October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and there will be many opportunities to help support the fight against breast cancer throughout the area—including the gift basket raffle being held at The Day Spa at Hair Plus.
Unlike most such raffles, there's no requirement to buy a ticket for a chance to win the basket filled with hair and skin products, as well as Zen-tastic decorating items—just stop by during the month of October and drop a ticket with your name in the bin and you could win.
Of course, you can always make a donation while you're there—but the Day Spa's Donna Cutts notes the goal is to increase awareness of breast and ovarian cancer.
There are many more fundraising projects set for the month to highlight the disease which impacts as many as one in eight women in the US—have a favorite?
Tell us how you're helping in the battle or highlighting breast cancer—or share your story about breast cancer—during the month, we'll add it to our Storify schedule of events, happening and stories.
