Pink Diamond Fundraising Gala Luncheon

I interviewed Alicia Vianga, owner of Premier Jour Lingerie, 4 years ago, and I had no idea that we would have developed such a deep connection.  I was pretty much drawn to her warmth, positivity, and upbeat nature.  So much so, that we’ve stayed in contact years after the interview. 

 

Not just a successful business owner, Alicia is a passionate philanthropist and happily lives by the pay-it-forward philosophy.  She does this by devoting her time to helping others.   A few years ago Alicia started the Bras for Congo program where she collected over 1000 bras for physically abused women in the Congo. 

 

Her latest cause is her work with breast cancer survivors. She founded the charity after BREAST CANCER (ABC), which provides women who have limited financial resources after breast cancer, with a bra and prosthesis. A bra and prosthesis are not only important for the basic health of a cancer survivor; they also allow women to regain their self-esteem and confidence.

 

To kick off breast cancer awareness month, Alicia will be throwing the Pink Diamond Fundraising Gala Luncheon on Sunday, September 29, 2013.  Attendees will also be treated to a cocktail reception, three-course meal, silent auction, and a chance to win a trip on Porter Airlines. Guests will enjoy performances by pianist Peter Nun, singer Angelica Di Castro and Olympic gymnast Mary Sanders. Breast cancer survivors will strut down the runway in the latest Brian Bailey Fashions.
