We were honored to host an event at Bits of Lace to raise awareness for Gynecologic Cancer Awareness Month and benefit the Foundation for Women’s Cancer. WOW, what an inspiring and eye-opening evening. We were so fortunate to have some very special guests; including Dr. Jennifer Pierce, a Gynecologic Oncologist at MUSC, and two of her patients who spoke about their stories. It was incredibly emotional to listen to these heroic women tell about their experiences with gynecologic cancers. Jennifer Newnam, CEO & Founder of Knock out! Panties, also joined us to show her support and share her story of why she chose to become involved with this amazing organization. Did you know that she sends a FREE pair of Knock out! panties to every registrant of the National Race to End Women’s Cancer? Last year she gave away over 3,000 pairs! Some of our local pageant queens also came out, including Kristen Hopson, Mrs. Charleston, Laura Smith, Mrs. U.S. United and Ashley Hunter, Jr. Teen Miss World Elite.
The evening was complete with crisp cocktails, delicious cupcakes and savory appetizers. One lucky guest won a bra and panty set from Simone Perele and another won a week’s worth of Knock out! panties. Bits of Lace has created a team to “Sleep In & Support the Cause” for the National Race to End Women’s Cancer. We were so excited to add nine amazing ladies to our team at the event! A great time was had by all and we will continue to support this incredible cause that works tirelessly to increase awareness and find a cure for gynecologic cancers.
