Leaders from Atlanta’s corporate and philanthropic communities have come together to host their 3rd annual 80s-Themed ‘Bubbles & Bling’ Party-With-A-Purpose as they aim to raise $250,000 to strengthen Komen Atlanta’s mission to enable our community to detect and survive breast cancer.
Komen Atlanta is the local resource for breast cancer screening, diagnostic and support services. Through events, such as Race for the Cure and Bubbles & Bling, and individual, foundation and corporate contributions, Komen Atlanta raises funds to enable our community to detect and survive breast cancer by facilitating access to quality care, providing education and supporting research. Seventy-five percent of all funds stay in Atlanta to provide breast health services for those who could not otherwise afford them.
Twenty-five percent supports national research efforts to find a cure. Komen Atlanta has raised more than $41 million since its inception in 1991. Komen Atlanta is part of the national Susan G. Komen organization, which strives to save lives and end breast cancer forever. Komen is the largest private funder in the fight against breast cancer and has invested over $2.8 billion toward the cause.
Guests will enjoy delicious 80s food, drinks and music, as well as a huge ball pit and 80s arcade games on big screen TVs. Checka Cee from Yo Checka will serve as the evening’s “pink carpet host” and B98.5’s Madison James will host the evening’s live auction. In attendance will be local celebrities, media personalities and bloggers and one lucky guest will even win a one-carat diamond.
‘Bubbles & Bling’ Party-With-A-Purpose will be held on Saturday, January 30, 2016 from 7-11 p.m. at The Foundry at Puritan Mill. 916 Joseph E Lowery Blvd NW. Atlanta, GA 30318
