Here's another great way to support an amazing cause while indulging in some serious glamour. Famed fashion designer and colon cancer survivor Carmen Marc Valvo (who is also one of my absolute favorite designers of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York!) is supporting the Colon Cancer Alliance (CCA) and National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month by auctioning off a specially designed, one-of-a-kind, gorgeous blue evening gown from his Black Label Collection.
“I love this iridescent blue chiffon gown, but I will love it more knowing that the proceeds are going to the Colon Cancer Alliance,” said Valvo. “Blue is the new black!” The online auction, benefiting the Colon Cancer Alliance’s awareness programs, takes place through March 15 so that means there's only FIVE MORE DAYS to bid at http://www.biddingforgood.com/CCACMVauction. The winner of this exclusive gown may request it be made in any size ranging from 2 to 18. For more information on the partnership between Carmen Marc Valvo and the CCA, visit www.ccalliance.org/cmv.
And in addition to the online auction, Carmen Marc Valvo has also designed a limited edition of 150 women’s t-shirts that will be on sale throughout the month of March. The shirt can be viewed and purchased on the Colon Cancer Alliance website. Colon caner is a truly preventable disease so let's do our part to help raise awareness and fight it.
