The 2011 "It's a Breast Thing" Event

It’s a Breast Thing for 2011 was held at Eagle Eye Golf Club on October 4th in East Lansing. It was a beautiful evening with nearly 400 people in attendance. Everyone enjoyed themselves looking at the cleverly decorated bras, getting lots of information from all the great exhibitors, purchasing their 50/50 tickets and enjoying the wonderfully prepared food table. “The Total You: Inside and Out” was the theme of the program which was facilitated by Dr. LaKeeya Tucker of Alliance OB/GYN. Dr. Maude Guerin also of Alliance OB/GYN and Joy Berwald, Fitness Director @Westside YMCA held a Q & A session. Lots of information was exchanged and audience questions were answered by both the panel and Physicians in attendance: Dr. Poletes, Dr. Hanses, Dr. Tim McKenna & Dr. David Anderson. A special thank you to Dr. George Poletes for using his valuable ad time to promote this event.

We would like to thank our Bra Decorators as well as the Exhibitors for all the time and energy they so kindly gave to the event.
