Annual International Dragon Boats Race for the Cure!

Here is the "special" fairy I designed for The International Dragon Boat Race for the Cure, which is hosted in Windsor ON. Canada. Tara Chalmers, captain of the "Wings of Hope" dragon boat team had contacted me through my Etsy shop to see if I would be interested in donating one of my creations to this event. Finding a cure for breast cancer is very near and dear to my heart, as I lost a dear niece from breast cancer, at the young age of 37. Below is a brief description, taken from the official web site of this event, describing what they are all about.

The FDJ International Dragon Boats for the Cure festival takes place July 18 - July 20, 2008 in Windsor, ON. Paddlers from Canada and the United States will participate in this event to raise funds to fight breast cancer. French Dressing Jeanswear is proud to sponsor the International Dragon Boats for the Cure festival. Company President Len Miller says, "Dragon boat paddling provides tangible benefits to breast cancer patients and survivors, including emotional support, physical activity, and the opportunity for BCS teams to bring home money to their local cancer centres. It is an event that truly celebrates wellness for women.
