Erica Rose, Rose Petals Director
University of Houston Law School graduate Erica Rose splits her time between Houston and Los Angeles as the director of the Rose Petals – a division of the Holly Rose Ribbon Foundation, focusing on volunteerism to assist the un-insured with cancer of all ages & both genders, by organizing events targeted to teens and young professionals in their 20’s and 30’s.
Reality TV Star Erica Rose is probably most well known for her appearances on television shows such as “The Bachelor: Rome” and “Bachelor Pad” among many others. Erica, known to her television admirers, for her quick wit was awarded the Golden Rose Award for humor on the Katie Couric Show.
Erica has her law degree, and currently takes time to do volunteer work, fundraising, appearances, and is working on a book about her journey through the world of reality television and the healing process required in its aftermath.
She is also heading up The Rose Petals
in various cities, for people in the 20’s and 30’s to be active in the non-profit world. Both ventures are due to her inspiration from her aunt, Holly Harwood Skolkin
, who passed away after a 15 year courageous battle with stage 4 cancer. Rose Petals is a division of The Holly Rose Ribbon Foundation
501 (c) (3). Erica’s aunt Holly felt that her life was prolonged due to the ability to help others with cancer while she herself struggled with the illness, she took it as a health opportunity, and gave blessings during her entire life.
Young people involved with Rose Petals who want to do their part and contribute to the misson of the Holly Rose Ribbon Foundation perform acts of compassion across the United States and volunteer their services in many ways; such as education, visiting & entertaining children and adults in hospitals with outreach in various ways with art projects and music, and by cooking & bringing food to those affected by cancer and their families, who often appreciate these benefits beyond just financial assistance alone. Reality star, Erica Rose, attends, and helps to organize events in stores, boutiques, and schools that raise funds for the non- insured with cancer, and for research in cancer prevention.
In addition to making a difference in the lives of breast cancer survivors and those affected by critical illness, Rose Petals also provides an exciting networking and philanthropic outlet for teens, young adults, and professionals in their twenties & thirties. Our volunteer opportunities also provide an environment for people of different generations to work together to help our communities in different cities, developing mentor-ship, respect, friendship, and leadership skills while helping those who need it the most.
Our Rose Petals serve & support the Holly Rose Ribbon’s continuing efforts to aid uninsured & under-insured men, women, and children with critical illness and cancer. Inspired by the love from Erica’s Aunt, Holly Harwood Skolkin. Holly’s example proved that those who have goals, support, and prayer, battle their physical health opportunity with longer lives. By making those feel “whole”, your support has helped with education, research, prevention of cancer, outreach, & alternative treatments when requested, world-wide. Holly’s examples of giving love to family and community while battling illness has made a lasting example to the world of living your highest path. Your continuing support has made this vision possible, of assisting those who have cancer and other illness stay well longer.
The love of the Rose Petals and Holly Rose Ribbon Foundation, helps patients want to live. We look forward to your support and want to thank you in advance for your consideration.
