Skindulgence The Urban Retreat Newsletter Breast Cancer Month
October 2007 

river Celebrate PINK in Honour of Breast Cancer 

October at Skindulgence is dedicated to Breast Cancer and this year we will be throwing the
Grandest Party Yet!
 
 We honour Breast Cancer Research Foundation's contribution to moving closer to a world without breast cancer, but we are challenged by the reality that only 18% of government grant applications that the National Cancer Institute wants to support get funded. And that 10% fewer patients are in clinical trials because there is not enough money.
 
         We at Skindulgence The Urban Retreat choose to honor the Breast Cancer Foundation by throwing a Spa'rty each year to raise not only money, but also awareness of the critical disease that takes our Mothers, Grandmothers, Sisters and Friends.
 
           Join Team Skindulgence at the Spa on Thursday October.25th at our Spa'rty for our annual Everything Pink Spa'rty from 6pm-9pm.
 
         This years Spa'rty will be more extravagant then ever... With over 1400 sqft for clients to wonder, drink wine, chit chat with other women, watch and participate in our In-Spa demo's.
          A Silent Auction of a select number of exclusive items donated by local merchants will be up for bid ! With 100%  of raised proceeds going back to the Cure. 5% of every "pink" item sold at Skinduglence, in the month of October will also  be donated back.
 
           Local Oil Paintings from K.C. Art will be on display, featuring her series named "Enchanted".Kristin's paintings have been classified as a "Modern twist" on a Traditional Style. 'these paintings have a unique feeling to each of them, the calming serene landscapes compliments the modern feel of my portraits. Each one alone brings a whole new chapter, but together they create a True Essence' -Kristin Crestejo 
** Kristin will be donating 10% of any paintings sold back to the Cure**
          
          Classical  music by local violinist, Rosemary Siemens will be part of the entertainment for the evening. Rosemary has completed her Bachelor of Music in violin performance at the University of British Columbia studying with Andrew Dawes. Her studies then led her to the University of Miami where she completed a Masters in violin performance.
         
 
        2007 's Everything Pink Spa'rty will be one to remember. We are going FULL THROTTLE with the meaning "Everything Pink !!! "
 
 We are inviting our guests to wear ANYTHING Pink that night (P.S. Ladies, make-up does not count !!) and receive $5 OFF your entire purchase of $25 or more.
 
So bring a group of your girlfriends, wear something pink, sip some wine and help raise donations for a GOOD cause....
