The 2016 "It's a Breast Thing" Event

It was a wonderful evening with bra decorators, exhibitors and generous sponsors from the community helping to bring together 500 people at Eagle Eye Golf Club for the 9th annual “It’s a Breast Thing” Event on Tuesday October 4th. With food and drinks, bra’s to vote and bid on,exhibitors to learn from, 2017 It’s a Breast Thing calendars to order and a donation to make the evening was off to a great start. A video of past events & photo shoots from over the years featuring our past calendar models was being viewed by our guests. Our hosts for the evening were Malinda Barr & Tim Barron who made the evening special. The evening program.....”Real Talk Lifestyle Changes Genetics & Reducing Risk” featuring a panel of local experts speaking and answering questions that guests were interested to know all about. At the end of the evening the top 12 bra ‘s were announced and will be modeled by local breast cancer survivors and featured in the 2017 It’s a Breast Thing calendar. We were very excited to let our guests know that we had just awarded our 100 grant to local breast cancer patients in need of financial support.

The 2017 event will be the 10th year anniversary for It’s a Breast Thing and will be on Tuesday October 3rd. A glamorous evening cocktail party is being planned with a live fashion show with past calendar models modeling the 30 bras and a silent and live auction are planned. Please join us for the fabulous evening in support of our mission to enrich the lives of local breast cancer patients on their journey to better health.
