On a beautiful afternoon this past Sunday, ladies and a few gentleman boarded the World Yacht Princess at Pier 81 and set sail for its annual Beauty Brunch for the Cure. Guests were served sparkling rose with their brunch buffet with the New York skyline in the backdrop. The upper deck was transformed into a spa haven at sea.
Patrons were able to receive treatments and services from some of the leading authorities on beauty and wellness with proceeds going to Susan G. Komen for the cure. My personal favorite, Hibba NYC was providing complimentary eyebrow threading; Bliss Spa kneaded the knots out of quite a few backs.
The recently launched John Barrett Braid Bar was on trend providing stunning prairie braids to ladies and artists from Vincent Longo did makeovers. Services were free but guests proudly donated with no issue as 100% of the donations went to Susan G. Komen for the cure. As a final note, gift bags filled with swag from the participants in addition to Mario Badescu, Phillip B and a host of others were a parting gift.
Now going on its 25th year, Breast Cancer Awareness Month has shed light on the importance of eradicating a disease that strikes 1 in 8 women every year. There were quite a few guests whom were breast cancer survivors or knew of someone who had the disease.
The Beauty Brunch for the cure was for many a way to celebrate their own lives, the lives of others and seeking an end to breast cancer. In all, an excellent afternoon for an excellent cause.
