"Breast Friends 4 Life" Press Release
CUSTOM DESIGNED BRACELET BY ORIANA LAMARCA DESIGNS
WILL COMMEMORATE THE 2017 SUSAN G. KOMEN RACE FOR THE CURE
RED BANK, NJ, AUGUST 11, 2017 – Oriana Lamarca, an international jewelry designer of one-of-a-kind semi-precious gemstone bracelets and other fashion accessories, and founder of Oriana Lamarca Designs, has designed a custom rose quartz bracelet featuring a silver pavé bow to support the 2017 Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. Proceeds from the sale of this bracelet and all monies raised by the Breast Friends 4 Life, a local NJ team participating in their 6th Race for the Cure, will go directly to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
The Breast Friends 4L Team led by Andraya Puglio, a longtime friend of Oriana’s, will join over a thousand breast cancer survivors, among them, Andraya’s mother and more than thirteen thousand New Yorkers in Central Park on Sunday, September 10, 2017. In the past 27 years, over 400,000 people have raced in the NYC Komen Race for the Cure, raising over $80 million to fund local programs that help thousands of women and their families and, fund national research to find a cure.
“This disease hit home for us as our mom, Jo Ann Puglio, our aunts, and others close to us, have been affected by breast cancer,” Andraya stated. “It's with the help from people like our dear friend, Oriana, and other fundraisers, that we are making a difference in the lives of many survivors and closer to finding a cure. We are thankful we get to walk to honor these strong survivors, especially our mother.” she added.
Oriana selected a rose quartz stone because pink is the international symbol of breast cancer awareness but also because rose quartz is symbolic of unconditional love. “I’m happy to be able to help Andraya and her family by creating a bracelet to commemorate and support the Komen’s 2017 Race for a Cure, a truly worthy cause. We all need to do our part to end this deadly disease,” said Oriana.
The bracelet will be featured in the “Bracelets for a Cause” section on www.orianalamarca.com
