THE HOLLY ROSE RIBBON FOUNDATION’S BIGGEST SUPPORTERS gathered at Crimson Lounge on Kirby Ave. with wine and spirits in hand for the precursor to Houstonia’s Kentucky Derby Viewing Party. Guests donated libations to be used for the wine spin and “Satisfy Your Spirits” liquor toss during the Mint Juleps & Jodhpurs viewing party on May 7. The games will help raise money for the Holly Rose Ribbon Foundation, a charity dedicated to providing free reconstructive surgery for breast cancer patients who otherwise cannot afford health insurance.

Thank you to our friends, volunteers, sponsors, and chairs for helping us to realize Holly’s vision and continue to make a difference for survivors of cancer.

The non-profit was established in 2004 in honor of Holly Harwood Skolkin and now in her memory by Dr. Franklin and Cindi Rose. The Holly Rose Ribbon Foundation is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization that provides 100% free reconstructive surgery to un-insured post-cancer patients. The HRRF offers grief counseling, college scholarships to cancer survivors or to those who have lost a parent to cancer, breast reconstructive surgeries at no-cost to the survivor, and arts in medicine activities for children currently undergoing cancer treatment at area hospitals. During the ten-year history of the Foundation there have been no salaries, both Cindi and her husband Franklin have volunteered their services and time to the organization as a whole.  All funds collected through this event go for the many costs associated in providing reconstructive surgery like nursing care, hospital stays and anesthesiologist costs.

To continue to provide these life-altering services to future patients we look to serve, including individuals, families, and children alike, we need your support to assist in furthering our mission. If you are unable to attend or participate in our events and fundraisers, you can always donate any amount at any time by visiting our website: http://hollyroseribbon.com/donations/ – every $10.00 helps us to help those in need of our services ~ Thank you..
