On November 7th, Shoppers Drug Mart held a Beauty Gala at select stores nationwide.
For the cost of $10 per ticket, guests were able to visit local Shoppers Drug Mart stores to enjoy things like complimentary makeovers, skincare consultations, free samples, refreshments and snacks. Tickets to the event were limited but sold well; stores experienced high traffic and lots of happy ladies.
Gala guests were greeted with a swag bag filled with fabulous goodies like fragrance, makeup and skincare product samples. Prior to leaving, we were able to use out ticket to redeem $5 off of any Shoppers Drug Mart purchase. Between ladies filled with confidence and bags filled with fun new product, the success of the event looked almost as great as the #SDMBeautyGala guests.
From each ticket sold by participating stores in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, PEI and Newfoundland, $5 went to Beauty Gives Back; a registered charity dedicated to making women ‘feel human again in the face of the ravages of cancer and its treatment. In doing so, we help restore their confidence, and the confidence of those around them, to continue fighting with conviction and living with dignity.‘ Visit them here to learn more.
A big thank you goes out to all of the wonderful people from Shoppers Drug Mart, Beauty Gives Back, and the other important charities supported nationwide, and to all of the wonderful supporters and fighters out there for a completing a beautiful event. Together, we can help each other up to stand and face the ugly monster that is cancer and take back what is rightfully ours: confidence.
