New York, NY (PRWEB) March 12, 2014
Pajama Glam Party, a fundraiser benefiting women under 40 living with breast cancer, is debuting in Brooklyn on May 3, 2014. Pajama Glam comes from the mind of 11-year-old Noelle Karmo, daughter of a breast cancer survivor, whose mother, Maimah Karmo, founded the Tigerlily Foundation during her treatment.
“I wanted to do something different,” says Noelle. “It’s something moms and daughters can enjoy together. It’s supposed to be fun, but it also means something.” Noelle is no ordinary pre-teen, tired of settling for small-time bake sales, by six Noelle was begging her mom to allow her to throw a fundraiser. She has only recently seen her vision become a reality when Pajama Glam debuted last year in Washington, D.C.—due to the event’s success it has now been established as an annual event.
Noelle’s creativity and fun spirit is evident in every aspect of Pajama Glam. Women and girls are encouraged to show off their finest red, pink or purple pajamas and bling-out for a night of beauty, pillow fights, treats, jewelry, zumba, dancing, swag bags and collages. The evening will be emceed by Amanda Mason, Ms. New York.
“It is so important to empower girls and young women when it comes to their breast health, body health and community engagement,” says Maimah. “ We each have a responsibility to give of ourselves – for the simple fact that we are alive. As Miriam Rice Edelman once said: ‘service is the price we pay for living’.”
The event is set to take place at the Brooklyn Bridge Marriott between 6pm and 10pm. Admission is $20 for children and $30 for adults. Tickets are currently available for purchase from the Tigerlily Foundation website. Proceeds will go to the Tigerlily Foundation, an organization committed to educating young women around the world about breast cancer and encouraging them to be their own best advocates.
