Two DC-based lingerie businesses are banding together to support women with ovarian cancer and educate their customers about this “unmentionable” disease. Join Bloomers, Belabumbum and DC-based nonprofit the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance for a special event dedicated to supporting women from top to bottom.
This September, lingerie and loungewear company Belabumbum created a special camisole and panty set in teal (the color of ovarian cancer awareness) with touches of pink to symbolize the connection with breast cancer. Women who have one of these diseases are at greater risk of developing the other. One hundred percent of the proceeds from sales of this set are being donated to the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance to support our work on behalf of women with this disease.
Ovarian cancer and other “below-the-belt” diseases are not often topics of conversation, even though a woman is diagnosed with the disease every 24 minutes. An “Unmentionable” Affair will highlight this cause with a fun afternoon of shopping and socializing. Women—and men—are invited to drop by Bloomers on Saturday, September 28, to learn about “unmentionable” cancers and buy a beautiful lingerie set that benefits the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance.
In addition to highlighting ovarian cancer awareness, this event will showcase women business leaders and entrepreneurs in the DC area. All three participating organizations are helmed by women and dedicated to women’s interests.
What: An “Unmentionable” Affair: Bloomers hosts a special event featuring Belabumbum’s lingerie set for ovarian cancer awareness. Guests will snack on teal cupcakes from Cake Love, browse the selection at Bloomers and learn about ovarian cancer.
When: Saturday, September 28, 2013, 1:00-3:00 pm
Where: Bloomers, 3210 O Street, NW, Washington, DC
Who: Heidi Rauch, Founder of Belabumbum; Kim Putens, Owner of Bloomers; Calaneet Balas, CEO of the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance
