DermOne's GOTTA HAT IT
May is Melanoma Month, and Dallas/Fort Worth celebrities are joining DermOne to fight the most common form of cancer in the U.S. -- skin cancer -- with the inaugural DERMONE’S GOTTA HAT IT benefiting Dallas-based AIM at Melanoma, the largest non-profit international organization focused on melanoma research, education, legislation, and awareness.
Local personalities, fashion designers and trend-setters were given an oversized, floppy sun hat as a blank canvas to express their own uniqueness and (hopefully) cause a bidding war online May 1-31. Proceeds benefit AIM at Melanoma, and DermOne has vowed to match the highest bid (up to $500). DermOne, a national provider of choice in the practice of dermatology, presents these initiatives in an effort to bring awareness and much-needed research funds to melanoma - the deadliest form of skin cancer.
Hats may be viewed at the 10th Annual AIM for the Cure Melanoma Walk on Saturday, May 3, at Bachman Lake in Dallas. The 3.3-mile walk or run is a suggested $50 donation with proceeds benefiting AIM at Melanoma.
