OAKLAND -- A fundraiser called Beats for Boobs will raise money next month for the Women's Cancer Resource Center in Oakland.
The 26-year-old Oakland-based organization offers services to women with cancer, including an information and referral helpline, cancer and wellness workshops, support groups, in-home support and emergency financial assistance.
Beats for Boobs has held the fundraiser since 2003 to benefit a variety of breast cancer nonprofits groups.
This year's benefit is from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m. on Oct. 6 at Mezzanine, 444 Jessie St., in San Francisco. The cost is $25-$40 per person.
The event will be a mix of music, art, a fashion show, food and drinks, health information, games and prizes -- even a photo booth where you can dress in costume and take pictures with friends.
Since 2003, Beats for Boobs has raised more than $125,000 for Bay Area-based breast cancer agencies. This year, the group will donate to the Breast Cancer Emergency fund, which provides emergency financial assistance to low-income women and men in San Francisco, San Mateo and Santa Clara counties who are being treated for breast cancer; the Breast Cancer Fund, which is working to prevent breast cancer by eliminating exposure to toxic chemicals and radiation; and the Shanti Project's Breast Cancer Program, which offers support programs, in-home peer support, advocacy, translation and transportation assistance, and health education in Spanish,
