Breast Cancer Awareness Month is right around the corner, and if you’ve been part of the SocialBFly experience for at least a year you know that means another exciting installation of the Pink Party. However, If you’re a newbie let me first say “Welcome” and introduce you to this annual SocialBFly Signature Series event which strives to honor breast cancer survivors; encourage breast cancer awareness; and most importantly, raise funds for grassroots non-profit organization to continue their advancements in breast cancer research.
I’m so happy to announce that this year’s Pink Party recipient is mamorial, a new jersey based non-profit which is also an artistic multi-media celebration of breast cancer survival; the focus of which is an extensive collection of life castings of breasts affected by cancer. mamorial’s mission is to:
- generate greater global awareness and action
- provide greater motivation for early detection
- contribute to the healing process of survivors
- stimulate funding for intensified research, leading to a cure and prevention
The organization also hopes to become a permanent, large-scale travelling art installation that juxtaposes the inner strength and utter vulnerability of breast cancer patients, conveying the full spectrum of the physical and emotional effects of the breast cancer experience. mamorial was created by Mary Ellen Scherl, a New Jersey native and sculpurist whom you’ll learn more about in a future EXPOSED feature. In the meantime, you can learn more about mamorial at www.mamorial.org and stay tuned to Behind the Veil, Beyond the Vows as additional details about the 2011 installation of the Pink Party will be coming soon!!!
Don’t forget to join the mailing list so you aren’t left off the invitation list!!
