In the United States, cancer remains the leading cause of death amongst children under the age of 15 years old. In 2012 alone, the American Cancer Society estimated that there were about 12,500 children diagnosed with cancer. Within 12 months of being diagnosed, approximately 1,340 of those children will lose their battle with this disease. Childhood cancer rates have been rising slightly for the past few decades. The good news is, it is people like you and I that can help! The Thatch Cottage in collaboration with GEM Magazine and the local chambers of commerce including Huntington, Northport and East Northport, have come together to create an event that will synergize our local communities in efforts to help these children and their families. May 23rd, 2013, over 50 lifestyle fashion and personal development entities will come together in an unprecedented expo to benefit the Have a Heart Children’s Cancer Society(http://www.haveaheartcharity.org/portal/). The function will showcase these businesses and their upcoming trends and will incorporate them into a red carpet fashion show. Long Island visionaries and opinion leaders will also be featured as they shed light on techniques for presenting your best self. Additionally, fashion celebrities such as Donald Trump’s “Beauty Queen Girls” will be in attendance to show their support to such children and help host the show. If your business would like to help this cause, there are many opportunities to do so. Please consider sponsoring the event or donating a raffle prize. Full endorsement details can be found at: www.springexpo.eventbrite.com . Gino Veneroso has been made available at (631) 682-9103 to address any questions or concerns you may have regarding this event. Today, due to major treatment advances in recent decades, more than 80% of children with cancer now survive 5 years or more. Such a statistic is a testament that good will endeavors, such as this, can truly change lives.Presented by:Have a Heart Children's Cancer SocietyNatron StudiosGem MagazineThe Thatched CottageThe Dream Network, Inc. ~ Donald Trump's "Beauty Queen Girls" ~ Performing live, their hit single "Runway" available now on Itunes!
