(3BLMedia/theCSRfeed) Boston, MA - October 12, 2010 - All4One Alliance, a partnership of The Breast Form Fund, CancerCare, Cancer Resource Foundation, and Luminous Breast Cancer Foundation, invites Boston-area residents to join us for an evening of art, fashion, and music to benefit All4One Alliance and its services for underserved women living with and beyond breast cancer. The 2011 Show Us Your BRA!™ Calendar Launch Party will take place on Tuesday, October, 19, 2010 from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. at The Liberty Hotel, 215 Charles Street, in Beacon Hill. Tickets cost $75 and are available at www.all4onealliance.org/launchparty.
The Launch Party features the debut of the one-of-a-kind bra-art of those “bratistes” and “celebratistes” who contributed to the 2011 Show Us Your Bra™ Calendar. Celebrities whose art will be on display include India.Arie, Emme, Rebecca Minkoff, and Diane Birch. Sometime humorous, sometimes stunningly beautiful, sometimes both, the cleverly-named pieces inspire the viewer and raise awareness about the importance of post-mastectomy apparel and prostheses in maintaining the health and well-being of women recovering from and living with breast cancer.
Other highlights of the evening include an exclusive fashion show of the new Amoena Mia bra line, a revolutionary new bra line, which responds to body temperature, as well as a performance by former American Idol contestant, Anwar Robinson. Robinson, a breast cancer advocate whose art is featured in the 2011 calendar, will perform “Chosen,” a song from his new album Transparency, which he wrote in honor of people who have won and lost their battles with breast cancer.
The $75 ticket, which benefits All4One Alliance, includes PINK YOUR DRINK specialty cocktails by Chambord® and all-new Chambord® Flavored Vodka, hors d’oeuvres, and your copy of the 2011 Show Us Your BRA!™ Calendar.
In addition to being an important fundraising event, the Launch Party will be an uplifting evening that brings together breast cancer survivors, artists, and celebrities in support of underserved women living with and beyond breast cancer. Attendees will learn more about All4One Alliance and the vital work its partner organizations do to provide women with dignity and compassion as they recover from breast cancer.
“Too often, after breast cancer surgery, women face monetary barriers as they seek breast prostheses and post-mastectomy bras and garments,” said Karleen Habin, Co-Chair for All4One, Research Nurse Specialist, and Clinical Supervisor Breast Oncology Research Program at Massachusetts General Hospital. “These products can improve a woman’s quality of life both physically and emotionally, and all women deserve access to the dignity they provide.”
The evening is made possible by the generous support of its sponsors – Chambord®, Horizon Beverage Company, and The Liberty Hotel.
