Berry Lavender Cocktail anyone? We were thrilled to join the American Cancer Society in celebrating their annual Red, White & Blue party! This year’s guests enjoyed live grilling, live music from Funk Evolution, yard games and a silent auction, not to mention delicious food and beverage.
We knew we had to be a part of this magnificent community cause, so we decided to jump in, Spa Mirbeau-style! We sponsored Blueberry Lavender Cocktails for each guest, reminiscent of a luxurious spa getaway with each sip. We also donated to the party’s silent auction, providing a luxurious Mirbeau brand gym bag filled with top-of-the-line beauty products, candles, chocolates, and gift cards to Crossgates Mall and Spa Mirbeau. The deserving winner, Barbara Macdowell, is a volunteer on all 3 ACS event committees, sits on the local ACS Board of Advisors and runs the ACS Blood Cancer support group, all on top of her hectic schedule as an oncology nurse. We look forward to spoiling Barbara when we open this fall!
To top off the Red, White, & Blue party, the American Cancer Society took time to honor two people who have been personally impacted by their mission. The society presented the Hero of Hope Award to the Villa Family in honor of John Villa, who recently passed away after a short battle with pancreatic cancer, and the Rising Star Award to Robert Bellizzi, a young professional who has not only been impacted by cancer, but has used his passion to help fight the disease.
The American Cancer Society’s mission is to one day create a world free from the pain and suffering of cancer, and we were honored to play a tiny part in helping them get one step closer to that world.
To all of the fabulous guests from the Red, White and Blue Party, we look forward to seeing you again at Spa Mirbeau in Crossgates this fall!
We were so proud to have Spa Mirabeau as a new community partner in the 2017 American Cancer Society’s Red, White & Blue Party as our Signature Drink Sponsor! Donating to events like these allows the American Cancer Society to raise awareness and funds to provide life-saving patient services and groundbreaking research. It is our mission to save lives, celebrate lives and lead the fight for a world without cancer and we certainly couldn’t do that without partners like Spa Mirbeau! They were a pleasure to work with and we look forward to continuing to make a difference in the fight against cancer with them by our side in the future. –Elizabeth Hunter, ACS Community Development Manager
