"Passion Parties' charitable donations are an extension of our commitment to improving the lives of women and their families," said Pat Davis, the president and chief executive officer of Passion Parties International. "The Passion Parties Charitable Foundation was established in January 2007 as a way for Passion Parties and its Passion Consultants™ to make a positive impact on the lives of others.

"The Southern Nevada Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure is honored to receive a $10,000 contribution from Passion Parties," said Stephanie Kirby, Executive Director.

Our vision is a world without breast cancer and we're so grateful to have partners like Passion Parties who share in that vision."
Joanne Harvie, president of Passion Parties Canada added, "Passion Parties is based on the philosophy of helping women. Our donations through The Passion Parties Charitable Foundation are a way to give back to the ladies of Canada."
