Beyond Pink celebrates its 4th year helping women battle against breast cancer

This October 11, the runway will fill with models, local designers will show off their best, and hundreds will turn out to support Beyond Pink - a designer bra fashion show with proceeds going towards women who cannot afford thermography. To date, the charity has helped over 200 women in the battle against breast disease, a number not lost on those behind this event's success.

"Beyond Pink has become one of the premier events in the battle against breast cancer," said Beyond Pink co-founder Charlene 'Charlie' Brewer. "From the glamour of the runway, to the local artists and models, this event really does put the 'fun' in fundraising. I can't imagine a more entertaining, yet more worthy cause to support!"

For most women who benefit from the charity, the knowledge that their risk is low can be a tremendous gift. But there are those who are not so fortunate. So far, about a dozen women have learned they are high-risk. For many of them, this discovery has led to cancer fighting therapies that now stand a much better chance of success thanks to early detection. The combination of a mammogram, a clinical breast exam, and an FDA approved thermogram offers women a 95% chance of detection of breast disease.

Hosts Mark Peterson and Kristi Gorenson of KXLY will both return as MC's and celebrity auctioneers. This year's theme is 'The Most Fun You Can Have Saving a Life.' The event gets underway Friday, October 11th, at the Spokane Convention Center. Tickets can be purchased in advance at Last year's auction brought in over $20,000 to be used in the battle against breast cancer, with even more donated items and fashionable bras available this year.
