CEW’S Beauty of Giving Luncheon Honors Qurate’s Mike George
CEW and Cancer in Careers honored Mike George, President & CEO of Qurate Retail Group which launched Beauty with Benefits on QVC and HSN with CEW. This annual broadcast put beauty and benevolence on the map by offering QVC and HSN customers the opportunity to shop for prestige products, while helping people with cancer get the workplace support they need. 80% of the purchase price of the donated merchandise benefits Cancer and Careers and its free programs and resources.
The Beauty of Giving Luncheon is an annual event celebrating philanthropy in the beauty industry and drawing an audience of 600+ industry professionals and leaders. The longest running of all CEW events, the Beauty of Giving Luncheon is one of the organization’s most popular, offering the opportunity to support a good cause while networking with colleagues as well. The high point of the luncheon is hearing from a survivor who has personally benefitted from services CEW’s Cancer & Careers provides. The event also included a live auction filled with luxurious trips and other one-of-a-kind experiences.
Cancer and Careers empowers and educates people with cancer to thrive in their workplaces by providing expert advice, interactive tools and educational events—all free-of-charge. The Cosmetic Executive Women Foundation launched Cancer and Careers in 2001 after being inspired by CEW Board members who faced the challenges of balancing work after a cancer diagnosis.
