My Sister's Arms Gala at South Fulton Arts Center 2

My Sister’s Arms is an organization dedicated to serving women who have overcome insurmountable odds. Since 2010, the organization has facilitated programs to support women who are survivors of breast and ovarian cancer and domestic violence.

Their flagship “Caring is Beautiful” program provides a day of pampering for domestic violence victims and cancer survivors. In addition to complimentary facials, manicures, pedicures and massages, among a variety of other services, these women are also treated to refreshments, entertainment and hand-selected gifts.

Other events hosted by My Sister’s Arms include the recent “An Evening of Elegance” at the South Fulton Arts Center, featuring artists from the Metro Atlanta area. Award-winning spoken word artist Tamika “GeorgiaMe” Harper gave a riveting performance of her poem “Ghetto Bell,” and local favorite Westlake High School String Ensemble led by Kimbraly Grimes performed a variety of classical selections. The headline event of the night was Orchestra Noir, Atlanta’s premier all African-American Orchestra led by Maestro Jason Rodgers. During their performance, they encouraged women to “beat” cancer with a rendition of Michael Jackson’s classic tune, “Beat it.”

Event proceeds support the expansion of programs for the upcoming 2017 year. The next scheduled pamper day for cancer survivors is Jan. 21, 2017 at Celestial Spa located on Cascade Rd in Atlanta.
