Glamming with Gilda

2021 Date TBD

 

Back by popular demand, Glamming with Gilda gives women in the Muscatine community an opportunity to celebrate being a woman by socializing, shopping and pampering themselves with other women in the area. Muscatine divas don’t need an excuse to pamper themselves… they can do so while supporting a good cause!

Funds raised at the Glamming with Gilda Benefit will provide support to people with cancer and their families right here in Muscatine. Among other services, the funds raised will provide:

  • Support groups both for someone with a diagnosis and their family members.
  • A survivorship program which helps people deal with the emotional, physical, and nutritional consequences of a cancer diagnosis.
  • Educational workshops such as Coping with the Cost of Care, Side Effects of Treatments, and New Discoveries in Treatment

Muscatine County leads Iowa in the highest rate of breast cancer, including a rising level of late stage diagnosis. The State Health Registry of Iowa recently projected 235 new cancer diagnoses in Muscatine County, placing Muscatine in the top 15 counties for highest projected number of new cancers in the state.
