few effective treatment options.
The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network is doing what they can to help change the future course of the disease.
The $5 ticket to the event includes food, beverages and a look at the latest trends in fall fashion in addition to plenty of education on pancreatic cancer. “We will have a survivor speak about her experience as well as having resources for people to learn more about this devastating cancer,” adds Lisman.
Additionally, November in Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month and the awareness color is purple, so Lisman says event attendees are encouraged to wear purple.
