Beauty Through Cancer focuses on celebrating a woman’s inner and outer beauty both during and after her battle with cancer. The volunteer-based organization offers many programs and services—all at no charge—including a give-and-take program that provides wigs, hats, scarves and jewelry to any woman going through cancer treatments; interactive support groups with speakers from different medical, beauty, therapeutic and fitness backgrounds; socials every month; and more.

Founder and President of Beauty Through Cancer Earleen Bennett says, “This journey has changed who I am, I love what I do every day and I feel we really make a difference … . I am surrounded by strong, amazing and beautiful women. We all draw strength from one another.”

There will be a wine-tasting fundraiser for the organization Saturday, Sept. 12, from 3 to 6 p.m. at WineStyles in Gerber Village, 10 Crispin Court, Suite 102, Asheville. In addition to the tasting, there will be a fashion show, music, food by Chef in Motion and raffle prizes. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door, and are available at WineStyles or the offices of Beauty Through Cancer, 131 McDowell St., Asheville.
