Hollywood CA, (Hollywood Today) 2013/2/8 – “The Date for the Cure started as a great idea that Jerry Wayne approached Komen LA with last year,” says Susan G. Komen executive director Mark Pilon. “Date for the Cure is a unique event and offers the opportunity for everyone and anyone to have a dream date with a beautiful reigning beauty queen.” The event is right after Valentine’s Day and exemplifies the romance of dating for a great cause. I believe that Date for the Cure is going to turn into a tremendous tradition for Komen because celebrating romance will always be a great survivor.”
Date for the Cure is the Susan G Koman lead up to the Race for a Cure. “Race for the Cure that we will be doing on March 23rd at Dodger Stadium is our main event each and every year,” says Pilon. “We do that race so that we can raise enough money to continue to help the women of Los Angeles. We are proud that 75% of the money that we raise goes straight back to helping the women in our communities so anytime that another group of folks honor us by doing an event for our cause, it’s thrilling.”
Date for the Cure is hosted by actor & comedian Kevin Nealon the event includes dinner and entertainment. Here’s just a peek at the entertainment: Musical performed by Josh Krajcik from X Factor and Paul McDonald from American Idol. A special dance number by Peta Murgatroyd who’s on Dancing with the Star. And a fashion show by A.Ché Swimwear. On the runway will be Miss California USA Mabelynn Capeluj, Miss California Teen USA Cassidy Wolf & Miss District of Columbia Allyn Rose. Also at the event will be Cheryl Burke from Dancing with the Stars, reigning Miss Universe Olivia Culpo, reigning Miss USA Nana Meriwether, and more.
