Brazilian Butterfly hair removal franchises present over $28,000 to ovarian cancer research
Hair removal franchise Brazilian Butterfly has announced that it recently presented a cheque for over $28,000 to Ovarian Cancer Australia.
The money was raised by Brazilian Butterfly beauty salon franchises at their annual Queen of the Lake fun run and walk at Albert Park in February.
Founded in 2001 by people directly affected by the disease, Ovarian Cancer Australia (OCA) is a national not-for-profit organisation dedicated to ovarian cancer awareness, support and research.
Brazilian Butterfly joined the fight against ovarian cancer late last year when the hair removal franchises announced a corporate partnership with OCA. As a result of this partnership, OCA merchandise will now be sold all year round in Brazilian Butterfly salons.
Brazilian Butterfly Founder Tanya Farrar says it was important for the brand that they aligned themselves corporately with an organisation that promoted women's health.
"As a specialist in body care, it was important for our salons to feel a close bond with the organisation that we are supporting long term," Tanya explains.11.05.2012
