-- The second annual Bra-Vo fundraising event will be held at the Ruth B. Shannon Center for the Performing Arts at Whittier College on Saturday, October 20, 2012 at 4 pm. The event will begin with hors d’oeuvres and refreshments followed by entertainment including performances from Little Willie G. and Jessica Golden. The highlight of the evening will be a lively “Survivor Walk” of the bras modeled by the artists.
Little Willie G. began his career in the mid-60s as a lead singer for “Thee Midniters” the legendary R&B group from East Los Angeles. An iconic and charismatic figure/singer on stage, he has drawn comparisons to Jackie Wilson and Frank Sinatra. Jessica Golden is a stand-up comedian best known for co-hosting The Adam Carolla Show and lending commentary on E!, VH-1, truTV, CMT and the style network. She performs in comedy clubs and colleges all over the country, special events and was featured in “Best of the Fest” at the Montreal Comedy Festival.
Presbyterian Intercommunity Hospital (PIH) is proud to be a part of Bra-Vo, an art exhibit designed to give breast cancer survivors a way of expressing themselves through art. Bra-Vo utilizes “bras” as the art form in which the artist can create an illustration of herself. The purpose of Bra-Vo is to provide a meaningful opportunity for breast cancer survivors to express and share their experience, increase awareness of breast cancer and raise funds that will be used to support services to patients at the Patricia L. Scheifly Breast Health Center at PIH.
Individual tickets are $50 and can be purchased at the Mariposa Boutique located inside the Patricia L. Scheifly Breast Health Center at PIH. For tickets and more information on this exciting event, please call 562.698.0811 Ext. 15638.
