TEAL & PURPLE MODA
Where Fashion & the Arts Combine!
Cancer can make a woman feel unattractive, isolated and out of touch with herself. The Teal & Purple Moda is an event where survivors can be revived again to feel beautiful and sexy, encouraged, connected with others while finding balance and a sense of self-love and self-worth within. Here we conduct small fashion awareness workshops where survivors and the community come together to learn about ways they can look and feel good for a better quality of life. After the workshops, survivors and caregivers are given the opportunity to rock the runway at our extremely live and haute couture fashion show. There will also be a silent auction used to fund future Teal & Purple Moda events and to aid us in providing support to cancer survivors within the local community through our H. E. R. O. S. Project. With this initiative, our goal is to assist survivors with meeting their needs as they go through the journey of cancer starting with diagnosis, through treatment and with life after cancer. This project is where SCAWINC helps survivors get connected with the right resources to meet their needs. We help survivors who are in need of assistance with food, utilities, and transportation to their appointments. At this event, the community will also have the opportunity to sponsor a survivor by giving to our H. E. R. O. S. Grant. This grant is another way that we will fund our H. E. R. O. S. project for emergency services to meet their needs.
