Breast cancer survivors to be honored, while celebrating life

On Thursday, October 9, Beats for Boobs will celebrate the 5th anniversary of its annual fundraiser to be held this year at 111 Minna Gallery. Beats for Boobs was originally founded in 2003 by Juliana Cochnar in honor of her mother who is a breast cancer survivor.

The annual fundraiser seeks to educate the community on breast cancer through a collaborative celebration of art, fashion, food and music. Proceeds from Beats for Boobs benefit Bay Area non-profit organizations committed to the eradication of breast cancer through research, education, screening, support services and treatment.

This year's theme, Vegas Glam, promises to be both fun and unique with a "Boobie Casino" that emphasizes the importance of early detection and overall awareness. A fashion show and fire dancers will also contribute to this one-of-a-kind event.
