Boobyball – Rethinking Breast Cancer

Thanks to those who entered. A winner has been chosen. 

For those of you unfamiliar with this event or with the organization, Rethink Breast Cancer’s mission is to empower young people worldwide who are concerned about and affected by breast cancer.

This organization is the first ever Canadian charity to target those who are 40 and under in an effort to foster a new generation of young and influential breast cancer supporters; infuse sass and style into the cause; and, most importantly, respond to the unique needs of young women going through it.

By taking a breakthrough approach to all aspects of breast cancer – education, resources, advocacy, community engagement, and fundraising – Rethink is thinking differently about breast cancer. More information about them can be found at their website – www.rethinkbreastcancer.com

The event in question was founded in 2002 by a group of young women in support of their friend, Sarah O’Regan, who at 23 was diagnosed with an aggressive and advanced breast cancer. Boobyball is now one of the most anticipated, coveted and high profile fundraising events for young philanthropists in Ottawa, Calgary, Toronto and Winnipeg.

Over the past 14 years, this event has raised over 3.8 million dollars for Rethink Breast Cancer. This year the Ball is being held at the Fort Garry Hotel in downtown Winnipeg. The theme is “Paradise City” and encourages all those attending to “Shake their tail feathers” and to “dress in swinging jungle attire”. If you don’t know what that is, they have a pintrest page for inspiration.

“The 15th annual Boobyball fundraiser will immerse guests into the wild for an evening of electric sunsets, lush libations, majestic beats and tiki treats all entwined in the most sizzling soiree of the year!”

So, why am I writing about this? The good people at Beau’s All Natural Brewing have been incredibly generous to support this wonderful event here in Winnipeg and around the country.

They have given me two tickets to give away to this phenomenal event and I’m putting it out to you folks in the form of a contest. Either follow and retweet my tweet on Twitter or follow this blog and post a comment to be entered into the contest. I’ll be drawing for these very soon.
