PRLog - Sep. 14, 2011 - COQUITLAM, British Columbia -- Keep A Breast Canada and 12 amazing women from the Terminal City All-Star roller derby team are collaborating on “We (heart) Boobies! Vancouver” a breast cast exhibit and silent auction to be held on December 10, 2011 at the Ayden Gallery in downtown Vancouver.
The Keep A Breast Foundation Breast Casts™ are part of KAB’s unique education and support programs that harness the power of art and artistic expression to communicate complex feelings and thoughts about health, the female form, and ultimately about breast cancer. This non-invasive breast casting program is done by placing strips of gauze that have been impregnated with plaster and dipped in warm water directly on the body. Combining sculpture, philanthropy, and symbolic artistry, the one of-a-kind plaster forms of the female torso are customized by artists, and will then be auctioned off to individuals who wish to support KABC and their education and support programs.
Some of Vancouver’s favourite All-Stars that you can find immortalized in plaster for the exhibit & auction are:
Flower Plowher Lucrushya Boardya
Mary Queen of Shotz
Smash’em Moiselle Stoli Von Stingray Tiki TimeBomb
Trixi Trippin Chix
The All-Stars, who are all huge supporters of Keep A Breast Canada and their mission to help eradicate breast cancer by informing young people about methods of prevention, early detection and support rallied together in hopes of raising money in support of KABC’s education, prevention and support programs.

All proceeds of the event go to Keep A Breast Canada.
