On November 7th, Diane Keaton and Andie MacDowell co-hosted L’Oréal’s “A Night Of Hope” event at Murano in Los Angeles. A silent auction of exceptional photography, fabulous fashion, and accessories from big names including Chanel, Vuitton and De Beers raised money for the benefit of the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF), a charity that L’Oréal has supported for a decade.
OCRF is dedicated to research and awareness for ovarian cancer, which claims over 15,000 lives in the US alone each year. The problem with this type of cancer is that there is no effective method of early detection, resulting in late diagnosis in 75 percent of cases, too often too late.
Says L’Oréal Paris president Carol J. 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.”
Besides L’Oréal’s search for cure donations and awareness programs, the company also contributes through the sales of signature cosmetics and jewelry collections that are available for purchase online. These include “Color of Hope” cosmetics and jewelry to which a sterling silver pendant and earrings were added this year, as well as a special diamond necklace to commemorate the A Night Of Hope event.
