Local cancer survivors will have the opportunity to get a free makeover from Sephora inside JC Penney in the Mall at Johnson City.

The event, “Get Cute for a Cause,” will be held on Saturday, Oct. 20, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and survivors are encouraged to call the store at 282-6606 Ext.390 to set up an appointment because spots will fill up quickly. In addition to the makeover, attendees will also be offered beauty tips and receive a free gift.

“We’re so excited to offer this opportunity to cancer survivors in our community,” said Tracy Bailey, beauty leader at Sephora. “This is one small thing that we can do to make the day of a cancer survivor or cancer patient who is currently undergoing treatment.”

The store will partner with the American Cancer Society with the event and Society staff will be on hand to offer assistance and information to patients as well as to help educate women about the importance of yearly mammograms.

For more information about the event or to schedule an appointment, call 282-6606 Ext. 390.

The American Cancer Society combines an unyielding passion with nearly a century of experience to save lives and end suffering from cancer. As a global grassroots force of more than three million volunteers, the ACS fights for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. The ACS saves lives by helping people stay well by preventing cancer or detecting it early; helping people get well by being there for them during and after a cancer diagnosis; by finding cures through investment in groundbreaking discovery; and by fighting back by rallying lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and by rallying communities worldwide to join the fight. As the nation’s largest non-governmental investor in cancer research, contributing more than $3.4 billion, the ACS turns what it knows about cancer into what the agency does. As a result, more than 11 million people in America who have had cancer and countless more who have avoided it will be celebrating birthdays this year.
