Charity event/silent auction to benefit Linda Mixon's fight against triple negative stage 4 breast cancer. Movie industry items, A role in a Film, Elvira signed items and much more!
(PRWEB) June 24, 2011
On June 30, The Elysium, Austin's premier Gothic/Industrial nightclub, will host “The Pink Party Fun House Cancer Benefit" for Linda Mixon. Linda is an entertainment industry professional who currently works as a community action director, helping individuals transition out of poverty. She also directs nutrition and Meals-On-Wheels programs for rural seniors.
In January 2011, Linda was diagnosed with Stage 4 Triple Negative Breast Cancer. The disease had metastasized and has spread to nearly every bone in her torso, and her hips and femurs. Due to spinal collapse, Linda has lost nearly 6 inches in height, going from 5’8” to 5’2”. Linda is receiving treatment at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX. The facility is approximately 260 miles from her home in San Saba, TX. Her husband, actor L. Christian Mixon, is filling the role of full-time caregiver.
Cancer that has spread to the bone is extremely painful. Linda is required to wear a brace 24 hours a day to avoid further catastrophic damage to her spine. She is able to walk only with the assistance of a cane. In spite of these daunting challenges, Linda still works 40+ hours per week. She is devoted to her work and the benefits it provides for community seniors.
The event is being hosted by “spooks-model” Kitty Korvette, an actress / model / musician who was a finalist on the Fox Reality TV program “Search for the Next Elvira”. Kitty will be overseeing a line-up of amazing talent provided by event coordinator Patrick LaBay, editor of Artstrada magazine. The line-up includes live mixing by amazing DJs, artistic pole dancing and other performance art. In addition, there will be vendors, treatment information and a silent auction.
The silent auction will offer a wide variety of goods and services from Texas artists and practitioners. Items for auction include a walk on role in the next Flatiron Productions film shot in Texas, Original art by Texas and National artists, Consultations and Lessons from working entertainment industry professionals, electronics, Signed items from Coffin Case, A one of a kind Kitty Korvette design motorcycle helmet, many other collectibles, custom clothing and two special signed items from Elvira, Mistress of the Dark!
Persons wanting more information may contact Patrick LaBay (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Christian Mixon (Lmixon(at)earthlink(dot)net). Items for the silent auction will be accepted until one hour before the start of the event on June 30th.
