After Eight Years Music Continues to Help Raise Awareness and Educate Women About Breast Cancer

MINNEAPOLIS (July 27, 2009)  Every year, the Breast Cancer Awareness Association holds The Breast Party in Town, a one-night event to help raise funds and awareness to help educate Minnesota women about all aspects of breast cancer and survivorship.  On Friday, August 21, 2009, the BCEA will hold their 8th Annual Breast Party at Epic Nightclub in downtown Minneapolis.  100% of the night’s proceeds are raised to help fund a one-day educational seminar held in October, a month dedicated to breast cancer awareness.

“We’re very excited this year,” states Ann Harris, eight year survivor and Co-Founder of the BCEA. “After seven years, we really feel like we’re making a big impact and we’re hoping to maximize that impact this year.”  This year, the Breast Party will feature music by Alison Scott, TheRemnants and SelectThree.

The Breast Party will open its doors at 5:00 pm with appetizers, drinks, music and a silent auction to help raise money to educate, empower and encourage women affected by breast cancer and to help support their Annual Living with Breast Cancer educational seminar in October.
