Tattoos For The Cure

Sign says it all

Last night I had the chance to check out this great event called
“Tattoos For The Cure”.
This event is held every October (Breast Cancer Awareness Month) for the past few years, I understand.  Tattoos for the Cure is a breast cancer charity event, founded by Terry Dipple, owner of Ink’d Chronicles. It’s a day of tattoos, art, music and fashion. Artists tattoo pink breast cancer ribbons (and other colors upon request) for an $80 donation with all proceeds donated to the Breast Health Program at the Lewis Family Cancer Care Center, in Pomona. In three years, the event has raised over $16,000 for the cancer center.
The event also featured a fashion show, that was outstanding by the way and live entertainment.

Quote of the Day:
“Cancer can take away all of my physical abilities. It cannot touch my mind, it cannot touch my heart, and it cannot touch my soul.”
Jim Valvano
