Highlights from Our 2010 Event


Click HERE for a message from Andie regarding Ovarian Cancer.

"It is estimated that 75% of the 22,000 women that will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2011 will die because they were diagnosed too late," says Andie.

Due to the absence of a diagnostic tool such as the mammogram or PSA, awareness is the only means we have for early detection. The South Carolina Ovarian Cancer Foundation is a statewide organization that benefits women in our own communities through education and support for those fighting the disease. What better way to help this great cause than being a sponsor of this wonderful event, Handbags for Hope?"


If a bracelet is more your thing, check out the beautiful handmade jewelry by Steph's H4H Designs. 100% of the profits will be donated to the South Carolina Ovarian Cancer Foundation.
