MINNEAPOLIS (July 7, 2008) 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 Thursday, August 14, 2008, the BCEA will hold their 7th 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, seven year survivor and Co-Founder of the BCEA. “After six 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 G.B. Leighton. Leighton and his band have been a regular within the Twin Cities music scene for over 10 years and is excited to be a part of the Breast Party this year. “It’s important for me to give back to the community when I can,” states Leighton, who was born and raised within the Twin Cities, “and I’m glad I can help support the BCAA, a local Minnesota organization, in their mission.”
The Breast Party will open its doors at 6:30 pm with appetizers, drinks 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. And at 8 pm, G.B. Leighton will do what they do best, rock the house. For more information and advance tickets, visit www.bcaamn.org.
