As some of you know, I have been an advocate for breast cancer research and assistance programs for a very long time. This dreadful disease robbed me of the chance to ever meet my mother-in-law. It also claimed my niece. I served on a national breast cancer foundation board for a number of years and in 2017 founded Runway to the Cure, a local non-profit organization that puts on a fashion show each October to raise funds. This exciting fashion show brings together merchants, corporations, and families from our community who share the common goals of finding a cure for breast cancer and supporting those who are fighting their personal battles.
Local retailers provide the outfits, jewelry, and accessories that the models wear in the show, while others donate hairstyling and makeup. All of the models participating in the show are former or current breast cancer warriors. The stories they share provide a very personal element to the event and their participation celebrates their strength and beauty. The net funds raised each year are split between a national breast cancer research organization and a local breast cancer organization providing support to patients – both are annually chosen through a grant selection process.
This year, COVID-19 has made doing a live fashion show impossible. So, we are going virtual and highlighting our past three shows on our website: www.runwaytothecure.org. If you are inspired to donate through this organization, all funds this year will go to assist breast cancer patients affected by COVID-19.
Additionally, Scout & Molly’s will donate $5 for each breast cancer face mask sold during October. You can purchase face masks in our two stores or online. Here are the styles we have available. Each face mask is $10.
Also – Don’t miss out on our Final Season Blowout Sale! You get an extra 50 percent off already marked down items.
We truly believe that no one style fits all and that we have to have choices for our customers so that she can find something that makes her feel beautiful and comfortable. Our stylists can help our clients step outside their comfort zone, find new trends and approaches to their style in a comfortable environment.
Our team believes that we should always treat each person that walks through our doors like we want to be treated and we strive to do that each and every day. We take our clients seriously. They become like family, stopping to see what’s new and to catch up with their favorite stylist. We hope that our clients feel like they are shopping in their best friend’s closet.
