Celebrate Her – A Three Day Celebration of Strength

Her Sanctuary and Her Story have embarked upon a three-day fundraiser, supporting Metavivor, an organization supporting metastatic breast cancer research and support. “This year’s fundraiser is extra important for us, after loosing my aunt last October to metastatic breast cancer,” said entrepreneur/organizer Ciara Morreale. “We also are bringing in the designer of our bra line, Ana Ono, for a trunk show and meet and greet, a line of lingerie that is designed specifically for those who have undergone breast surgeries during or after breast cancer. She is a survivor, and just showed in Fashion Week in February. We are supporting local women owned businesses that are providing amazing services to help women not only with breast cancer, but women in general.

Diagnosed with Infiltrative Ductal Carcinoma at 27, Dana Donofree founded AnaOno out of her own necessity and desire for pretty, sexy, beautiful lingerie. Dana will be at the event, offering complimentary bra fittings, and her full line of products will be available for purchase.” – Her Sanctuary
