On Saturday, April 16th, The Beauty Foundation
for Cancer Care hosted its 10th Annual Beauty Ball at the
Robert J. Collins Arena in Lincroft, NJ. The event, which
featured fine cuisine and lively music, raised more than
$300,000 to support families fighting cancer.
The Beauty Foundation’s mission is to alleviate the financial
and emotional strains that cancer places on families. It
raises money to offset expenses incurred that aren’t covered
under insurance, such as child care, household bills, transportation
costs associated with treatment, and other needs.
This year’s award recipients were Mrs. Susan Villapiano
of Colts Neck and Mr. Paul Sansone Sr. of Rumson. Mrs.
Villapiano was presented with the Peter Criss Courage
Award for her battle with breast cancer, and Mr. Sansone
received the Diamond Award of Philanthropy for his dedication
to and support of national and local charities. The
honorees were joined by over 300 guests.
“We’re deeply grateful to our donors and supporters
over the years,” said co-cofounder Krista Olsen-Dibsie.
“Since our inception, The Beauty Foundation for Cancer
Care has raised nearly $2 million and has provided grants
and services to thousands of families.”
