Dolce Mamas Walking Together To Defeat Breast Cancer

Our fundraiser at Salon Amarti, 1322 Prince St, Alexandria, VA 703-535-8100 was a huge success, raising more than $1,900 for the Avon Foundation's crusade against breast cancer! Salon Amarti opened on Sunday February 24, 2008 with their full menu of salon and spa services and donated fifty-percent of the day's sales to the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer through the Dolce Mama's team.
