THANK YOU for Supporting the EYS Virtual Fashion Show

THANK YOU to everyone for your support of Embrace Your Sisters (EYS)! We appreciate all of our event sponsors, donors, and attendees that contributed to our Tea At Two Refashioned-Fashion Show, which was held virtually! A special thanks to our fashion show friends: Chandeliers Boutique, Chico's, Icon Hair Salon and Spa, and our event emcee 92.5 WBEE Billy Kidd! We raised over $8000, which is significantly less (almost 75% less) than past years when we hosted live events. Now more than ever, we need the community’s support to keep EYS viable so we can continue helping people in need of short-term financial support during their breast cancer recovery process. 

Stay tuned for more information about our upcoming Positively Pink Walk this fall!
