At the inception of the Getaway Girls, Inc. journey, we decided that it is important to have a place in the company focused on “Giving Back,” specifically, supporting and encouraging Women and Girls. From this idea, our hashtag – #GirlyWolfpack was born; the belief that every girl needs to surround herself with a core group / pack of women to support and uplift her. And so a sisterhood began.
Early on we decided to host an annual event, that would support Women or Children charity, calling attention to a cause we felt could use our help. Initially, we thought that each year we would pick a different cause to help… until we met Marcy Lopez and were introduced to the devastating world of Ovarian Cancer.
With no dedicated test, cure, or real attention being paid to this DEADLY disease, Getaway Girls, Inc. has decided to make Ovarian Cancer the cause we fight for… Until There’s A Cure! Annually we host our Turn Up The TEAL Gala And FUNdraiser where all of the proceeds raised are donated toward the fight against Ovarian Cancer! This is a Party With a Purpose and Every Penny Raised MAKES A DIFFERENCE!
We hope that by Turning Up the TEAL with us, people leave the event INSPIRE, AWARE, EDUCATED, and reminded that Not all Cancer is Pink!
