Paint The Town Red

Over 500 of the cosmetic industry’s most generous came together on Friday the 31st August at Sydney’s ICC for the annual Dream Ball, in support of Look Good Feel Better. Guests painted the town red as they were entertained by Casey Donovan and DJ duo Discovery while the charity’s Patron, Kerri-Anne Kennerly once again worked her magic as MC for the evening.

The annual Dream Ball event raises vital funds that allow Look Good Feel Better to provide confidence building workshops to cancer patients around the country. As a result of this year’s evening, a record 152 workshops will be fully funded for the next twelve months, benefitting over 1,500 cancer patients in need of the charity’s assistance. 

Carol Kavurma, General Manager of Look Good Feel Better thanked guests, saying: “Each year we come together for this incredible evening, but more importantly, for a cause that is so close to us all. Our workshops have such an incredible and tangible impact on thousands of cancer patients around the country, and on behalf of all of those who benefit from your generosity, we thank you.”

Christina, a past participant of the program, spoke on the night. Of her experience she said: “The challenge of managing the physical side effects of treatment are 100 times better when you aren’t trying to figure it out on your own. How to properly draw on eyebrows and put colour back in my cheeks was key for me. I was able to just let go of all the stresses that cancer causes due to physical changes, and to be looked after for those two and a half hours - the whole workshop was stress-free and fun.”

The charity relies heavily on the support of the cosmetic industry to sustain its existence and thanks those who were at Dream Ball or donated prizes for the evening, as well as those who support throughout the year through stock donations, services in kind and by volunteering. For 28 years the Look Good Feel Better program has been helping cancer patients learn how to deal with significant changes on the outside, while more profoundly effecting real change on the inside and, with your support, can continue to do so well into the future.

Whether you have a high roller budget, or a shoe string discretionary spend would you ever purchase a fragrance you just don’t like…and then wear it? A fragrance is your sensory signature, it’s your lasting sensory impression you leave with the one you encounter. A woman or man’s relationship with their fragrance is an intimate bond. The scent of a fragrance allows you to be creative and individual, to create an alter ego or choose a particular persona - you choose who you would like to be that day.
