Beyond Pink Designer Bra Fashion Show and Auction October 9
Each year there are over 200,000 women diagnosed with breast cancer in the US and sadly over 40,000 lose the battle to the disease. Nearly half of those women are under the age of 50, which is why it is so important for women 20 and older to get regular exams with thermography. Thermography offers the ability to assess risk levels and possible trouble areas and empowers women to make the appropriate lifestyle changes to help maintaining their health.
For the last 5 years, the primary source of funding for this life saving procedure has been the annual Beyond Pink Designer Bra Fashion Show and Auction. The event has successfully raised thousands of dollars with 100% of net proceeds staying here in the Spokane area. This year, the event will be held on Friday, October 9 from 5 to 9pm at the Spokane Convention Center. The $50 entry fee includes complimentary wine, hors d'oeuvres, a chance to bid on unique silent auction items and access to the live auction featuring one of a kind bras by local designers. Tickets are still available, but they will sell out. To purchase tickets, visit www.beyondpink.net.
