biggest women's event of the year—and you're invited!
White-Wilson helps host The Little Black Dress Party May 22 to celebrate good health and help raise money for local charities
FORT WALTON BEACH, Florida – April 9, 2010 – Attention ladies! We finally found a good excuse to buy another little black dress—and this time it’s for charity! The White-Wilson Center for Women’s Imaging has partnered with local organizations to host The Little Black Dress Party to help promote preventative healthcare and raise money for local charities. Men, you are invited too, and you do not have to wear a little black dress. In fact, we encourage you not to!
With the current economic conditions, White-Wilson Medical Center has seen a decline in preventative health screenings, specifically amongst women ages 18-55. Unfortunately, these economic difficulties don’t change the fact that early detection is the most effective way to fight back against debilitating diseases such as breast and colon cancer, osteoporosis and heart disease.
In response, White-Wilson Medical Center and Emerald Ladies Journal have partnered with Dillard’s, Qantum Communications, Cox Communications, The Northwest Florida Daily News, Image Printing, Emerald Chic and the Emerald Coast Conference Center to raise awareness regarding the importance of preventative healthcare amongst women and to host this electrifying event. We are passionate that preventative care is the best way to save lives.
The Little Black Dress Party is May 22 at the Emerald Coast Conference Center, and will feature live music by Déjà vu Band, a fashion show by Dillard’s, a live auction, heavy hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar. Tickets are $60 and corporate tables of 10 are $600; 100% of event proceeds will benefit The Shelter House, Opportunity Inc., and the local chapters of The American Cancer Society and The American Heart Association. Call 863-8204 for tickets.
We still need items for the live auction as well as event sponsors. By partnering together, we believe that we can make a difference in the lives of the women in our community. We are proud to bring you this exciting new event and hope that you will slip into your favorite little black dress (or black suit for gentlemen) and come celebrate life and good health with us!
