Tigerlily Pajama Glam Event Empowers Cancer Awareness Amongst Youth

Saturday evening in downtown DC had tons of women and children walking around in pajamas and jewelry. They were all attending the 1st Annual Tigerlily Foundation Pajama Glam Party at the Embassy Suites DC Convention Center hotel.

Guests enjoyed music from DJ Neekola, pamper stations, glam stations, sweet treat stations, kid bands, wellness activities, celebrity appearances and much more.   The idea for the event came from Tigerlily’s Founder Maimah Karmo, 10-year old daughter Noelle Karmo, who wanted to design an event to attract and educate young girls about their breast and to raise awareness towards the younger generation.  The event was fitted with a pink runway featuring a fashion show from "My Bougie Baby" and a photo booth where guests could memoralize their time at the event.

The Mistress of Ceremonies for the event was the Miss District of Columbia 2012 Allyn Rose, who has been a long time breast cancer advocate after losing her mom at a young age from the disease. Other special guests in attendance included Miss District of Columbia 2011 Ashley Boalch, America’s Miss District of Columbia 2012 Sarah Hillware and Miss Wyoming 2012 Mary David.  In addition, Marshall Moneymaker (aka the Pink Fireman) and Founder of For Three Sisters made a special appearance at the event. 

The Tigerlily Foundation is a non-profit that raises money for young women 15-40 years old for support before, during and after breast cancer. Some services that theTigerlily foundation support include education, chemotherapy buddy programs, buddy bag programs, financial assistance, meals, life management support, and empowerment services. The Pajama Glam Party’s funds educates women on breast cancer and how to be their own best advocates.
