The DreamBall is an iconic, black-tie gala attended by 500 beauty, fashion and media industry executives. It is the largest fundraiser of the year for the beauty industry's Look Good Feel Better cancer support program, which has helped nearly 1 million women with cancer in the U.S. to address the appearance side effects of treatment since the program began in 1989.
"We are excited to introduce our new BeautyCares theme at this year's event," said Executive Director Louanne Roark. "BeautyCares calls on individuals, brands and businesses from across the beauty industry to join together with clinicians, caregivers, families, patients and survivors to demonstrate the energizing power of care, and the sense of confidence that women find when they are empowered to rediscover their control, beauty and sense of self during cancer treatment."

"Look Good Feel Better epitomizes the impact that beauty has on our wellbeing," said George Calvert, chairman of the Look Good Feel Better Foundation Board of Directors, and chief supply chain officer at Amway. "I am privileged to serve on the board of an organization that so passionately works to improve the lives of people living with cancer, and proud to honor such an extraordinary group of individuals who have made it their mission to educate, support and treat those touched by the disease."
The DreamBall will also feature a performance by the new hit Broadway show, Pretty Woman: The Musical, which has designated Look Good Feel Better as a charitable partner.
