On July 27, Charity Chicks US and We Will Survive Cancer will host a VIP Pink Party in the garden of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Georgetown, where young women battling cancer and other serious illnesses will enjoy an evening of pampering and relaxation to break away from their usual routine.
“We really want to make [these] girls feel beautiful and special,” says Elizabeth Kane, founder of Charity Chicks US. The girls will be pampered with makeup, manicures, music and pink swag.
The Pink Party will feature a live jazz quartet, specialty cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, and art lessons overlooking the flower garden.
The event begins at 5 p.m. and concludes at 8 p.m.. Only 100 tickets are available to the general public; tickets can be purchased for $125 apiece here.
Proceeds from the event will benefit The Children’s Inn at NIH, which provides free room and board to families whose seriously ill children participate in medical research at the National Institutes of Health. Many of the children, suffering from illnesses ranging from HIV and cancer to growth disorders and mental illness, travel to the NIH from all over the world in order to seek treatment.
