Celebrity emcee Katherine Whaley of ABC Channel 13 will present a check from Alira Salon & Spa to the Holly Rose Ribbon Foundation and introduce the ladies after their makeovers.
“October is annual national Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which gives me a chance to give back to the community which has become my home,” says Venezuela born Silva. “I have been closely touched by breast cancer as my aunt and two close friends have died from this terrible disease.”
Silva has set up a fundraising page at Eventbrite here: (https://www.eventbrite.com/o/escarle-silva-15274202182) for the $25 event tickets and a GoFundMe https://www.gofundme.com/womenfightingcancer-makeover-day to collect donations to the Holly Rose Ribbon Foundation, a non-profit organization that assists breast cancer survivors with reconstructive surgery.
Over the past five years, Silva has graciously treated over 120 cancer survivors with complimentary makeovers at her salon. Two years ago, she received a proclamation on October 13 as “Escarle Silva Day” from the mayor of Houston.
