About Shoppers Drug Mart Beauty Galas
This is the fifth year Shoppers Drug Mart LOVE.YOU. has launched the National Beauty Galas in support of women’s health. The Beauty Gala is a one day event to help raise funds for The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation in Ontario, British Columbia and Yukon; Beauty Gives Back in Alberta, Atlantic and Prairies and finally, Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation in Quebec.
In 2015 the national Galas raised over $1.7 million dollars in support of women’s health. This year, a summer gala will be introduced, resulting in three galas total, to further support women’s health throughout Canada.
As a result of the funds raised through the Beauty Galas, traveling mammography units for breast cancer screening in communities across BC is now possible; In Ontario, funds support the development of an online decision-aid tool to help women make an informed and empowered decision about breast screening; Alberta, Atlantic and Prairies support Beauty Gives Back, the home of the Look Good Feel Better program and charitable foundation of Canada’s beauty industry; and in Quebec, funds support women who face financial difficulties while they undergo treatment for breast cancer.
The Beauty Galas give customers a chance to personally indulge and positively impact the health of women.
Event activities including, skin analysis and makeup applications as well as special draws and raffles. Tickets are available for $10 and can be purchased at your local Shoppers Drug Mart. Half ($5) of each ticket sold will be donated to the charity supported, while the remaining $5 is redeemable on any cosmetic purchase made at Shoppers Drug Mart during the event.
The Shoppers LOVE. YOU. portfolio gathers resources and expertise from supported partners at leading women’s health organizations across Canada helping women stay focused on making their own health a priority.

About Look Good Feel Better
Look Good Feel Better is Canada’s only charitable cancer program dedicated to empowering women to manage the effects that cancer and its treatment can have on their appearance. At the heart of Look Good Feel Better is the free, 2 hour hands-on workshop offered at 120 cancer care facilities and hospitals across the country. Since its inception, it is estimated that Look Good Feel Better has helped hundreds of thousands of women across the country.
What is the Cancer Blues? It’s a term for the emotional distress caused by cancer and its treatment. The Cancer Blues is a huge and overlooked part of the cancer story. For the majority of women, a cancer diagnosis unleashes as many emotional symptoms as physical ones.
#WINKDay is all about helping support women with cancer. Look Good Feel Better workshops provide these women with valuable Look Good Feel Better tips and tools to look and feel more like themselves during treatment. Confidence starts with a WINK!

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.
