Annese & Associates, Inc.’s is proud to support the 3rd annual Hope for Heather Breakfast at Tiffany’s Fashion Show and Brunch to raise money for Ovarian Cancer research. The event will take place at the Syracuse Crowne Plaza Hotel in the Penthouse Ballroom on April 14th.
Andrea Annese-Como (pictured right), Co-Owner of Annese & Associates and corporate Wellness Advisor is an Ovarian Cancer survivor herself, and advocate. Andrea leads various fundraising events and speaking engagements, and sits on the board of directors of “Caring Together,” an Ovarian Cancer support, education, and awareness group located in the Albany region.
Hope for Heather is a not-for-profit corporation in memory of Heather Weeks, who lost her life to cancer at age 24. Heather was an advocate for women’s cancer, and her parents, Gary and Frieda Weeks, have carried on that mission by creating this organization in her honor.
“We are thrilled at having an event where fashion funds hope,” said Frieda Weeks. “Creating awareness of this dreadful disease while celebrating the strength and beauty of women.”
Ovarian Cancer survivor, Shannon Routh, (nicknamed “The Teal Diva”), will give the keynote at this year’s event and recount her personal journey. Brunch will precede raffles, a silent auction, entertainment, and shopping, with clothing and accessories featured from a variety of local Syracuse boutiques.
Tickets are available at Armory Square’s ShowOffs Boutique for $50. Call 315-471-4636 for more information.
