The Holly Rose Ribbon Foundation was founded by Dr. Franklin Rose and his wife, Cindi Harwood Rose, in 2005. The foundation was founded after Cindi's sister was diagnosed with breast cancer and was told she had only 3 months to live. That was 7 years ago and she is still going strong, however, the idea that more than 45 million Americans are without health insurance drove the Rose family to help those who have been diagnosed with this disease and cannot afford proper post-care. The Holly Rose Ribbon Foundation "provides free reconstructive surgery to post-cancer patients who are not able to afford health insurance".
Tickets are $125 and benefit the Holly Rose Ribbon Foundation. Reuel will perform live at the event at Saks. At the after-party Nashville country singer Allan Duhon will sing with award winning artist Kristine Mills at Deborah Colton Gallery at 9pm. Come on by, don your best duds and walk the red carpet with some of Hollywood's rising stars! Details can be found on the party's Facebook page.
This event is on the heels of another charitable event, Broadway Belts for Pulmonary Fibrosis, that benefited the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation, which was founded by Dr. Rose's father, the late Albert Rose. Dr. Rose's brother, Daniel Rose, MD is the current head of the foundation.
