Also being honored at the event are two "DreamGirls" and Look Good Feel Better participants: Tony and Grammy nominated Broadway star Valisia LeKae, and teen sensation and America's Got Talent semi-finalist Calysta Bevier. The two inspiring ovarian cancer survivors and nationally renowned singers will share their stories on stage, and perform together at the event.
"The DreamBall is extraordinarily important for Look Good Feel Better, as it raises the majority of the funds that make it possible to help 50,000 women annually to feel strong, beautiful and in control during cancer treatment," said Louanne Roark, Executive Director of the Personal Care Products Council Foundation and Look Good Feel Better. "We are so proud to honor industry veterans and longstanding Look Good Feel Better supporters Marc Rey and Daniel Annese, and our two extraordinary DreamGirls, and so grateful for the continued support of so many in the beauty, fashion and publishing industries who make our program possible."
"At the American Cancer Society, we regularly hear from patients that the aesthetic side effects that accompany treatment for ovarian cancer, or any cancer, can be emotionally debilitating," says Kris Kim, Executive Vice President and Eastern Division Operating Officer for the American Cancer Society. "The Look Good Feel Better Program helps alleviate this anxiety, so women can refocus their attention on healing."
The DreamBall will be immediately followed by the signature DreamBall After Dark, a special after-hours event aimed at engaging the next generation of philanthropic leaders within and beyond the beauty industry in support of the Look Good Feel Better program. Guests will enjoy cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, a silent auction and music by DJ Jasmine Chess.
