It is with a heavy heart that we have decided not to have the Jeans & Jewels Gala this year. This decision was not made lightly and is due to a variety of reasons revolving around the capacity of our gala chairs/volunteers – in addition to the fact our Co-Chair Sandy Mazoway will be having her first baby 2-weeks before the event! As this cause is so important to us, we always want to be able to put 100 percent of our energy and efforts into hosting a spectacular event focused on rallying our city in the fight against cancer!
We are already making plans for next year and look forward to having every one of you celebrate a sensational event in 2016!
(Date to be announced soon)
The idea behind Jeans and Jewels is part casual + part formal = all fun. We will have a fabulous live and silent auction as well as the lively fashion show and Inspiration Awards.
What to Wear Guys can wear jeans and any type of dress/sport jacket and tie or a jean jacket and dress pants or really any fun combination. Attire for the gals can be a jean dress and fun jewelry, a cocktail dress and jean jacket/vest. Really any combination of a formal outfit with jeans incorporated is what you should look for. Be creative and have fun!
Jeans and Jewels benefits 24 Hours of Booty. 24 Hours of Booty is the premier organization for integrating community fundraising and cycling to support cancer survivorship and navigation programs. It organizes safe, fun and family-friendly bicycling events for all abilities to raise funds for organizations dedicated to the fight against cancer, including the Carolinas HealthCare System’s Levine Cancer Institute and LIVESTRONG Foundation.

The 14th Annual 24 Hours of Booty presented by Levine Cancer Institute will take place in Myers Park on July 24-25, 2015.
We hope to see you there!
