Wigs for Women (WFW) was first organized by a small group of cancer survivors and their friends. They recognized a need and dedicated themselves to finding a new way to help. The result was a 2012 benefit to raise money for individuals who were experiencing hair loss due to cancer treatments. Over the past several years, the annual benefit has more than doubled in size and WFW has established nonprofit status in the State of MN.
What does WFW do?
- Hosts an annual fundraising benefit in February. The proceeds are used to fund the voucher program which helps provide wigs to those in need.
- The Board of Directors holds monthly meetings to plan and prepare for the benefit.
- We are passionate about increasing public awareness of hair loss issues, and identifying new and innovative ways to better serve the community.
Over the past five years, progress has been made toward the development and awareness of WFW, but there is so much more to accomplish. WFW hosts an annual benefit to fundraise for the St. Cloud Hospital Breast Center Enhancement Program. The evening is filled with music, laughter, excitement and camaraderie. People enjoy dressing up with props and wigs at the Photo Booth, make their best bet to win raffle items/gift baskets, eat delicious food and desserts from Christine’s Sweet Confections, and listen to live entertainment provided by local artist, Anthony Perry.
I invite you to follow Wigs for Women on Facebook to learn more about this cause and the annual benefit.
Thank you for your generosity and your time!
