Gal to Gal Walk – Go TEAM Boutique Cafe!

October 21st, 2009

Boutique Cafe is a very proud sponsor this year of the Gal to Gal Virtual Walk! Join Emily and Daria as we virtually walk across the country (via the DesignHer Gals nifty website) raising money for the Gal to Gal Foundation. Bottom line, they do GREAT things such as provide funds to fulfill the dreams and wishes of women suffering with Stage IV Breast Cancer. Just read these incredible wishes they are hoping to fullfill during this year’s walk, and I guarantee you’ll want to be a part of this touching venture.

For as little as $5 you can design your very own virtual gal, and start her walking. Don’t forget to join TEAM Boutique Cafe!! (simply add Boutique Cafe in the team name field when you create your gal, come back here and let us know you joined our team). It’s easy and it’s fun! The joy you feel in knowing that your dollars are helping make dreams come true for cancer patients, well it’s magic.

Gal to Gal Virtual Walk – Tribute to Dorit Shapiro

October 17th, 2008

“To our dear friends –
It is with great sadness that I must let you know that our Gal to Gal Foundation President, Dorit Shapiro, lost her brave battle to Stage IV breast cancer yesterday. For those of you who have not had the pleasure of meeting Dorit – I can tell you that she was an incredible woman who believed passionately in the purpose behind the Gal to Gal Foundation.

As you may know, this year’s virtual walk hopes to raise $250,000 by asking each and every one of us to take 5 minutes and $5 and go to www.galtogalwalk.org and create your virtual walker. It is our hope to grant hundreds of wishes for Stage IV breast cancer patients and their families this holiday season. With your help we can!

Dorit’s wish was not for herself. It was that we make this goal and that no woman living with Stage IV should feel alone in this journey. Please join Dorit’s virtual self and all of us today in her honor!

Here is a tribute to Dorit where you can listen to her own words spoken 1 week ago (!) as we kicked off this event. Unfortunately after this speech she took a turn for the worst. She will be missed by her family and friends very much! Dorit just turned 38 years old with 2 daughters (ages 4 and 8). Please help us grant Dorit’s wish.
Watch now!
With hope in my heart!
