Breast Strokes – Hadassah Bares All for A.R.T. (Awareness, Research, & Treatment)
The Houston Chapter of Hadassah is excited to announce our 2017 fundraising event!
The event consists of two parts:
Paint Day will take place on June 25th. Women will volunteer to have their chests body painted by artists and photographed (no faces). These photos will be blown up and placed on canvases to be revealed and auctioned off at part two.
The Big Reveal! This event will be held on the evening of October 22nd. It will be a night full of fun and creativity including a fine art auction, live music, hors d’oeuvres and cocktails.
Our 2017 honorees are Dr. Jenny Chang, Director of Houston Methodist Cancer Center, and Houston Chapter of Hadassah’s Fab Five, Lynn Goldberg, Barbara Horwitz, Carolyn Plessner, Marlene Rosenthal and Annette Sondock.
We are looking for the following:
- Sponsorship leads
- Volunteers: to work the event, to be models for Paint Day, artists to paint the models
- Artists to donate original works of art to the auction
