Health and Beauty Fair for Charity
The Pink Pamper is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing support for those who are battling some form of cancer, medical hair loss, or the affects of physical abuse. We have all lost someone we love to cancer, or know someone who has been affected by it. The thread of cancer connects us all. We are asking you to help us help those in need. Our main event of ‘Pampering Women to Help Women’ raises funds to benefit several charities that support patients directly – the funds we raise do not support research. This is an annual health and beauty fair with product vendors, auction drawings, and beauty professionals volunteering their time to provide haircuts, manicures, massages, and many other health and beauty services for a fraction of their normal price.
Every year is better than the year before – this is a fun-filled way to spend a “Girl’s Afternoon” of pampering with your girlfriends and your sisters, mothers, aunts, nieces. The most popular and most meaningful event of the day is the “Patient Extreme Makeover, with the reveal at the end of the day. It is special moments like these that inspire us and keep us going.
Women’s Charities We Support
We support several organizations that provide patient assistance outside of the realm of health insurance. For example, did you know that health insurance doesn’t cover the cost (and they’re not cheap!) of a wig for those who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy or other health problems? This is a major issue for those who are struggling to make ends meet while fighting an expensive battle for their health.
Ladies Hospital Aid Society – Orchid Fund. The LHAS Orchid Fund benefits individuals who experience hair loss due to medical conditions, by providing support and financial assistance toward hair replacement options. The most recent member to join The Pink Pamper’s Board of Directors is Debbie Mancuso, owner of Hair Enhancements of Pittsburgh, which provides wigs for the Orchid Fund.
The UPMC CancerCenter Patient Assistance Fund. This fund assists cancer patients with the extraordinary costs that often accompany a diagnosis of cancer outside the realm of medical insurance.
Domestic Violence Services of Southwestern Pennsylvania (DVSSP). We collect used cell phones to donate to this organization, which is supported by funding from Verizon’s HopeLine program. Additionally, we are striving to provide a basket of personal care needs and new pajamas and slippers for each woman coming into the shelter for services.

We are committed to giving back to the community throughout the year, and this is an event that has special significance for me, since I lost both of my parents to cancer. We want to help other families who may be going through the difficulties that we went through, and are happy The Pink Pamper gives us the opportunity to do that.
The Pink Pamper is one of the CancerCenters’ largest community charity supporters.
Recognizing organizations that work to improve women’s health, The PINK Pamper has regularly committed a portion of their efforts to those affected by domestic violence. Through their annual donation of unrestricted funds, we are not only able to assist survivors in their quest for safety and security but are also able to educate our community in an effort to make “ home” a safe place for future generations!
