Dear Miami Fashionistas, time to spend money for a cure.  This week welcomes Jody’s Couture for the Cancer Cure.  A fantastic event I just heard about and it is happening THIS SUNDAY 3/25/2012 at the Miami Beach Convention Center.  Jody’s Couture for the Cancer Cure is a fashion frenzy, sample sale meets fundraiser, meets vintage sale!  What to expect? How about Louis and Gucci and Manolo… OH MY!  Almost everything that is selling will be $10, $20, or $30 with a few exceptions.  The best part…. ALL PROCEEDS go to benefit women’s Cancer Research at the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.  Advance tickets are a $10 donation and can be purchased at www.sylvester.org. Tickets can also be purchased at the door on Sunday.  For more information visit www.jodyscoutureforcancer.com, or call the Sylvester development office at 305-243-9088.  I’ll be there… will YOU?
