(Port Elizabeth) – For the past 15 years, Port Elizabeth PR consultant Michelle Brown has hosted the Breast Cancer Charity Breakfast as a tribute to her late mom, with every cent raised going to a chosen breast cancer beneficiary organisation.

This year, the annual fundraiser takes place on October 7 at the Boardwalk Convention Centre and features two powerhouse speakers in the form of media personalities Khanyi Dhlomo and Pnina Fenster.

“There is power in having a vision, but it has to be articulated and be made a reality”, says Ndalo Media founder Dhlomo, who was named most influential woman in SA Media in 2003 and made the 2011 Forbes list of 20 Young Powerful Women in Africa. She will be aiming to inspire the audience alongside fellow guest speaker and Glamour magazine editor Fenster.

The beneficiary of this year’s event will be the Look Good Feel Better Foundation, a national organisation of volunteers, who hold workshops in various hospitals and oncology wards. The volunteers show women who are undergoing chemo how to fit their wigs and apply make-up, so as to “look good and feel better”.

This is a ladies-only function and the dress code is elegant, in shades of pink and white. Doors open at 9 for 9.30am.

Tickets cost R350 per person. Book before September 25 by emailing Suzette Meyer on smeyer@algoanet.com.
