ash&dans Zumba-ing this Sunday for Power of Pink!

 Hi everyone,

Happy Friday! Doing anything fun this weekend? We have a great event this weekend that we are psyched for! This Sunday, May 6th, is the first annual multi-generational Zumba in the fight against breast cancer. 

The Zumba event is planned, organized, and executed by Power of Pink! (POP!), formerly Tickled Pink: Teens for the Cure, a group of NY teens and their mothers who seek to bring support and awareness to others who share the journey of life after breast cancer diagnosis. POP! empowers young women to become advocates for themselves and for others in the fight against breast cancer. POP! celebrates life in honor, celebration and memory of all those who have fought their battle with breast cancer. If you are in New York City, you should definitely come! 

POP! was conceived by my sister, Niki Dankner, and mother, Iris Dankner, in response to my mother's diagnosis with breast cancer. Thanks to early detection, proper treatment, and compassionate care, my mom is now a 15-year breast cancer survivor and counting. Early detection saves lives, thus we are committed to bringing awareness and practice of self-examination and mammography through education and facilitated support. 

We recognizes that breast cancer knows no age, race or color and believe that the equality of care for all women, both medical and emotional, is paramount. Not all women have the funds or means to get the necessary treatment to battle this disease. Thus, the proceeds raised from the Power of Pink and Tickled HOT Pink events will benefit Harold P. Freeman Breast Examination Center of Harlem (BECH), an outreach program of Sloan-Kettering Memorial. The Mission of BECH is to provide breast cancer screening services for all, to improve early detection and to reduce mortality to breast and gynecological cancers.

In other news, we love seeing ash&dans on our fans' Polyvore pages. We particularly loved these two that put together the looks that Jessica Alba pulled off with her ash&dans infinity scarf. If you have any Polyvore pages you want to share, don't hesitate to send them to us- we'd love to see them and might even post them!
