Our Sip and Support event was a huge success! It exceeded all of our expectations. The atmosphere we created with Highlands was so welcoming and filled with laughter. Breast Cancer affects 1 in 9 Kiwi women and Jo wanted to host an event like this because Radiance employs women, and has a high client base of women. So for Jo, it is important to be able to create awareness and make positive changes in our community and beyond. The Breast Cancer Foundation does so much good and provides an incredible amount of support for people that are going through their journey. For Jo, being in business is about making an impact where possible. She is so grateful to have people around to help Radiance raise over $7000 for the Breast Cancer Foundation during our fundraiser.Our fundraiser was an evening of emotion. Lots of laughing as well as hearing some truly heartfelt experiences. We had the privilege to be educated on what to look for, and how to check your boobs.
We were grateful to have the remarkable people who spoke; Alice van Zijl who taught us what breast cancer actually is, and Michelle Smith who spoke about her journey with Breast Cancer. It made the evening even more special. We appreciate everyone who came along and to those who generously donated to the Breast Cancer Foundation. Your support and contributions have made such an impact. Our fundraising goal of $3000 was not only met, but doubled! We raised over $7000 for the Breast Cancer Foundation
