It is estimated one in 70 women will develop Ovarian Cancer in her lifetime. Not as prevalent as breast cancer, Ovarian Cancer is more deadly! It is the fifth leading cause of cancer death in women, and has the highest mortality rate of all gynecological cancers.
The reason? The warning signs of Ovarian Cancer are vague and misunderstood. The Beary Couture Foundation hopes to change that. Founder Cynthia Kennedy, a Reno resident, is currently battling this deadly disease. Upon diagnosis 2 years ago, Cynthia decided to make it her mission to bring awareness of Ovarian Cancer and its symptoms, especially during the month of September, “Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month.”
The "See Teal… Get Real" campaign kicks off with the Beary Couture Awareness Picnic at Rancharrah Elite Event Center 6001 Talbot Ln Reno, NV on Saturday September 8 from 11am to 6pm.
Food, Wine, Beer, Live Music, Bounce Houses, Face Painting, Balloon Twisters, Elite Crafters, Live Auction, Silent Auctions, and other vendors will be on hand. The public is encouraged to bring their families, Chairs, Blankets, and enjoy a wonderful afternoon at a great venue for a very Important Cause.
Cost at the gate is:
Adults $15 Children $9 Family Pass $30
Tickets can be purchased prior to the event at a discounted cost at Clay Canvas in the Plumbgate Shopping Center on the Corner of Arlington and Plumb, and Daughter's Cafe, 97 Bell St Reno. You can also go to our website bearycouture.com to purchase tickets.
All net proceeds will go to the Beary Couture Ovarian Cancer Awareness Foundation to bring awareness to Ovarian Cancer so that women have a fair chance at fighting this disease.
