L’Oreal, Harpers hold event to raise money for ovarian cancer research

NEW YORK L’Oreal Paris is presenting Wednesday evening “A Night of Hope” celebration with Harper’s Bazaar to benefit The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.

Cohosting the event, to be held at Murano in Los Angeles, is L’Oreal Paris president Carol J. Hamilton, Harper’s Bazaar editor-in-chief Glenda Bailey and actresses and L’Oreal spokespeople Diane Keaton and Andie MacDowell. They will be joined by other L’Oreal spokespeople, including Eva Longoria, Kerry Washington and Dayle Haddon.

“This year marks the 10th anniversary of L’Oreal Paris’ support of The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. I am proud of the fact that L’Oreal is the largest corporate fundraiser in this critical fight against ovarian cancer,” stated Hamilton. “Since 1997, we have helped to raise over $13 million to fund life-saving research and to promote awareness building programs to help empower women to make educated choices about their health and well-being.”

The evening will include a cocktail reception and luxury silent auction, which will feature photography and fashions and accessories from designers including Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Donna Karan, Bulgari and De Beers.

All of the proceeds raised at the event will be donated to OCRF’s research programs.

In addition, L’Oreal has created programs to promote ovarian cancer awareness, which include the first-ever public service announcements for ovarian cancer featuring L’Oreal spokespeople Andie MacDowell and Milla Jovovich. The beauty company also created the signature “Color of Hope” cosmetics and jewelry collections that raise funds for OCRF. This year, L’Oreal has added a sterling silver pendant and earrings to the jewelry collection. All of the jewelry items are available at www.lorealcolorofhope.com. A special diamond Color of Hope necklace has been created to commemorate this event.
