Hela Salon & Spa hosted the official launch party announcing the partnership of Shoot for Change + the Capital Breast Care Center on Wednesday. The partnership, named the Gift of Life Project, is working together to provide mammograms and breast cancer treatment for women regardless of their ability to pay. Held in the intimate setting of the Hela foyer, champagne and macaroons and chocolates were served as guests mingled and looked through the various ways to donate to this amazing cause.

About the Gift of Life Project
Every woman that comes into CBCC to receive treatment will be automatically enrolled into a monthly drawing. The winner each month will receive a personal fashion shoot with Shoot for Change’s Walter Grio, as well as a complimentary salon or spa service from Hela.
“The mission of Capital Breast Care Center is to provide comprehensive, culturally appropriate breast cancer screening services and to promote health and wellness to women in the DC metropolitan area, regardless of their ability to pay.” Every insured woman who comes to CBCC for a mammogram, enables an uninsured woman to receive breast health services and treatment.
