An exclusive evening of Fashion, Art and Philanthropy

Mary Schmidt Amons, cast member of Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of DC” and founder of Labels for Love, created Modus Union this one-of-a-kind event to collaborate our active philanthropic, political, and artistic communities within the Nation’s Capital.

Modus Union was formed from two words that represent unification with positive intent. The Washington, DC area is the leading world capital and we are seeing the combination of artistic talent and a youthful energy not seen since the Kennedy era. The time has come to collaborate with these disparate groups of influence to showcase opportunities in an effort to make a positive social and philanthropic impact by maximizing our impact on the Nation’s Capital and its global influence. Labels For Love beneficiary partner this year is Fran Drescher and her Cancer Schmancer Foundation. Cancer Schmancer is dedicated to saving women’s lives through early detection and prevention of cancer. As you may know, Fran Drescher is a 10-year uterine cancer survivor and a leading advocate for the early detection of women’s cancer. Fran and her Foundation are continuing to make a major global impact, through sharing her personal story as well as educating women on the causes of cancers and the importance and methods of early detection

Art Whino is joining forces with the Modus Union Salon and curating a special exhibition and live painting session with a select group of artists. Cancer has touched the lives of this particular group as they themselves or their loved ones are currently battling with or recovering from the disease. Instead of allowing this to defeat their spirits, these artists have shown their resilience by using this hardship as creative energy. This is expressed on the canvas as an intensified conveyance of their stylistic approach. In embracing the feelings that come with the word cancer they are able to fight back by empowering themselves through the strength of their work.
