October Festivities

October kicks off the holiday season and is our studio’s anniversary month, so of course we have to celebrate! Here are the events you just gotta check out!

"Make an IMPACT for Hope" Charity Raffle

Impact One is a local Breast Cancer Foundation that provides support and resources to breast cancer fighters.  They offer comfort during a time of fear and uncertainty with a program designed to help women find the support, products, and resources that can help eliminate some of the financial burden.  Their “Hope Box” is a gift of love.  This box may contain such things as wigs, scarves, post-surgical bras, prosthetics, mastectomy bras, creams for radiation, as well as self-care items and handwritten notes of support meant to uplift the spirits.

The FULL amount raised during this raffle goes to Impact One to support their efforts in supporting women on their breast cancer journey.  For more information on this wonderful foundation, visit them at IMPACTONE.PINK.
