Boobs! Boobs! Boobs!

Tonight's event was incredible for a number of reasons. First, it was amazing that such an inspirational event could come together in less than a week--and that had a lot to do with Lisa and Vinetta who own Rhizome Cafe. I appreciate much how they believe in what I do. Second, it was extraordinary how friends, family, and strangers alike came out to find out what was going on--whether they came to support me, to gather information, or to give to the cause. Finally, I was completely blown away by the beauty and the artistry of the boob casts. Everyone seemed to have a blast painting and marking the boobs (not to mention Chloe, who claimed about 8 of the boob casts as her own). It was truly a memorable evening. All told, I believe there were over 50 people in attendance, with about $1000 raised for various cancer organizations.

To top it all off, we made the news this evening. Here's the clip:
