Host Jessica Koussevitzky put on her heels, grabbed her purse, and caught up with some of the supporters for a day of high-class pampering. One of its most worthwhile events of the season, local breast cancer charity organization Glam-a-Thon, has teamed up with the Gallery of Amazing Things to host its annual Lipstick Lounge. Lipstick Lounge is one of Glam-a-Thon’s signature fundraiser, which incorporates cocktails, cosmetics, confections, and couture to raise money for the Broward Health Foundation. All funds raised help underinsured and uninsured women in the South Florida area receive early diagnostic testing and mammograms, while those battling breast cancer receive financial aid, transportation, Medebras, and other vital lifestyle needs. And who doesn’t like to be pampered? Ladies basked in utter relaxation in the luxury Beauty Bar, while the gentlemen retreated into the Man Cave the Big Boys Toy Chest for their own pampering. To completely satisfy cravings, guests sampled delectable treats from culinary superstars. As the finishing touch, all guests walked away with quintessential swag bags, which were filled with fashion, food, and beauty souvenirs.
If you missed the Lipstick Lounge don’t worry you can come out to the Glam Doll Strut Oct 18, 2014 and strut your stuff.

It costs $150 to cover the cost of a mammogram and mammos save lives. Simply ask a few friends, family or work mates to support you with a $5, $10 or $20 donation. Raise $150 and you will be doing your part to Save A Boob! At the Strut all participants to raise $150+ dollars will receive a super-cool I Saved A Boob sticker to wear loud and proud!
Who Can Strut?
Everyone with panache, flair, and a sense of humor can join Lynn Martinez, our Deco Drive Diva, as she leads the high heel hilarity in Glam-bassador style. Hob-nob with your favorite radio and TV darlings as they primp right alongside you. Men are encouraged to support the divas at this event, and children and pets are a fab addition! Have a baby stroller? Join the Stroller Strut! Deck your baby carriage out and have some fun.
There are numerous paid parking lots and garages available within a short walk of Esplanade Park. SW 2nd Street will be closed to traffic as well as several artery streets, so meters in the area will not be a viable option that day. We encourage you to carpool with your friends and start the party early! This year promises to be a wildly large crowd!
There will be two categories for doggies to win a fabulous 2013 Glam crown. Crowns will be based on your costume creativity, so think pink and have fun!
