A suite in the luxurious Hotel Palomar Los Angeles - Westwood provided an intimate setting where both men and women (Did I say men?...yes men) gathered to raise funds for NBCAM. Did you know that although most cases of male breast cancer are detected in men between the ages of 60 and 70, it still accounts for 1% of cases?
National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM), is an annual international health campaign organized by major breast cancer charities every October to increase awareness of the disease. It also raises needed funds for research into the cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure. You may have noticed the proud display of pink ribbons people are donning in support of NBCAM.
Adorned in my favorite pink "T", I hopped on my environmentally friendly pink cruiser (not to mention proceeds from my pink bike lock go towards breast cancer research) and pedaled on over to join in the festivities towards a great cause.
Scott Friedman, VP Marketing of MD Solar Sciences was on hand to introduce me to their state-of-the-art sunscreen products. Featured on the cover of Allure Magazine as a "top notch sunscreen" as well as Women's Health Magazine and several others, MDSolarSciences is a physician-driven primary skin cancer prevention company. They likewise recognize the need for a broad range of high quality products. I love their Mineral Screen Tinted Gel 30+.

I next met with Erin Curci, founder of Lolo and Lucia, a healthy skin care line for girls. Her products feature basic skin care, body wash and shampoo and are made with paraben free, natural extracts. With the upcoming Holidays, her 3-piece moisturizing facial care or body care kits are perfect for gift giving. She likewise created similar products for boys called "Hazard". A portion of the proceeds from all sales are donated to benefit girls in need.
My peepers were pampered to a beautifying oxygen eye mask, courtesy of Asia Demarcos, owner of Hollywood Beautiful.

Everybody wants to "get inna' the act." Who's old enough to remember that famous line? Comedian/Actor and talented artist Brady Matthews was present with his V (neck) …-agina (dare I say it?) T shirts. Okay, take a look at my picture and you'll figure it out. That savvy diva on his left is Stacy Broff of Diamond Girl Media Inc. who helped make this great event possible. Also present, though not pictured was Kit Wallace, president and founder of blue eyed entertainment.
