ARLINGTON, VA - PINK JAMS!, a Washington, D.C. area project combining live music events, art and fashion, with the promotion of breast cancer awareness, announces the addition of Miss DC 2008, Kate Marie Grinold, and the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders to the lineup of VIP guests attending its November benefit concert.
The benefit concert, being held on Wednesday, November 18th at the Clarendon Ballroom in Arlington, Virginia, will raise money for breast cancer awareness and the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. Two high-energy, area bands, the Justin Trawick Group and Memphis 59, will be performing.
Serving as the concert's Emcee, Kate Marie is passionate about promoting women's health issues and adds, "everyone in one way or another has been affected by breast cancer, which is exactly why everyone should be involved in the battle to find a cure. I am proud to be involved with
PINK JAMS! and its effort to educate younger men and women about breast cancer."
Members of the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders will be making a special guest appearance that evening to promote breast cancer awareness, sign autographs, and encourage concert guests to make donations.
The concert, "PINK JAMS! at the Ballroom," is hoping to attract hundreds of men and women to show support for the cause. Advance tickets are available now on the website(www.pinkjamsdc.com) and will be available at the door. The concert is open to the community and is made possible through ticket sales, sponsorships, and cash donations. All net proceeds from the November PINK JAMS! event will go to support the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. Christa Floresca, the project's founder is participating in the 2010 Avon Walk for Breast Cancer - traveling 40 miles on foot in 2 days - out of a passion born of personal experience.
"In my early 30s, I lost a friend, my age, to this devastating disease," said Floresca. "Young men and women need the same breast cancer detection knowledge as they do over the age of 40. Breast cancer doesn't discriminate, and it isn't a sexist disease. An estimated three million woman are living with breast cancer, one million don't know it yet. This year, nearly 2,000 men will also be diagnosed. Together, we can make a difference in the fight against breast cancer."
