Hauppauge, NY–ClearVision Optical teamed up with the Greater NYC Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure to sponsor the fabulous and fashionable event, Tickled Pink!
Combining fashion, shopping and breast cancer awareness, The April 16th Tickled Pink! event was hosted by Komen Greater NYC’s Teens for the Cure™, a group that brings daughters (and sons) of breast cancer survivors together in a comfortable space to talk, laugh, cry, and receive support from their peers, so they know they are not alone. The family-oriented event included many mothers who have survived breast cancer and their teenaged children. The evening highlight was a fashion show of Diane Von Furstenberg designs, modeled by professionals as well as breast cancer survivors and their children.
