While the title may cause a chuckle, the topic is serious. At the end of last year my friend Robyn found out that she had breast cancer. At the beginning of January 2011 (Yes, that quickly! She’s in it to win it!) she underwent a 13 hour surgery to remove all traces of cancer… and start rebuilding/healing/kicking ass.
In January I decided something cool needed to be done. Something FUN… because surgery and cancer isn’t fun. Obviously. So I decided to put on a fashion show and raise money to promote healthy boobs.
Enter: Benefit for Boobies.
The undertaking was bigger than I thought, but luckily everyone involved is AMAZING and was super patient with me and extremely helpful. While I wrangled getting the Susan G Komen for the Cure involved, the designers that were involved went off to find their models and style team.
Once the date was set and I knew Robyn could be in town… things really started rolling. The Vox Theatre was where it was all going to take place, and can I just say that they are the most amazing group of people? Nichole is the event manager and I’m not sure I’ve met someone so helpful. I highly recommend and suggest this venue for anything you may need an event space for!!
Tony Beats volunteered his time to create some sexy music for the ladies to strut to on the runway. Going into it, both myself and Tony weren’t exactly sure what type of music to play (this being our first fashion show), but he completely nailed it. He’s amazing!
We ended up with three designers, and one stylists who styled her models using clothes from Arizona Trading Company. I was so impressed with everything. I honestly don’t even know what to say anymore… so I supposed I’ll just show you some photos. My friend Chris was there to shoot on my behalf, because I was running around like a crazy lady!
A HUGE thank you to everyone involved. Designers, hair, makeup, music. Everyone. You all helped make an amazing event and I couldn’t be more thankful.
TOGETHER WE RAISED $687 FOR BREAST CANCER RESEARCH!
I bet we raise even more next year! Did I say next year? Oh yes. I did.
Thanks again to everyone!!!
