So when Gettiye moved from Minneapolis, Minn., to the Bay Area, she decided to keep that tradition going. On Saturday, Feb. 24 (4-7pm) at the IDESST Sausalito Portuguese Cultural Center, Gettiye is hosting the Breast Cancer Awareness Rendezvous Fashion show, a gathering of that will showcase the latest wares found in Mill Valley boutiques like Branded, Carolina and even kid-centric Sprout San Francisco – all to benefit the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center.
Gettiye, who attended the Aveda Institute in Minneapolis and runs her own Mobile Salon E, says that while breast cancer hasn’t directly impacted her or her family, “I’m so lucky to be 100 percent healthy, and it’s sad to see so many people who don’t have that opportunity – I want to help any way I can. It’s a lot of work for me to organize a fashion show event like this, but at the end, its worth it!”
